Rough Puff Pastry

I find making pastry really relaxing. The need for precision and the hands-on approach make me feel very at home. Rough puff pastry is a great alternative to shop-bought puff pastry if you want to make it yourself. It’s not the quickest thing to make but it sure is quicker than standard puff pastry. To be honest, most of the time is spent while the pastry is chilling so all-in-all not that time-consuming. Along with this I publish my Mini Onion Pithiviers recipe – a must for any dinner party!

Apple Tart

Apple Tart A

Apple tart is a classic, and for that I’ve not messed about with it or tried anything crazy here. Sweet shortcrust pastry, stewed apple filling, caramelised apple topping. That’s it – and it’s delicious!

(In case you’re wondering, the picture was taken just before the final bake.)
