  • Walnut tart crust with roasted harvest fruits & maple glaze

    At first glance this looks like a classic fruit tart to be eaten by the slice. However, with this tart you have to deconstruct it in order to eat it. The nutty walnut shell is not only intended to hold the sweet globes of roasted fruit together; it’s meant to be smashed up, crumbled and piled. Slap on a dollop of clotted cream or tart crème fraîche and dig in.
