FFWD - Gérard's Mustard Tart
I simply could not wait to make this mustard tart featured on page 154 of Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan. I loved everything about it when I was reading through the recipe and was excited to be using leeks, which I seldom use.
I followed the recipe pretty closely however I did need to make a few small changes and as always, I did make a few errors where I had to adapt. When I was making the crust, I needed to add more ice water before my crust fully came together. When it did, it was wonderful to work with.
Turns out, it was all good. When it came to the filling it was just enough to cover the crust, shrinkage and all. Speaking of filling...
I poured the filling in the crust and artfully placed my sauteed leek and carrots in a spoke like pattern on top.
Woo Hoo, it was turning out just like the one pictured in the book. Score!
