[SHORT SNAPS] The ones that got away: Ruby Tart

Sometimes, there are desserts that just get away, the ones that are made to be eaten, rather than photographed and styled and blogged about. This was a quick snap I found in my archives of a tart I made last spring that was assembled at a friend's house and subsequently quickly demolished. It's from the maximalist phase I was going through back then: buckwheat-hazelnut crust, vanilla bean panna cotta filling, poached rhubarb and strawberries, hazelnut meringues. A friend dubbed this the "Ruby Tart."

One day I'll post a similar recipe, I promise. But this one got away. The best ones always do.


  1. I've been reading your blog for years, although I don't think I've ever commented. But since I started food blogging recently, I can totally relate to what you just said! There are days where I'll whip up something delicious and devour it and regret not documenting it. But then there are also days when I make something delicious but I have to WAIT until I've styled and shot to my satisfaction before I can have a nibble...

    I can see why this beautiful tart was demolished in no time!

  2. Hi Steph! I completely agree with you. I think I may still have some old photos that I never got round to posting them on my blog. Time to go rediscover them.. I haven't got the chance to work with rhubarb and can't wait to try it out, as soon I get my hands on these. Have a good weekend ahead! Cheers, Jo


I love hearing from you and reading your comments! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. Happy feasting!
