As predicted before, not only Taky’s came up with another creation for the pleasure of my students!
Dry Figs and Wanuts Tart!
Again this tart is a creation for the pleasure of adults more than that of younger customers.
The top, layered with a very thin layer of syrup, is covered with slices of dry figs, orange peels and slices of dry apricot which have been marinated in dark rum.
Under them a very elegant marzipan contains walnuts and raisins over over an elefant and thin crispy pastry.
a very compex cake as a succession of flavours appear over the palate thanks to the different kinds of fruit included.
To eat slowly with a great English tea!

It is a bit unusual in concept for us Caucasians, but very Japanese in design!
The cake is a beauty and very fulfilling incidentally!
Unusual look, but still sounds delicious…I think I will try making some like this
Yum!! Figs are my favorite…no recipe????
I’m sorry, but that was how far I could push the chef into revealing his secrets!
