Recipe for Yogurt Berry Tart / Tart Au Yogurt to celebrate the legendary Julia Child’s 100th birthday
In my early years of food blogging, I won the book ‘My Life in France’ for showcasing the best marketplace, and this foodblogger shipped this book to me all the way from Switzerland. I’ve read the book many times and it’s never failed to inspire me on how Julia found her life’s calling in her 40s, how she had never been interested in cooking until then, how she went on to write the most applauded cookbook of her times and went on to make the most watched cookery show of her time.
This is a simple recipe, by French cooking standards. I used a simple mix and ‘press-into-tin and bake’ crust recipe over one that needs resting and rolling. The filling itself it extremely easy-just good yogurt, eggs, sugar, flour topped with fruit and nuts of your choice. I was telling my fellow group members how this makes a perfect breakfast recipe, minus the crust.
Coming to the other two birthdays, it is the husband’s birthday today and we did a little ‘cake’ cutting ceremony over our morning tea and had it for breakfast. It is also India’s 65th Independence Day which makes this dessert fit three special occasions beautifully.
