I am finishing the month of January (still in lockdown, always in lockdown) by sharing a delicious recipe for cannellini bean dip with crispy shallot. Something really easy to put together at the last minute and to enjoy with a variety of small dishes.
I declare the season for comfort food open! And what better way to start than with a delicious savoury galette such as this leek and Comté cheese version.
The name for this pastry is 'tarte rustique' in French and I quite like the sound of it and the homeliness it evokes. To me, it goes hand in hand with my favourite season: Autumn (if you did not know at this stage).
Have you ever tasted the delicious cheese that is smoked scamorza (scamorza affumicata, a cousin of mozzarella, only drier, firmer and smoked)?
I recently started buying this wonderful ingredient at my little cheese shop thinking I would use it mostly for cheese toasties. But after tasting it once, I was completely sold and knew it would end up in a lot more recipes, including this seasonal white pizza with smoked scamorza and pear.
Hurray! It's September and Autumn is at our doors! Actually, it feels like it has already been here for the past two weeks. At least on this side of the world where it has been raining A LOT lately.
This is my favourite season and I am here for it, including all the wonderful produce it has to offer. I am already starting to line up a few of my favourite autumnal recipes. This Autumn salad with pear, blue cheese and blackberry dressing is a good transition between seasons.
This blog post and delicious recipe for French tomato and mustard tart is brought to you from my new house. Well, this recipe was tried, photographed and eaten last month before delving into a lot of packing and paperwork. I am only sharing it now because life has been quite busy and also because we are currently living in the middle of many many boxes, DIY items and plastered walls waiting to be painted. Some time to adapt was needed.
I am hoping to share more delicious recipes soon but for now, I am getting used to our new house and more than anything, a kitchen that needs a bit of work (some of which might have to wait a little while). I also need to figure out the best place for me to work on images while things are still a bit messy.
For now, this delicious tomato mustard tart will do.
I cannot believe I am already sharing summer recipes here. Wasn't it winter time not that long ago? Did the lockdown also make us skip Spring altogether?
As much as the first month of lockdown went really slow, the rest happened in a flash.
We had completed on our very first house right before the lockdown and had not been able to get some much needed work done or even move there (because damp proofing would have required us to stay away for a while). And suddenly, work is being done and we are already packing our boxes for the big move (which we will do by ourselves because of social distancing).
