My Frangipane Tart
After what seems like a 4 year cooking hiatus, I've decided to make a concerted effort to cook some good food. I used to really enjoy cooking and experimenting with new recipes. However, over the last few years cooking food has turned into a means of survival rather than something to really enjoy. I've had three children in that time and thus cooking has been put on the backburner well and truly.
I decided a few months ago to start really cooking again. (Don't get me wrong, I have been cooking this whole time. Very nutritional meals in fact. But on the interesting scale they come in at a very lame 2/10).
Now, I haven't dived into it, more slowly lowered myself into it after long drawn out wading (like my bigger sister into cold water). I thought the best way to get back into it was to attempt a new dish weekly and produce a couple of tasty things a week. Nothing complicated, just tasty and enjoyable.
To help things along, I decided to start watching the masterclass on Masterchef Australia aired on Friday nights. Watching something made always seems far more inspiring than what a cookbook or magazine can deliver, methinks.
Last week I made the pizzas demonstrated on the masterclass - Classic Margherita and Pizza Bianca with Potato. Yum! This weekend I made quesadillas and the frangipane tart. Both yum!
