Roast Vegetables Tarte Tatin

You can vary the vegetables according to your taste or what’s in season and make this Tarte Tatin a great starter or accompaniment to any meat meal. I’ve used new root vegetables, onion, and chicory, a few pieces of chilli pepper, thyme leaves – as simple as that – and homemade rough puff pastry. Serve Roast Vegetables Tarte Tatin warm, with a glass of cold white wine. Find the recipe here...

Asparagus and Red Peppers Quiche

Asparagus is a wonderful spring vegetable and considered to be one of the delicacies of the vegetable world. It’s good grilled and roasted, fried with exotic spices, with pasta and lasagne, in omelettes and soups. Fresh, crispy green shoots look exceptional in this elegant French quiche and their nutty flavour comes perfectly with the sweetness of roasted pepper semi-confit and savoury custard-based filling.  It is a perfect springtime appetizer, makes delicious light lunch.

Rhubarb Tart

This is a very simple recipe for a sour-sweet rhubarb tart, ideal for dinner parties. You only need thin firm and crisp pink stalks, cut into 2 cm pieces, a handful of sultans and good quality sweet shortcrust pastry, best homemade. The recipe doesn’t call for cooking sugar syrup or simmering rhubarb in sweet water. Just fill a buttery pastry case with raw rhubarb cubes, tossed with sugar and cinnamon, and then bake. Serve warm or cold sprinkled with icing sugar. The tart pairs perfectly with vanilla ice cream or custard. Find the recipe here...

Courgette and Cheddar Quiche

Courgettes or zucchinis are wonderful summer vegetables. They are now in season in the UK and this season will last fortunately quite a long time - until September. Dark green courgettes are the most popular variety but white and yellow kinds can be also spotted on markets. There are many ways to cook the courgettes, the most popular is barbecuing, frying and stir-frying. But zucchinis are also wonderful as the main ingredient of tarts and quiches because they go hand-in-hand with cheese. They make delicious combination with feta, Parmesan, ricotta and many more. In this recipe, the best friend of the courgettes is cheddar cheese. Find the recipe here...
