Caramelized Garlic Tart

savory tart loaded with enough garlic to ward off the most stubborn of vampires. But no worries, caramelized garlic brings out its natural sweetness. This delicious recipe from the South of France is a great choice for a party, light lunch or a picnic.

Chicken, Bacon and Leek Pie

is hard to pass this combination. Creamy chicken with leeks perked with pancetta. By all means one of my favorites. For an extra twist sprinkle Parmesan on top. A sure winner.

Serve it with a green salad

Cheddar and Fresh Herbs Custard

A savory custard that can be served any way you like it, with fruits for an impromtu brunch, lunch with a salad and cold meats or as a side dish to an elegant dinner.

Potato Tart

A typical dish from the Trentino Alto Adige region in Italy. It can be served alongside salads, grilled meats, fish and veggies. It is easy to make and the leftover slices can be reheated perfectly. In fact, some swear that a day old torte tastes even better.

Leek and Bacon Quiche

In France this dish is known as Quiche aux Poireaux avec Lardons.

Leek is a vegetable related to the onion and garlic. Its edible portions are the white onion base and the green stalks. The white onion-like layers form around a core. I prefer to use young leeks. Otherwise discard the outer leaves; you can use them for soups.
