French Tarts
50 Sweet and Savory Recipes
Hardcover      ISBN: 1885183399
Glossy, tempting, and brazenly luscious, the French tart is a scrumptious seductress. In French Tarts, Linda Dannenberg presents fifty of the most delectable and easy-to-prepare savory and sweet tarts from the top bakers, chefs, and great home cooks of France. The featured tarts hail from many different regions--Provence, Burgundy, Bordeaux, the Riviera, and, of course, Paris. Photographed on location throughout France, Guy Bouchet's full-color images, combined with the charming illustrations and rustic hand lettering of renowned illustrator Vavro, create the literary equivalent of an authentic French culinary experience. Among the savory tart recipes are: a pungent Pissal-adiFre--the onion, black olive and anchovy tart so popular in Nice; the GGteau dePommes BoulangFre, a traditional "Baker's Wife" potato-and-goat-cheese tart; and the remarkable Tartelettes NapolTon au Saumon FumT, an intensely flavored smoked salmon tart. French Tarts also contains recipes for sweet tarts including: a delectable version of the traditional Tarte Tatin, this one an upside-down apple-and-pear tart from the Anjou region of France; the Tarte aux Framboises Proventale, a baked raspberry-and-flan tart from the C(te d'Azur; and an exquisite Tarte au Chocolat InfusT au Basilic--an intense chocolate tart perfumed with basil. Savory with cheese and vegetables or sweet and succulent with fresh fruit, nothing captures the essence of French pastry more eloquently than the tart.
