Directions

    texture. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a piping bag.
  3. Chop the onions and sauté them in a pan, with olive oil. Add the vinegar and let it reduce slowly
    until you get a chutney consistency (similar to a jam).
  4. For the Sable, work the butter until you get a smooth consistency. Add the goat cheese and mix
    it well in the butter. Whisk in the flour and cool down in the fridge wrapped in cling film. Once
    completely chilled, transfer it to a table with flour and use a rolling pin until you have the dough
    with 2mm thickness.
  5. With a cutter or a knife cut in circular shape with 6cm diameter.
  6. Cook it for 15 minutes at 160C.
  7. To assemble:
    Spread the chutney in the plate with the same diameter of the Sable and cover with the Sable.
  8. Plate the marinated tomatoes on the top, pipe the cheese in the small spaces between the
    tomatoes around the “tart”.
  9. Top it with some mixed leaves and use good olive oil to season the tart.
    Bon appetit!
