Yummy Berry Tart

Hello food lovers,

In our house, Sunday is synonymous for lazy day. However it is also a day where we take our time in the kitchen and cook meals for our friends. This weekend was slightly different; we decided to cook up a storm on Saturday and when Sunday came around, we were still eating leftovers so I decided to bake a tart instead. Considering the amazingly mild weather we have been experiencing these past few weeks, I got inspired to make a berry tart. This is probably the easiest tart you can bake, just make sure you get the freshest berries available!

Yummy Berry Tart (serves 6-8 people)

1 pack of puff pastry
250ml half fat creme fraiche
100g raspberries
100g strawberries (sliced)
100g blueberries
4 figs (sliced)
1 egg yolk
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon icing sugar (optional)

1) Preheat your oven to 180 degrees
2) Wash all the fruits except for the raspberries (they tend to get soggy if you put them under water)
3) Roll the puff pastry in the shape of a rectangle or circle depending on your pan about 2cm thick
4) Using a fork, gently pick the dough all throughout then brush the egg yolk, including edges and cook in the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden.
5) Once the dough has cooled off, mix the creme fraiche with the sugar and spread on top of the dough.
6) Add the berries.

Optional: you can add a tea spoon of icing sugar as a topping

Serve with a cup of tea, bon appetit!

Paulo's Seafood Paella

With last weekend hitting summer temperatures, Clem and Paulo invited us to a chilled break in the French country side. On Sunday Paulo cooked a beautiful seafood Paella to feed the hungry men that went hunting in the wild that morning and for the lazy ones that had been chilling by the pool. 

The Paella was packed with flavours, from locally picked tomatoes to fresh seafood and herbs. The giant prawns were yummy, very moist and juicy. The chorizo also added an extra kick. 

Thanks for such a lovely lunch guys , it was great !!!
