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.
