Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 3 min.
Cheese and tomato tart
Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C)

Line a 10-inch (26 cm) tart tin or mould with puff pastry, then place a second tin the same diameter on top of the pastry to prevent it puffing up during baking.

Stage 2 - 15 min.
Cheese and tomato tart
Bake in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes, to just precook.

Remove the top baking tin and leave the pastry to cool in its tin.

Turn the oven down to 410°F (210°C).

Stage 3 - 15 min.
Cheese and tomato tart
Meanwhile, Prepare 1 kg tomatoes, choosing different colours if possible to make your tart attractive.

Stage 4 - 30 min.
Cheese and tomato tart

Stage 5 - 3 min.
Cheese and tomato tart

Stage 6 - 7 min.

Brush the tomatoes with a little olive oil.

Stage 8 - 30 min.
Cheese and tomato tart
Bake low in the oven for about 30 minutes.

Stage 9
Cheese and tomato tart
Enjoy warm or cold.
Using several varieties of tomatoes with different colours and flavours is easy in summer. This will give you a superb and delicious tart. But of course, if you can only use one type of tomato, this will still work well.

After cooking, you can brush the tart with olive oil a second time to give it an attractive shine.

If you don't have a second tart tin, you can use the classic method of filling the tart case with ceramic baking beans or lentils instead.
1 day in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
Home made.

Passion fruit jellies
Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
