    The tart is ready when it is nice and golden brown.

Remarks:

If you don't have Maroilles cheese, you can use other ones instead. I advise you to go for a rather soft strong cheese like Reblochon, Munster, Morbier, etc.

You can also replace puff pastry by shortcrust.

And to drink?

A good beer, possibly from the northen France, a jenlain for example.
