Tomato Tarte Tatin | Tomato Upside Down Tart

A surprising little tarte, intense in flavours, perfect Sunday Lunch or picnic food. Serve with a green salad.

This is an amazing little tart, layered with caramelised onions, oven dried tomatoes and feta. I make it as 4 individual tarts and serve with a green salad and a vegetable salad.

Not only does it taste sensational but it looks simply stunning and unusual.

The taste of the tomatoes is intense, due to the very slow drying of them beforehand. The pie is fragrant with fresh basil, sumac and parsley. Delicious!

Not a fast food, this one. It does take some time to prepare, due primarily to the slow baking of the tomatoes. Best to prepare the tomatoes, pastry and onions the night before and assemble and cook when you need it.

Another Ottolenghi stunning dish.

The style of Ottolenghi’s vegetarian dishes is layered flavours created by layered elements. No other recipe shows that as much as this dish.

Asparagus in Pastry with Cream and Fresh Pecorino

Another warm day, and cooking on the BBQ seems like a good idea. It is quite easy to cook these pastries in a covered BBQ.

Another warm day, and cooking on the BBQ seems like a good idea. It is quite easy to cook these asparagus pastries in a covered BBQ. But it does need good quality asparagus – stringy stalks spoil the experience. You can, of course, cook these in the oven as well, at about 200C.
