Tarte Coeur, Cucumber, Basil and Strawberry Tart by Gontran Cherrier for Mamans
Mothers Day does not take place at the same time in all countries around the world.
In France in 2012, it will be June 3.
To celebrate mothers, Gontran Cherrier created a 'Tarte Coeur'.
Here is how Gontran Cherrier describes it:
"For Mothers Day, take risks with the cake that creates an affectionate note composed around the freshness of cucumber, the bite and spicy notes of fresh basil without forgetting the sugary sweet of strawberries...An audacious and lively pairing which plays on the contrast between soft supple and sweet textures on the palate. A 'tarte coeur' with of course a sugary crust, a cream cheese filling, strawberries, basil, and cucumber."
Not sure it would be my Mother's cup of tea.
