Fresh Raspberry Tart

Fresh Raspberry Tart

It is time once again for my annual raspberry post. You see, early June is my time to contemplate all things raspberry. Why now? What’s stopping me from meditating on the delights of baked and fresh raspberry dishes in, say, April when spring starts, or July when everyone is making juicy fruit crisps? The answer is simple really: raspberries are actually in season now. Not in April or July. Now. Sure you can buy raspberries all year long; and if you’re a commercial grower I’m sure you can extend the season from early spring to late summer or even fall. But if you are a home gardener, this is your raspberry moment.

You can also add a sprinkle of fresh herbs, like basil, marjoram, oregano, chives, or swap out the cheeses for your favorite.

Yesterday was Bastille Day, France’s Independence Day which, like the US is celebrated with parades and red, white and blue flags. That’s where the similarity ends. At least from my vantage point. The parade was much more of a military parade with marching soldiers and imposing tanks flexing their military muscle down the Champs-Elysees rather […]

Every year for the past 5 or 6 years I’ve made a decision to find fresh sour cherries in the Bay Area. It has never happened for me. I’ve either missed it by a week, or no one knows anyone who grows them. So this year, I decided to start early. Very early. And do […]
