Ham and pea savoury tart

Ham and pea savoury tart

In collaboration with Brixton Windmill and using their organic wholemeal flour A simple and super easy ham and pea savoury tart. It’s an amazing flavour combination. Ham, peas and cream is one of my most favourite pasta sauces ever. And it works amazingly well as a tart or quiche filling too. I came up with the idea for this tart for the

Mango, coconut frangipane and cardamom tart

Mango, coconut frangipane and cardamom tart

In collaboration with Brixton Windmill and using their organic wholemeal flour The sweetness and lightness of coconut frangipane, the delicate fresh mango flavour and the side-note (little) kick of cardamom sugar make this the perfect springtime dessert. I found out about the so called ‘Indian mango season’ only in recent years. In Italy there is no such a thing, and yes, surely

Rustic galette with roasted butternut squash, cavolo nero pesto and hazelnut gremolata - The Italian baker

Rustic galette with roasted butternut squash, cavolo nero pesto and hazelnut gremolata - The Italian baker

In collaboration with Brixton Windmill and using their organic wholemeal flour Galette, torta salata, crusty cake, savoury tart. Bring them all on. I must say, I particularly love the versatility of a galette and its rich buttery pastry. Just add or take away some sugar from a classic pastry recipe, and you can bake anything from a savoury tart with cheese and

Blueberry and almond frangipane tart - The Italian baker

Blueberry and almond frangipane tart - The Italian baker

In collaboration with Brixton Windmill and using their organic wholemeal flour For those who don’t know it, I have a lot of love for wholemeal flour (and wholemeal ingredients in general). And if you don’t have a lot of love for it, you simply should. Wholemeal flour desserts are just wonderful. Why? Well, they simple have that little bit extra special given by

Carrot and ginger spritzer tarts - The Italian baker

Carrot and ginger spritzer tarts - The Italian baker

#EatYourCocktails my grandma used to say. Ok, no. But. These carrot and ginger spritzer tarts are inspired by a cocktail recipe. Actually, a mocktail. A few months ago, I found a recipe for a carrot and ginger “spritzer” in a magazine made with well, carrot juice, ginger beer and lemon juice. It caught my attention, particularly because I really love ginger beer and

Raspberry and lemon white chocolate mousse tart - The Italian baker

Raspberry and lemon white chocolate mousse tart - The Italian baker

Happy birthday to me! I mean, seriously, happy birthday to me. Two weeks ago, it was my birthday, and I decided I wanted to bake myself a cake, and a special one. You know, one of those cakes that have a long list of ingredients, and you can find only in the best patisserie shops, and that many people would be

Toffee and figs ‘fregolotta’ tart - The Italian baker

Toffee and figs ‘fregolotta’ tart - The Italian baker

This recipe brings me back to my Venetian origins. The “fregolotta” is a bake from the Veneto region, perhaps the most popular cake/tart/dessert after tiramisu’ and pandoro. Just a simple and humble cake/tart/dessert. But. Full. Of. Flavour. The type of flavour that despite its simplicity keeps you coming back for more and more. But, a bit of history first. *Majestic

Apple curd tart with crème fraîche whipped ganache - The Italian baker

Apple curd tart with crème fraîche whipped ganache - The Italian baker

We all know that winter months offer limited options in terms of seasonal fruit to play with, unless you spent the previous summer making preserves and jams (or you live in the Caribbean). However, that doesn’t necessarily mean ‘boring’. For quite a while I have been wanting to bake version of the classic lemon meringue tart – oh boy, I love

Kiwi fruit tart (‘crostata’) with creamy English custard - The Italian baker

Kiwi fruit tart (‘crostata’) with creamy English custard - The Italian baker

The humble “crostata” is one of Italy’s most classic and recognisable bakes, which is eaten throughout the country in all sorts of variations, shapes, sizes and fillings. Large, small, sliced, with chocolate or jam, the element that immediately identifies a crostata is the criss-cross lattice work on the top which lets you catch a glimpse at the filling inside. My search

Rainbow chard and smoky mushroom savoury tart - The Italian baker

Rainbow chard and smoky mushroom savoury tart - The Italian baker

Springtime brings back to the table a huge variety of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables that are usually not available during wintertime (or well, most of the times they’re available anyway but don’t really taste as good as they do when they’re in season). As well as some excitement. And a long list of bakes. And…rainbow chard. One of my

Rhubarb, orange and pink peppercorn yoghurt tart - The Italian baker

Rhubarb, orange and pink peppercorn yoghurt tart - The Italian baker

It’s spring and with spring comes rhubarb season in the UK. Warmer weather is hopefully coming soon too. This rhubarb orange and pink peppercorns yoghurt tart is the perfect dessert to serve at any outdoor and indoor dinner party. From the outside, it looks like a no-bake cheesecake, but it is not. Believe it or not, for this tart I was

The definitive fennel, olive and spinach pesto tart - The Italian baker

The definitive fennel, olive and spinach pesto tart - The Italian baker

One of my favourite comfort foods? Savoury tarts. The choice of fillings is endless, and they are damn easy, damn delicious. Well, until your Italian grandma appears in your dreams and tells you ‘What? Ready-made puff pastry? Shame on you. And what are you going to do with all that crap on top? That’s not good for you.’ Ok nonna, fair enough. Now,

Redcurrant, caramel and vanilla tart - The Italian baker

Redcurrant, caramel and vanilla tart - The Italian baker

I live in South London and one of my favourite places in the neighbourhood is Vauxhall City Farm. This hidden gem is the most central of all the city farms in London, and it is a local beloved place for me. I've been on and off volunteering at the farm for a few years now, and I've recently started working

Apple and peanut financier traybake cake - The Italian baker

Apple and peanut financier traybake cake - The Italian baker

Apple cake is one of my childhood memories. How many times I have eaten it, particularly during winter months. Yes, winter comes, and so does apple cake. Or apple tart. Or baked apples. Or cookies stuffed with apples. Apples everywhere. However, I must say it was never one of my favourites. You know, kids. Kids and their love for chocolate.
