Our Well Cool group have once again been working with chefs from Maiyango in advance of them catering for our October business reception at our New Walk premises. We were impressed with what they showed us and thought we’d ask Leicestershire food writer,blogger and friend of Soft Touch Tim Burke (http://riponia.wordpress.com) for feedback on a fruit tart they made.
“Wow. I may not be Mary Berry but I know a good bit of patisserie when I taste one and this is fantastic. No trace of a soggy bottom here but thin, crisp pastry with a layer of apricot jam, an excellent frangipane filling and a top layer of finely prepared pear, slivered almonds and a well-judged dollop of blackberry adding a sharp note. With an apricot glaze added, this is a rich, full-on tart but done with finesse and balance. I’d be happy to get this in a top notch tea-room.”
