Back in October our London Cookbook Club met to bring recipes we’d made from Tartine, the eponymous cookbook of the famous San Francisco bakery. We thought it would be fun to try our hand at our very own mini British bake-off.
This month’s meeting was a little smaller than our other gatherings, but our members made up for it by cooking more than one tasty recipe. We sampled savory baked goods, like the zucchini and orange marmalade tea cake (page 106), a perfectly wobbly, creamy quiche filled with fresh spinach (page 40) to a intricate pissaladiere on brioche (page 189). We also had a variety of sweet baked goods; besides the colorful fruit galette, we also enjoyed a rich lemon cream tart (page 49) and a sinful chocolate souffle cake (page 93).
