Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    For an even more flavourful tart, substitute goat cheese for the cream cheese. Add an extra tablespoon of cream to help thin out the thicker cheese.
  • Tip 2
    To shave asparagus spears, place each spear on a cutting board and shave tip to base with a vegetable peeler until the asparagus is too thin to shave any more. Then turn over and shave two to three more pieces from the other side. The thicker the spears, the better.
