Interesting that you chose a vegetable pie as your savory English pie, as the most famous in this genre are meat or fish based pies. I'm always amused by stargazy pie where the sardines -- with heads still on -- are arranged to gaze upwards in a way that would probably not please a modern American diner!

I'll have to take a look at this series. Thanks.

That is a beautiful tart and a fantastic sounding recipe. Glad you were able to meet the author and then pick up the book.

Simona Carini

Thank you Mae for telling me about Stargazy pie: I had not heard of it :)

Simona Carini

I read those four novels fairly quickly, Wendy: they are engaging.

Simona Carini

Thank you Debra :)
It was quite surprising, given that the first novel was published in 1979 (I also learned that a movie of it was made in 1998).

Hi Simona and thanks for the latest Novel Food Roundup! As to your recipe, any dish whose title has Tart and Zucchini in it captures my attention. Can never have too many recipes for that type of dish. It's sad the season for zucchini has ended here on the East Coast and for the rest of this year I'll be resorting to grocery story batons.

Simona Carini

You are welcome, Cathy. I can still get zucchini here and I am eating them as often as I can, but it won't be for much longer, I know. I made the tart with red cabbage and it was quite good: I am experimenting already with winter produce (sigh)
