Tarte Paysanne has a rich, sunny flavour. Make it with the best tomatoes you can find.


For the pastry

  • 200 g flour
  • 75 g butter, cut into small pieces
  • 25


To make the pastry, put the flour in a bowl, add the butter and lard, and rub together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Using a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion, combine the egg with the mix until a pastry ball forms. Turn out on a lightly floured surface and quickly knead until even and smooth, then wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
