We tried 2 new recipes this week, both of which were excellent. First of all there was Dan Lepard’s recipe for ‘Summer Pork Pie’. Packed full of best quality coarsely chopped pork, gammon, onion and fresh herbs and wrapped in a Dijon flaky pastry, this would provide a great picnic lunch or a very tasty supper with a nicely dressed salad. Jon (husband) simply scoffed his in the van on his way to work one morning. That’s fine too!
We also tried David Tanis’ recipe for apricot tart, one of the nicest fruit tarts we have tasted. The slightly caramelised, soft apricots contrasted so well with the crisp pastry and as the whole assembly is slightly rustic, roughly trimmed pastry folded up over the edges of the fruit, the whole effect was really pleasing. No doubt this recipe could be replicated with most seasonal, soft fruits.
2 great new finds which will be appearing on our product list soon!
