By the time this post goes up, I will be back in England. My first ‘cold’ Christmas for about 5 years.
While you’re all having delicious grilled food, and hopefully a couple of these tarts; I will be tucking into roast potatoes, covered in gravy.
However, while the food maybe different, the sentiments will hopefully be the same; love, peace and spending time with family.
The tarts symbolise summer for me; the deep ruby-redness of strawberries, and the combination of the orange cream is just divine, both to look at and to over-indulge in. Although sweet-pastry can be quite difficult to work with, (I have been many different methods for getting it into the tin nicely, but rolling dough between two baking sheets is the one definitely works the best for me) it is worth persevering and making your own pastry – these tarts are definitely worth it!
Wishing you all a safe and enjoyable summer holiday.
