Weekend in a French Kitchen (Cafe Boulud) - Sweet Swiss Chard Tourte
For Weekend in a French Kitchen this week, we had to make Sweet Swiss Chard Tourte.
Despite the "sweet" moniker, I fully expected this to be savoury - but it wasn't. If you have trouble imagining chard in a sweet pie, you wouldn't be alone, but this was truly delicious.
Take blanched Swiss chard, honeyed pine nuts and raisins, put them in a sweet dough with an egg and cream filling, and bake - et voila:
You have a rather delicious sweet pie, which defies definition but is really good. This may be my favourite Café Boulud recipe so far.
