Isn't this absolutely stunning?
I asked my friend Nadia to do a guest post for us as I have had the pleasure of tasting her cooking and know first hand that she is very talented. She both finds joy and takes pride in the art of creating and presenting beautiful food which she blogs about as well. This gorgeous tart is perfect for an early summer dessert. Bright colours, light textures and flavours- just right. Do let us know how yours turned out and send in pictures! W.P
Nadia here from the blog “for the love of yum.” I’m very excited to share one of my recipes on Kitchen Cultures! I love their twist on traditional dishes and their playful and casual approach to food.
I wanted to share some thoughts about food and cooking with all of you. Cooking is a strong passion of mine. It’s not that I’m particularly talented or anything, I am just drawn to food. Whether it is strolling through Evergreen Brickworks Farmers’ Market or St. Lawrence Market or finding that amazing El Salvadorian hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Toronto that reminds me of a place in Rhode Island (my home state) – I find my happy place in all these discoveries. I’m sure if anyone thought about food as much as I do they would naturally gravitate towards cooking and my most favorite thing – sharing food with others.
There have been many times I’ve had a silly fight with my sister over who borrowed whose top and didn’t put it back in its place. We’ve all been there – the “I’m not speaking to her and crying over something as trivial as a shirt” fight. My husband or mom will step in and say let’s go get something to eat, knowing that getting some food will probably defuse the situation. We both will agree to go, albeit grudgingly, but once the food has arrived one of us will say, “Do you want to try some of my food?” Reluctantly, the other one will try some and after that bite all is soon forgotten and we’ve moved on to what we should order for dessert.
Speaking of dessert, after our little quarrel my sister and I would either order dessert or prepare one together at home. We would make one like the one I wanted to share with all of you: Lime Curd Tart with Mangoes. I love making this dessert. It combines everything I love about food and cooking. The colors, the flavors, the textures – the entire sensory experience is what draws me into cooking desserts or dishes like this. This tart is very therapeutic to make – the different steps of making the curd and whipped cream to arranging the mangoes on top is a very soothing experience.
Also, whoever eats it will most certainly be impressed. Believe me, it’s not at all difficult - just a little work, but nothing hard. The mangoes definitely add something special to this dessert. The golden color of the mangoes and the green speckled lime zest make for an attractive tart. Do try making this. Share it with friends and family and I hope you enjoy the entire process.
