More Tuesdays with Dorie
In Baking Chez Moi, this recipe is for a Pink Grapefruit Tart with Campari included in the filling. That however was rather unappealing to bitter-hating K. To be honest, lemon and lime aside, she really does not care for citrus, so subbing lovely to look at blood orange seemed our best option.
This was a recipe of many steps, so we made the tart over several days. On day one, K made the crust. That out of the way, next up was the lemon almond cream, followed by my favorite part, a blood orange cremeux. None of the steps were particularly complicated, but they include significant chilling time, so I'd suggest not trying to make this one the day of a party.
The verdict: Blood oranges instead of pink grapefruit and no Campari meant that we ended up with a different tasting final product. That said, although I agree with K that if we make it again, we'd try lime, we both enjoyed this one. Plus, pretty never hurts.
