The tart turned out very well. Thanks again Buttercup.
Dove, I have never attempted hot thingy pastry in my life but I have told myself I will crack the whole pastry thing in the next year or so now I have so much free time previously devoted to running the dance club. Today's tart was ready made and ready rolled so I have a way to go.
OH likes pickled anything and andouillettes so clearly a man of undiscerning taste buds. He'll happily sit and prick green walnuts if he can have sport on TV.
I've found Vendée raised beef - excellent; wines - mediocre so far; veggies grown in sand - specialty of the coastal plain and very good; chuck from Challans - also very good. Locally reared pork is very good so I'll keep an eye out for hams.
