The Book of Old Tarts is a collection of recipes for those who remember fondly tarts cooked by old aunts, the school cook or local teashop owner, as well as for the keen modern cook looking for something new to entrance and excite. Some old tarts have been plucked from the past and given a completely new look; others are left in their original splendour. Traditional flowers, fruits and berries are combined with the newest ingredients to concoct unique flavours and enticing textures. Each tart will have a potted history or an interesting anecdote and the book will also trace, briefly, the history of tart-making from medieval times and Elizabethan times to the modern day.
