It was in Syria that I first experienced the romantic pleasure of eating rose petals, which have a tantalising texture and a subtle flavour that is not simply scented. I still buy rose petal jam whenever I can - it is particularly good stirred into yogurt. The filling for the tart is rather like a very light rose-flavoured cheesecake, with delicately crisp petals on top. It is a lovely party piece and a good talking point.
