4.0 out of 5 stars Savoury treats that show Eric isn't just a sugar star, 27 July 2012
This review is from: Tart it Up!: Sweet and Savoury Tarts and Pies (Hardcover)
In sharp contrast to his last book, the black PVC bound "Cox Cookies and Cake", Tart It Up sees Eric in ethereal, pared down almost Delia How to Cook mode with this fresh book of sweet and savoury tarts and pies. It's a departure from the showy patisserie and glamour puds we know Eric for but still manages to be creative and visually rewarding. All manner of dough crusted concoctions are featured from calzone to filo and brioche pies. If you ever thought quiche was restricted to eggs and bacon you'll enjoy the breadth of fillings Eric brings to his tarts such as Curried Chicken to Belgian endive and Parma ham. Strawberry "tart royal" gets a topping of spun sugar and the humble tarte tatin is reworked as a savoury heirloom tomato version to stock your picnic basket. Tucked amongst the pastries are some more obvious favourites like pecan pie and tarte au citron but on the whole Tart It Up is stuffed with creative pastry fillings you'll want to try at home. Page after page of this book shows food I'd genuinely like to eat, this is my favourite of Eric's books so far and the scope of savoury recipes shows he's not just a sugar star.
