|Mushroom tart ad crusty bread|
Above are pictures of a delicious mushroom tart. Baby button mushrooms in bite size pastry inspired me to recreate a pastry dish that I saw the Hairy Bikers make.
I was also inspired by the desserts (I had two) that I ate. Firstly I had the standard chocolate cake which was lovely moist. I then noticed that there were chocolate sundaes for people with allergies .......... I managed to get a chocolate sundae (although I had no allergies) which was amazing. I'm hoping to make some ice-cream over the summer and even have some recipes in mind (Nigella's peanut sundae sauce, pina colada no churn ice-cream, from Nigella Express and Nigella Kitchen), but until then, I will be ordering sundaes when I eat out.
After watching the Hairy Bikers make a ploughmans tart (which was quite similar to the mushroom tart as they are both are canapes and small savoury tarts), I felt inspired to recreate one of my favourite lunches in a tart form. The recipe can be found here ploughman canape. Making these canapes was very easy; a basic shortcrust pastry in a muffin tin, mayo, cheese, cherry tomatoes and grapes. This tart was appreciated at home and was a perfect addition to all the new years eve food that I cooked. (They even tasted good the following day).
