I forget how I found this recipe - it was probably RecipeMuncher or possibly Tastespotting - but I'm so glad that I did. It looked so delicious I knew I had to make it. I made the puff pastry using Najmieh Batmanglij's recipe in Silk Road Cooking. I made the dough on Wednesday. For whatever reason, we didn't eat at home on Wednesday. We didn't eat at home on Thursday, or on Friday, or on Saturday. Fortunately for me, we had our usual Sunday open house and I was able to serve it then. On the one hand, this was a good thing, because more people got to try this delicious recipe. On the other hand, this was not so good, because we had to share!
In all seriousness, this is a really delicious recipe. Arundathi wrote it so well, in a way that made it so easy, that I'm just going to point you to her original here. I didn't make very many changes. Like Arundathi, I made my own puff pastry, but there's no reason you couldn't use store bought if you choose. I ... er... misread the recipe in my rush to get dinner ready, and so I used three tomatoes instead of two. That's okay, though, because tomatoes are important sources of lycopene, which helps fight various forms of cancer in men and women. I used dried tarragon for the herbs, because I had it and because I like it. For tomatoes, I used a mix of differently colored heirloom tomatoes. I chose them because they looked pretty and because they were actually a better price than similarly sized red tomatoes - go figure. Finally, for the cheese, I used a smoked gouda. It matched very well with the tomatoes and got rave reviews - even from my husband, who isn't a big gouda fan. Thanks to Arundathi, for posting the recipe!
