Summer Time Strawberry Tart

A beautiful red tart for the season when strawberries are abundant and you cant get enough of them.
By Tania Cusack

I love Strawberries and when they are sweet and juicy and they seem to be so cheap you can buy a punnet a day and still go back for more…… thats when I make this tart. It just showcases their gorgeous flavour and colour and makes you happy with each bite.

Given the colour ( and the obvious heart shaped fruit) , now finished I am dedicating this tart to the memory of my Dad. He has been gone 10 years now.

He also loved food. When we were young his love of Kransky sausages, pigs totters and garlicky relishes, disgusted us beyond all recognisable pre-teenage measures .

Sometimes the ones we miss are the ones that were omnipresent in our lives…. and not always in a pleasant way.  As time moves on I see him in myself a lot, and this makes me laugh and cringe simultaneously. Dad you naughty, silly, annoying, wonderfully handy, kind hearted man ……. This glistening Strawberry Frangipane tart a bleeding heart of red  love, and loss is for you
