Cherry tomato and goat cheese tart tatin

Cherry tomato tart tatin

Summer is almost over here in England, although I’m not sure it ever started this year. Apparently this summer was one of the coldest in the last 30 years in the UK. I know that in Italy everyone is complaining for the very hot weather and probably reading these lines the only thought you have is “lucky you!”, but believe me, you would soon miss the true summer weather! Wearing socks all year round is a real failure!

Anyway, here is a delicious recipe for the last summer sunshine. A simple tart using red and colorful cherry tomatoes. As always we try to cook using seasonal and organic ingredient from our local farm. For this recipe I used a ready to use butter puff pastry, but if you have time you could make it from scratch.


For 4:

300 g cherry tomatoes
a sheet of puff pastry 
50 g goat cheese
2 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
a handful of fresh basil and thyme

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Wash the tomatoes and place them in a heavy-based oven proof frying pan of about 24cm in diameter. Sprinkle with the goat cheese and some basil and thyme leaves. Drizzle with the olive oil.

Roll the pastry on a lightly floured work surface into a shape of about the same dimension as the pan . Cut it into a circular shape and then top the cherry tomatoes with the pastry, tucking in the edges well. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes. Stand for a couple of minutes and then  invert the pan onto a plate. Add extra thyme and basil leaves and serve.
