As summer is quickly winding to an end (hope that all of you had a great Labor Day weekend), I like to look for recipes that use up the wonderful corn and tomatoes that are so bountiful this time of year. I saw this recipe by Daniel Boulud in Elle Decor magazine a few weeks ago and stopped drooling long enough to tear it out and set it aside to try. I am obsessed with heirlooms tomatoes, so I knew that this was going to be a good one but after reading the accompanying article where he described the tart as “Martha’s Vineyard meets Saint-Tropez” I couldn’t wait to make it. It’s a classic pâte brisée crust filled with a custard that’s half pureed and half whole sautéed fresh corn and onion. The tart is then topped with a mélange of heirloom tomatoes and smoked paprika seasoned breadcrumbs that give the whole thing a really satisfying crunch. I paired the tart with a rosé wine (Chateau L’ermitage is my favorite) that went perfectly with the sweetness of the corn. The whole thing was incredible and a perfect end-ofo-summer recipe, I can’t wait to make it again!
