I hope the holiday period is (or has been) going well for you. As you may know from reading this blog, there’s often a lot of cooking going on in my kitchen, especially during the big Fall and Winter holidays. This weekend was no exception…and there were several elements of the meal, each the product of delightful collaboration among myself and my visitors. I did not document all the food that was prepared this time around, but I am happy to report that it was a great meal… I did grab a before and after shot of a lattice coconut tart that materialized.
You might have seen a lattice tart on here before… not sure. I did the lattice work very carefully on this one because I’d made a very delicate flaky pastry that was tricky to work with… So the interleaving of the strands to make the lattice was a challenge. But I hope it is tasty! (It has not been eaten at all yet… there was just too much food… dessert last night was a date pudding (that took some hours to prepare) with a thick and very British egg custard that I threw together at the end…)
