Litote Tart


Dear Bakerman and Bakerwoman,

It's a beautiful world, filled with marvels, and this mushroom, fennel, and scallion tart is one of them.  I believe this is the Dodo's first savory recipe-  it isn't that we only subsist on sugar here at the Dodo, it's more that I only want to send you the sweetest things.  I have had the recipe, torn from the magazine, for years, just waiting for the right time and place to make and serve it:  A small group of aesthetes on a late summer afternoon, looking at etchings, and sipping cocktails. 

Find Martha's recipe for it here, and explore what it might mean to invite someone to sit beside you on the divan and look at prints here.

Oh, yes, and while you sit there, on the chesterfield, shoulder to shoulder, play this.  Or this cover, or this one.
