Leek tart with cured olives and aged Gruyère
Making savory tarts requires a bit of patience and an unhurried stint in the kitchen, but they are well worth the effort. To me tarts are a sophisticated comfort food that’s totally irresistible and one that I love spending time crafting.

Here the slightly spicy-but-sweet leeks mingle with the salty cured olives and the pungent cheese to make every bite of this tart burst with umami goodness.

The most intimidating part of making tarts is, of course, the dough. The Parmesan dough used in this recipe has been in my repertoire for many moons and I can say with confidence that it is foolproof. To show you how to make tart dough effortlessly and confidently, I’ve recorded video clips of every step – make sure to watch.

So dive right in! Create a beautiful tart, right in your kitchen… You’ll have a great time making it and an even better time relishing every morsel!
