In food photography, what do you think it’s the most important thing? That the food looks appetizing. There is no other priority. You can make a beautiful photo of a cake, but nobody eats esthetic.

How does cooking go for you? Very well! I'm fascinated by cooking and my only problem is that I don’t have a lot of time. I work very intensely some months and on those times, I can’t humanly experiment or be creative. Even though we eat tasty food at home , I collect cooking books and dream of the time to try new recipes. My daughter Marianne has been vegetarian almost all of her life and now at home we all have stopped eating meat three times a week, for health and for the environment. Now I’m at the search of delicious vegetarian recipes. What troubles me the most is the pastry, but I’m facing my fears little by little, inspired by my students, they are fantastic.

custard (Makes about 1 cup =) 1 cup whole milk 3 egg yolks ¼ cup sugar 2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch (cornflour) 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract 2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature, cut into small pieces

You will also need * Whipped cream prepared with a cup of heavy cream, three tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Once It’s ready keep in the refrigerator until it’s ready ready to use. * Seasonal fruits, in this case, strawberries, kiwis and some peaches in syrup to give them color. The fruits are cut into slices not too thin when they are used.

For the crust, preheat the oven to 200 º C (400 º F). Sift the flour and icing sugar and add cold butter cut into small pieces. With a knife cut the butter in two and stirrup it into the flour to form a granulate. Add the egg yolk and a tablespoon of cold water and mix without kneading. If we see that we need liquid, add a tablespoon of ice water. Form a dough bun and wrap in plastic wrap, and let it rest in the refrigerator for an hour. Divide dough into 12 equal balls and put into Tart molds. With the tip of your thumb, go stretching the dough to the edges to cover the entire pan. pinch on the bottom of the dough so that it will not rise during baking. Place the molds on a baking sheet, and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until it’s lightly brown. Remove from oven and let it cool for 10 minutes on wire rack before unmolding. Before use, cool them completely. For the pastry cream, Place milk in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. In a heatproof bowl, Place the egg yolks, sugar and yolks. Mix until it’s well blended, do this until the preparation is smooth. Whisking constantly, slowly add the yolk mixture to about four tablespoons of milk and integrate them well. Then, gradually integrate this mixture to the milk that has been left in the saucepan and bring back to the fire. With a whisk, beat vigorously until it’s boiling, then, continue beating it while it’s on the fire for another minute. Remove. Add the vanilla extract and let rest for a few minutes. Then add the butter in pieces and mix until fully integrated. The cream will be soft and silky us. Transfer the cream to a clean bowl and cover with clingfilm, trying to touch the cream, to prevent crusting. Chill thoroughly before using. Assembling the tarts Place pastry cream into each tart (the amount is to taste). Inside the edges of the tart add the slices of fruit interspersed, so that they look like a fan. With curly pastry bag and tip, in the middle of the top of the fruit and custard, garnish with whipped cream. Add the finishing touch as you like. In this case, with cherries and mint leaves.
