Plum and black cherry Tart

It's not plum season here, we are in the middle of winter but I wanted to try out this recipe from  I had gotten myself a new flan dish and was itching to use it. So I bought myself a can of plums and another of black cherry. The recipe is very easy to follow.

I drained my fruits from the can and set aside the liquid, This can cooked to reduce the liquid and used later as jus to serve. While I was waiting for my pastry shell to chill, I started to prepare the almond fillings. I think you have to chill the moulded pastry after handling it during kneading and moulding. I had watched on Youtube tutorial on making of shortbread pastry earlier and learned that chilling it before baking, gives it that extra crunch.

Don't forget the very important Step 5, OMG!! I forgot to put the weights down on the pastry shell, during the pre-bake and as a result, it ballooned up like an Indian bread :) Hahahahaha! Lucky I was able to rescue it by putting the weights in halfway thru baking. But I ended up burning it anyway when I removed the foil to allow centre to brown a little. Must watch the temperature..sigh!

Take 2 was done with the pastry in the pie dish. I was extra careful this time and was successful in not burning the pastry during prebake.

And here it is, my plum and cherry Tart... Pie whatever you want to call it :) You an eat it on its own or served with cream and the jus reduction.

P.S I think my next post should include bloopers :) hahahhaha..

Crust Pizza

Hey all, I just had to brag about the best lunch ever today, we had gourmet pizzas downtown after a work assignment and I must say, it was most delicious. Thanks to the boss lady Nicole for a lovely lunch and it was a very good surprise ;)

It was gourmet style and pricey but oh sooooo good! Nic has always been harping about these pizzas since like forever and I would always say to her, "No way... $20 bucks? You're mad"

Today, I found out why she is so mad about these pizzas. They were bloody freaking awesome!!! Best pizzas, I have ever tasted! Generous toppings, flavoursome and lovingly made!

This was my lunch was so yummy... at the time of writing, six hours later, I am still full ;) I love the Peri Peri chicken and Mexican. We also ordered Sausage Duo and Garlic Prawns in halves as we wanted to try out the menu. Nic is a fan but Brenton and I have never had Crust pizzas before.


Doesn't it look fantastic? Taste real good too. It was not busy, we were happy to sit down to eat our lunch there. There's tables and chairs in there and not a bad spot to have lunch and people watch the main street.
