Vive la Tarte!

This past Wednesday morning on the Today Show, I demonstrated a variety of tart recipes from the Vive La Tarte story in the June issue of Martha Stewart Living on newsstands Monday, May 17th.  This mouth-watering story teaches the basics of what you need to know to create a French-style tart with relative simplicity.  By filling a single flaky crust with plump berries, juicy fruits, or earthy nuts at the peak of ripeness, you can enjoy a most glorious dessert.  And be sure to check out the graceful “plates” that frame our tarts in the magazine.  They were created by Miyuki Sakai, using a straight-stitch sewing machine and a palette of 200-plus shades of thread.  Amazing!
