A tart full of good intentions.

I am making a resolution to read the recipe before I start cooking; I like to set myself achievable goals, and it would be nice not to have to shout at myself so often. This delicious Panade de Pommes is packed with good things, and promises much. However, through a deft culinary trick,  it is irrevocably fixed in its non stick pie dish. Not an easy achievement, in fact on a par with Roy Rogers, who could make Trigger, his horse, come just by whistling. In truth, I know how I did it ….. I wish I didn’t, as  it would then be a mystery rather than a glaring testament to silliness. It is to be taken to a New Year’s Eve gathering as my offering to a buffet. All will be well until someone cuts a slice and tries to lift it out – there’s something quite Arthurian about the idea, but I think the reality will be more shaming. By then I am hoping not to give a flying fig – Happy New Year.

    I hope your figs flew… I love it; we all have those dishes, me more than my share! I have been floating here on your site and over at your photography site. WOW, I know you have heard that before, but it is easy and I can spell it, they are incredible. I love the clouds, the steeple, the cow, the chocolate tart; each and all of your shots are beautiful. If I get back to France, I would love to have a day (I would need more, lots more time, but I do not think I have money enough to learn all that you could teach me!) learning a ‘few’ things from you. I can always hope. I read your post a day or so ago about the cooking school (now I cannot remember her name… by the river! I love the pictures of yours that she used, lovely) it would be such a pleasure. I can hope that I can return and take a day or two at each, which would be splendid….RaeDi
