A delicious and elegant tart, Rhubarb and Raspberry 







In Nantua

I will show you how to make this wonderful tart, that I discovered in France, in the "Bugey" region (east)
Rhubarb TartRhubarb Tart

A green area, with multiple lakes and mountains. The "Bugey" is close to the Jurassic mountains and the Alps.

With my niece Clara, we are spending a hot summer afternoon by the lake of Nantua, located on the road between Lyon and Geneva.

The landscape is beautiful here ! A beautiful lake, surrounded by mountains

I remember that When I was a child, my uncle used to fish "Brochet" (Pike fish) in this lake, a fish that local chefs liked to cook, served with a wonderful sauce called after the town : the "Sauce Nantua", made with craw fish flambé'ed with Cognac
Rhubarb Tart


About this recipe

So while spending a few hours by the lake (the Bugey is so cold in winter and so hot in summer !), we found that the best way to cool down our bodies was not to stay by the lake but to find a nice store with Air Conditioned... And so we went to a tea room that had this wonderful rhubarb raspberries tart

This rhubarb tart is not only beautiful, it is also delicious...

The pastry chef who created this tart had the good idea to shape and bake the tart in a square mold, with a mixed rhubarb and raspberries jam

Steps

The Raspberry Rhubarb Confit (Jam)

1. Start with the Raspberry/Rhubarb Confit : Peel and cut into chunks the

Rhubarb

( 13 oz or 380 g) (discard the peeled outer fibers)
Rhubarb TartRhubarb Tart


For the

Raspberry purée

(¾ Cup or 170 g), you can either mix raw fruit (and eventually strain to discard the seeds). Or, you may buy a fruit puree, which is the option that I recommend : not only it's easier, but I also find the fruit taste enhanced. I recommend brands such as SYCOLY or BOIRON.

If you live in the States, you may want to look at baking stores.
If you live in the Los Angeles area, you will find those at Surfas (west LA), Nicole (South Pasadena), or Jane's Cake Supply (La Canada)

Rhubarb Tart

 
2. In a saucepan, cook the

Water

(3 Tablespoons or 40 g), the

Sugar

(¾ Cup or 180 g) and the

Salt

(1 pinch)

3. Add in the

Rhubarb

( 13 oz or 380 g)

4.  Cook while stirring

on medium heat

for

20 minutes



5. Then, Conticini says to continue cooking for

30 minutes

, until the water has evaporated

6.  Once the rhubarb is lightly golden, sweet and has the texture of a jam, add in the

Raspberry purée

(¾ Cup or 170 g) and cook for

2 minutes

on medium heat

7. Bloom the

Gelatin

(2 Gelatin Sheets) in a bowl filled with cold water

8. Add the bloomed gelatin into the warm rhubarb jam

9. Mix with an immersion blender (sometimes called 'hand blender')

10. Wrap airtight

11.  Place in the refrigerator to cool down the jam
Rhubarb TartRhubarb TartRhubarb Tart

The Raspberry & Rhubarb 'Perls'

12.  For the "pearls", cook the

Raspberries

(¾ Cup or 180 g) with the

Water

(3 Tablespoons or 40 g) and the

Sugar

(3 Tablespoons or 40 g)

13. Bloom the

Gelatin

(2.4 Gelatin Sheets) in cold water

14. Once the jam is cooked, add in the

Gelatin

(2.4 Gelatin Sheets) and stir

15. Fill the cavities of the silicone mold "Silikomart Truffles5 Silicone Mold " : this mold allows to get pearls perfectly round

16. To purchase online, see HERE

17.  Let the mold cool down at room temperature and then place in the freezer for at least

2 hours

Rhubarb TartRhubarb TartRhubarb TartRhubarb Tart

18.  For the other pearls, proceed the same way with the

Rhubarb

( 6 oz or 180 g) (to peel and dice), the

Water

(3 Tablespoons or 40 g), the

Sugar

(3 Tablespoons or 40 g) and the

Gelatin

(2.4 Gelatin Sheets)
Rhubarb TartRhubarb Tart

19. For the "orange" pearls, I simply mixed the two jams (raspberry and rhubarb) to obtain an intermediary color

The tart shell

20. Then, it's time to do the Lemon Shortcrust Pastry : The recipe is HERE. In fact, Philippe Conticini recommends to do it the day before, if you can.

21.  let the dough rest (wrapped) in the fridge for at least

2 hours

Rhubarb TartRhubarb Tart

22. Roll out the dough and line a mold

23. The pastry ring that you see here is square : "De Buyer Tart Ring 8″ (20cm)"

24.  You may want to use a round ring instead of a square ring if you feel like it... but I find the square shape more elegant for this kind of tart

25. To purchase online, see HERE

26.  Place in the refrigerator for at least

30 minutes

, and

2 hours

if you can
Rhubarb TartRhubarb TartRhubarb TartRhubarb TartRhubarb Tart

27. Prick the dough with a fork

28.  Bake in preheated oven at 320 °F / 160 °C for

10 minutes

Rhubarb Tart

The Almond Cream

29. Let the

Butter

(2 Tablespoons or 30 g) soften at room temperature for

1 hour



30. Once the butter is soft, beat the

Butter

(2 Tablespoons or 30 g) and the

Sugar

(2 Tablespoons or 30 g) with a spatula

31. Add in the

Egg

(1 Tablespoon or 30 g) and mix

32. Add in the

Almond Flour

(⅓ Cup or 30 g), the

Almond Extract

(A few drops) and mix

33. Spread the almond cream onto the tart shell

34.  Bake for

15 minutes

Rhubarb TartRhubarb Tart

35.  You will notice that the cream "inflates" during baking and then "deflates" after baking
Rhubarb Tart

36.  Take out of the oven and let cool down at room temperature for

30 minutes



37.  Then let the shell sit in the fridge for

1 hour



38. Take the Rhubarb jam out of the fridge, and whisk to soften

39. Pour onto the baked tart shell

40. Spread evenly

Topping

41. Unmold the frozen pearls. Since they are frozen, you should be able to unmold then easily
Rhubarb Tart

42. Lay the pearls on the tart, alternating the colors

43. You may gently push down with a tray to even out the height

44. At first, the pearls are "white" as they are still frozen, but they will start revealing their shiny colors once they slowly thaw
