This tart is created by the combination of 2 recipes: one from E. Knam and the other, from a friend of mine, Isabelle. It is a simple but very tasty: pears pair deliciously with chocolate and pistachios pair deliciously with both. The whole is moist and crunchy, thanks to the frangipane, to the pears, to the shortcrust pastry and thanks to the crumble. In a word, you find all the elements to prepare a truly delicious tart.
Lemon and mango cloud …… why this name? The mold I used is called Cloud and the dessert is really light, airy as a cloud. A fresh taste thanks to the white chocolate lemon mousse and a strong flavor thanks to lemon confit which gives a particular note to the dessert. The recipes are adapted by great Italian and French pastry chefs such as Gianluca Fusto and Philippe Conticini. I thank my friend Isabelle for the recipe of lemon confit and Mercotte for the recipe of the cake biscuit citron.
A simple but tasty recipe. A brioche dough made with mascarpone cheese, soft and silky. Perfect brioches for breakfast, brunch or simply if you want something gorgeous to taste.
Chocolate and hazelnut…..in a word gianduja…. one of the most tasting combination ever. The tart is very easy to prepare: it’s comprised of a hazelnut tart dough, a layer of cocoa and almond filling and a top layer of light and deliciously creamy hazelnut bavaroise cream. The recipes of the single 3 layers are from great italian pastry chefs…….you can’t get wrong.
A few days ago I tried this recipe for making brioche dough, by the famous itaian Patry Chef Luca Montersino:it is the best I’ve ever made. It is a particular dough, because you prepare the dough twice…..it is more difficult to explain than prepare it. Brioche dough is not so sweet and not so buttery……so you cannot feel guilty eating a slice. I tried a braided brioche, but you can shape the dough as you prefer. Try: it is healthy and delicious, for a special breakfast.
Do you hear someone refer to a “tropical fruit season”? With tropical fruits….generally we refer to summer time…….but they’re imported and are pretty much available year round, so you can use them whenever you feel. For this dessert, I wanted to highlight the sour taste of passion fruit, really perfectly balanced with mango and coconut. It has an airy ethereal texture, so it’s not nearly as heavy as you could think. Ready to cook?
A very simple tart, but really delicious. Shortcrust pastry has been unflavored with lemon zest and juice, but if you prefer, you can use cinnamon. Once you arrange the apple slices in the tart shell, a rich and creamy custard is then poured over the apples and the tart is baked until the custard has set. So, nothing difficult to prepare, but you will get a gorgeous tart.
French pastry chefs are famous for their “Lemon meringue tart”. Every one has his own recipe, especially for the lemon filling. In addition to lemon juice and eggs, they can use starch, gelati sheets, a lot of butter or white chocolate…. But everyone wants to achieve the same goal: a soft and velvety batter with a strong lemon flavor. generally it is combined with a billowy meringue, which can be flamed with a torch, or not. I decided to add small French meringues … just to get the right combination of textures. I read so many recipes,by the most famous Italian and French pastry chef, to get the so-called perfect lemon cream … ..and to realize my first lemon meringue tarts I chose the recipe by a great master of Italian pastry Emmanuele Forcone. But in the future, do not miss the recipes by the great French pastry chefs.
A creamy, stunning and gorgeous dessert, perfectly balanced with white peaches and blueberries. To moisten the sponge, I choose a blueberry home made compote, but you can use store bought jam. The dessert is not difficult to prepare, plan the steps and everything will be easier.
It never happens I prepare the same dessert in a close time. Here I can talk about a special situation…… I prepared the fantastic Madama Dorè, by Gianluca Fusto, twice in a week. It is a simple tart, but you find a combination of exceptional flavors: a frangipane enriched with orange zest and saffron and soft peaches. It is crisp, but at the same time it is soft, tasty, fragrant This dessert has all the items to turn a tart in THE TART.
