little things

tart01sometimes, it’s the little things that you discover that makes a big difference. for example, lining a tart pan.

after lining a tart pan with the dough, i like to lay a sheet of baking paper on top.

tart02and then i grab a bottle of balsamic vinegar and roll it right over the paper. a bottle of cidre or wine will also work.

tart03then i peel away the paper. and the excess dough falls right off.

simple, no?

tart04and when i make a quiche, it is always a ratio of 1 egg to 100ml of cream. but then one day i decided to add a bit of leftover tomato coulis that was sitting in the fridge.

tart05and combined with leftover leeks and ham, a very orange quiche was born. and eaten.

i love quiches because rarely is planning involved. if it is edible and you can fit it in a tart pan, it is game.

and normally always delicious.
