Celebrate St David’s Day with this delicious Tart. Flakey golden pastry, filled with a delicious combination of Welsh leeks, Parma Ham, and goat’s cheese.
Simply blind bake the pastry for 15 minutes, before brushing over egg and returning to the oven.
Meanwhile, gently fry the leeks until softened, and combine the egg, cream, wine and seasoning, before adding to the pastry. Scatter the Parma Ham, leeks and goats cheese over the mixture, and bake for a further 30 minutes for a delicious, golden brown tart.
Parma Ham is a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) product and is 100% natural. The drying process that Parma Ham goes through creates a ham that is very low in fat content, with many mineral salts, vitamins, antioxidants and easily digestible proteins. This means that Parma Ham is truly a food for everyone.
Prosciutto di Parma is produced in the hills surrounding the Italian town of Parma.
The unique taste of Parma Ham is dependent on the traditional production process passed down from Roman times, carefully controlled by the Consorzio del Prosciutto di Parma. Only hams that have passed stringent curing regulations approved by the EU can be awarded the stamp of the Ducal crown – a five pointed coronet logo with PARMA in the centre which is branded onto the ham’s skin. The Ducal Crown is now a certification trademark.
