Scrumptious! A marvelous tart, yummy.



A Canadian Foodie

All I can say is that the photo of the tart needs to be MUCH BIGGER. It is GORGEOUS. I grow so many heirloom tomatoes and get so excited as they ripen. Tomatoes are my favourite food in the entire world. I LOVE THEM. This tart is a work of ART!


I love the way this looks -- beautiful! And I'm sure tastes delicious! Mmm!

Simona Carini

Thanks, Rosa.

OK, Valerie, I made the photo of the tart bigger ;) My husband agrees with you: he's publicly declared that tomatoes are his favorite food in the world, which is why this time of the year I buy large quantities. Thanks for the kind words: it's a fun tart to make, because it looks different every time. Congratulations on having your own tomatoes! I am a bit envious. Our coastal climate is not good for tomatoes, as there is not enough sun during the summer.

Thanks, Paz. It is simple and flavorful.


Those tomatoes are amazing looking. They're like jewels!

And the tart(???) with homemade colby looks completely brilliant. I'll be right over.

I love your use of the word canvas to describe the puff pastry--those tomatoes look so beautiful, painted on in bright strokes of rich red!


As Molly said, those are beautiful strokes of red tomatoes.

That you made this tart fours times in last three weeks is a testament to how good it is.

Thank you, Simona, for your super-summery WHB recipe!


(Just tried leaving a comment, but I don't think it took.)

As Molly said, the red of those tomatoes is like pigment.

That you have made this tart four times in three weeks is a testament to just how good it is, and how skillful and patient you are with pastry.

Thanks, Simona, for a great contribution to WHB. The round-up will be up tomorrow night.

Simona Carini

Hi Elizabeth. Thanks for the kind words. I really like this variety of tomatoes. I had them last year for the first time and I was excited to find them again. I made more Colby last week and can't wait to be able to use it on the tart. And of course, you are welcome to come by any time ;)

Hi Molly. That's really how I feel and it's very exciting. I know you understand the feeling. If I were a painter I would like to have those colors on my palette.

You are welcome, Susan. I think the tart is a nice celebration of summer and the tomato crop.

Rachel @ The Crispy Cook

You had my attention with tomatoes and sealed the deal with homemade Colby. Looks so tasty!

Simona Carini

Thanks, Rachel. I ran out of my homemade Colby to make these tarts, so now I need to try using other cheeses, while my most recent Colby ages in the cheese fridge.
