It’s Cooking Time: Tarte Provencale and Cucumber Cognac Cocktail

Here comes a weekend recipe, very simple. But wait, we present one cognac cocktail and a tarte. Why? Because we had the cognac drink as an aperitif while preparing the “tarte provencale”.

What you would need for a very simple cognac cocktail, mixologists don’t kill us – but we are not cocktail specialists.

Cucumber Cognac Ale

  • Cognac VS
  • 2 slices of cucumber
  • 2 ice cubes
  • Ginger Ale (we used Canada Dry)

First the ice, then some Cognac VS.

The Tarte Provencale

Put the shortcrust pastry into a form, add mustard – spread it. All very simple. Cut the tomatos, fine slices. Then add Cantal cheese.

Then a little bit of olive oil, over the little master piece. Salt & Pepper and thyme. Done. Now into the oven for about 40 minutes at thermostat 6-7.

Here is the recipe in detail:

  • shortcrust pastry
  • mustard
  • 5 tomatoes
  • 200 grams of rather young Cantal cheese
  • a bit of thyme
  • a splash of Olive oil
  • salt & pepper

You can also add some drak olives on top.

And ready to serve

That’s it so far from our side on this very cloudy sunday.
