FFWD: Gerard's Mustard Tart
Up this week for French Fridays with Dorie is Gerard's Mustard Tart.
Mustard tart? Yeah. OK.
I can do tarts and I like mustard well enough... so, hey, I figured I'd give it a whirl.
Dorie's main version included carrots and leeks with the mustardy custard filling. A tomato version was given as an alternate and since it IS tomato season and I just happened to have a pile of tomatoes fresh from the garden, that's the direction I went. I added some dried basil too.
The tart was wonderful! I cut the recipe down to 1/3 of the batch and made one 4-inch tart (although I had enough custard left over so I could have probably made two of them). It was perfect for dinner... so much so that I didn't even share! Sorry family. Maybe next time.
This month only, you can find the recipes on the FFWD website. After that, you're just gonna have to get your hands on the book. Au revoir (that's "goodbye" in French) until next week!
