Three Delicious Dishes Inspired by the Med From Mary Berry's Cook and Share Book
These dishes are perfect to make for family and friends
Provence Tomato And Garlic Pistou Tart
With thin cheesy pastry and juicy roasted tomatoes, this is the perfect tart for sharing on lazy sunny days with a glass of rosé and memories of French holidays! Pistou is a French garlic and basil sauce, similar to Italian pesto. In Provence there is also a traditional soupe au pistou which uses the same flavours.
Mary Berry’s Must-Try Tuscan Chicken
Based on a classic, this is one of our favourites for an easy supper. Use chicken breasts, if you prefer.
Mary Berry’s Glazed French Peach Tart
This dessert is as impressive as it is delicious! The recipe works just as well with nectarines or apricots. It takes a little time to do but is so worth it, and is a dish you will be proud of.
