Patisserie & Confiserie lesson 7: Leek quiche and Bakewell tart


Sorry I have been so long but I was in New York in the middle of the hurricane. No joke, it is true, stuck in a hotel room for 2 days and with no transport another day. A shame really, only 2 good half days of 5, oh well, at least we came back safe and sound.

Today it was the 7th lesson of my pastry course. I was not so concentrated today, I even burnt myself quite badly. I still managed to bake a quiche and a Bakewell tart all by myself. As I am tired of a busy day, I will post the pictures straight away:

Bye, bye quiche, I couldn't keep you!!! I 

Today we could buy some of it, so I took home half my Bakewell tart and half of somebody's quiche, I don't know who! My mother in law was well chuffed with the dessert and some quiche for her lunch tomorrow! I thought the tart was ok, it would have been better with homemade jam instead of ordinary ready made jam, but overall I liked the flavours.

I am going to watch Jamie 15 minutes meals and off to bed. I have a charity dinner tomorrow and lots of cooking. I am going to inaugurate my Kitchen Aid!!! I forgot to tell you I just bought one. Well chuffed.

Good night,
