Mushroom tart on puff pastry; pea pods – 5 January 2018

Now that we’ve got the wine, I wondered if we could do the tart it went with. That is to say: at Piperade, we shared a mushroom tartlet, and asked the server/bar guy what wine to have with it. We … Continue reading

4/5 Tomato tart; English peas – 21 November 2017

I went to the Tuesday farmers’ market wondering if the heavy rains had eliminated the possibility of more tomatoes from Dirty Girl Produce. But they’re south of here, where it rains less, most of the time, and indeed, there they … Continue reading

On spring break, so I’m doing the cooking for this week. I made a dish from the second Greens cookbook, which I’ve made before and we’ve really loved. Basically, a yeasted, unkneaded crust of flour, water, softened butter, lemon zest, … Continue reading

Tomato tart – 19 October 2013

Having cheddar cheeses, some basil left by our friend M, a leftover leek, and a pile of dry-farmed early girls from Dirty Girl Produce, it seemed obvious I should make this tart again. The recipe is in my post from … Continue reading

Vegetable tart; pear salad – 24 December 2011

This was a delicious tart, especially the crust, which was exceptional. The filling was incredibly time-consuming, but a different filling would work and be less demanding. The recipe is from Cook’s Illustrated, Jan/Feb 2012. The filling is mainly leeks, sauteed … Continue reading

4 September 2010 – Tomato and leek tart

Finally managed to have this tart again. I went to Berkeley’s Saturday Center St. market and tried out some dry-farmed tomatoes from Quetzl farm. I found them tasty but not as good a texture as those from Dirty Girl. Perfect … Continue reading

18 August 2010 – Tomato, cheese and leek tart; mustard greens sauteed with bacon

Tomatoes again. D didn’t think he could bake a bread this morning, so last night we decided I’d keep cooking, b/c I do a lot of things that don’t need bread with them. Like this. Violating format here, but I … Continue reading

31 July 2010 – Tomato, cheese and leek tart
