HALLO'EEN. ain't nothing but a P thing.

yes, it's a pumpkin thing. and i know i've been banging on about them but now it actually is hallo'een so i can roast to my hearts content: this morning i made a pumpkin, goats cheese and herb tart. the pastry was particularly good because of my new/old ceramic rolling pin. i can't believe i get excited about things like that but the difference in using one of these is immense, especially if you have a marble work top too. this is because it's cold on both sides of the pastry. and i used a couple of egg yolks to bind it too. the tart had a life of it's own. piece by piece, over a period of an hour, it ran out of the shop. the soft and light texture of the egg custard, well peppered, with the floury body of the pumpkin, and the creamyness of the sharp goats cheese, was a perfect menage a trois. the herbs were thyme and parsely, but if i'd had sage, i'd have used that too. with the leftover egg whites i'm going to make meringues.... i'll let you know how it goes...
