Love it

This was a great shop in NYC. The recipes are great!

Don't miss it!

This is, hands-down, one of my favorite cookbooks. And it is so very much more than tarts. I recommend it to people often. When I bought this book, it was quite by accident, because I recieved it through a book club and forgot to send my reply card back. It sat unused on my shelf for a few months, until the day I started flipping through it. Wow! This cookbook is wonderful. The instructions are excellent and detailed, and tell you exactly what things should look like. Their recipe (and instructions) for making a tart crust garnered praise when I did it... and it was only the second time I'd ever made a crust. (The first time, years before, was a flop.) It came out perfectly. Plus, when you read the recipes, you can tell they're good. There's an emphasis on quality ingredients, and it shows through in how the food tastes. I haven't had a single miss yet, and everything is quite easy. Try especially the orange and chocolate chip scones, and the fresh fruit tart with vanilla cream. When I made that one it received rave reviews. Definitely try it, for the tarts, the scones, the sandwiches, the cookies, the breads and all the rest. You won't regret it.

The Art of the Tart

Don't miss out on reading the Intro. Here is an inspirational story of the beginnings of two people who fall in love with what they do--tarts.Here are their tried and true recipes, for which they've made them over and over again. The results are yours for the baking. To do this there are great sections on equipment, technique. Not only for tarts, but salds, soups and muffins, brownies, cookies, etc.I'm particularly impressed with "Roasted Eggplant and Tomato Tart with Basil" "Chocolate-Banana Tart" "Black Plum and Honey Tart".The Summer Berry Scones are knock outs and The Crunchy Dried Cranberry-Chocolate Chip Cookies are killers also.This will be a fun book for the home gourmet to mess around with and discover new cook with your hands baked goods to eat with the fingers food!Well done with great reading thorughout, especially with the fun side bars scattered throughout.

A Keeper!

I am an an obsessive cookbook collector, yet I won't purchase any cookbook that doesn't have recipes that I wouldn't prepare and serve to my friends.I acquired ONCE UPON A TART several weeks ago and have been exceedingly happy with the recipes and the results.Specifically, I have tried the "Provencal Tart with Gruyere and Herbes de Provence", a recipe for which I have searched for years. It is quite delicious. Another recipe that I have made is the "Tomato Chutney with Golden Raisins" which is absolutely wonderful!I have about 10 other recipes marked to try, and I am certain that they will all be as delicious and as well received as the first two!

These guys are real sweet tarts!!!!

For someone who has minimal baking/cooking skills, I found the book user friendly, with beautiful, lush photographs. As well, Mr. Audureau's humor is very charming and disarming allowing you to feel confident in executing these yummy treats. By the end of the book, you too will feel you can open you own little tart shop in the south of France. Enjoyable read!

Baking my way through Once Upon a Tart

I received this book as a gift a few weeks ago and I cannot stop baking!! It is filled with wonderful receipes, photos and information. The receipes are very easy to follow, even for a novice baker like myself, and the results are just outstanding. My friends, family and colleagues are now clamoring for "my tarts" and "my scones". The orange scones with chocolate chips, on page 254 are my favorite. But I am sure I will find others. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves food, even if they do not bake, as the book is fun to read.
