Today I received a sample of Glasshouse Tomatoes from Perfection Fresh. How gorgeous are these tomatoes! I was inspired to make a tart with buffalo mozzarella and top it with Glasshouse Tomatoes, freshly sliced and with some fresh spinach. This would make a great meal for any picnic. You could be a little theatrical and slice the tomatoes and add the spinach before serving. Then drizzle with a little olive oil and cracked pepper.

2 cups of plain flour
2 teaspoons of salt
150 grams of unsalted butter at room temperature
11/2 tablespoons of iced water
3 free range eggs
1/2 cup of cream
1 Buffalo Mozzarella
Salt and pepper to taste
1 punnet of Perfection Fresh glasshouse tomatoes
1 cup of fresh spinach.
To make the pastry, sift the flour and salt into a large bowl, add the butter and rub into the flour, using your fingertips, until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Sprinkle with 1½ tablespoons of cold water and mix using a round-bladed knife. With your hands, gather together into a firm but pliable dough, handling as little as possible. Wrap the pastry in plastic wrap and chill for 20 minutes.
In a bowl place the three eggs and cream and whisk until well combined. Then add salt and pepper to taste.
