I wasn't sold on this tart after reading the recipe. Mustard, eggs, cream... ummm... no thanks. But, I'm trying to branch out, try new things, learn new techniques, so I went for it. I made the carrot and leek version. I love leeks. The cashier didn't know what they were. I love when that happens, makes me kinda feel like a foodie, just for a second.
Did I love this tart? Love is such a serious thing. I'd say we were in like. Although, I must say, I sliced myself a piece the next day, gave it a quick 20 second warm up in the microwave - and the flavors actually did grow on me more since the night before. So, now I kind of really like it. Our relationship is still developing.
Can I also tell you that the crust on this tart has been my most successful yet. I've made several tarts and pies in the past, but this crust was flakey, tender, melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and stood above the rest. I'm not sure what I've done wrong in the past, but this time, I got it right!
