Pear, almond and amaretto tart with stem ginger mascarpone cream

1st November 2012

Ahead of her live Red Chat with Red Online, Friday 2nd November at 1pm, Lorraine has shared a recipe for a fabulous French inspired tart with Red magazine - this sweet treat is the perfect autumn dessert!

"I have had my eye on this little tart for some time. I first consumed a tart like this in all its ambrosial splendour in a supermarket cafe in France. Determined to recreate one like it at home, I set about trying to make it from memory. Being challenged many times over to find pears in the peak of their ripeness, a can of their tinned counterparts came to the rescue with very pleasing results!"
