This truly practical cookbook is one of the "Best Kept Series" and features recipes contributed by Women's Institute members, renowned for their traditional home cooking. Generally speaking, WI members have learned to cook from their mothers and grandmothers, from family friends and each other. They don't have to rediscover the British tradition of cooking because they never lost touch with it in the first place. This volume features a huge range of recipes for tarts. There are small, savoury tarts for appetisers, robust ones for a main course, and dessert tarts for a triumphant finale to a meal. There are classic tarts and quiches from the UK, Europe and America - quiche Lorraine, pissaladiere, pecan pie, Bakewell tart - and modern tarts, both savoury and sweet - red onion, goat's cheese galette and mocha pie with Bailey's. Nervous pastry makers can take heart because tips for producing perfect flaky pastry are included.
