Pissaladiere and A Guest Post

Pissaladiere

I realized early this month that I never posted a recipe for one of the specialties of the region in France where I grew up, Provence. Pissaladiere, a thin tart topped with onion, anchovies and olives is indeed one of the quintessential dishes of the area.

It only took years and Asha's request to have me guest blog about easy to transport French specialties, to write a guest post for her blog anniversary, to get to it...

Yes, today you will find me and the recipe for this French specialty over here on Asha's blog, Fork Spoon Knife. And please, wish her a happy three year blog anniversary too! That's something to be celebrated!

Looks delicious - any chance of a gluten free version of the dough?

Only you could make a can of anchovies look that gorgeous! This recipe sounds amazingly mouthwatering.

I love Asha's blog, I'm so excited to be able to meet her this Fall!
And I love pissaladiere as well, I remember a warm slice of it in Aix-en-Provence this summer, definitely an extraordinary experience!

Helene, I just wanted to stop in and tell you how much I appreciate your Plate to Pixel. I am devouring it slowly but surely! I have read the first section and churned slowly through the camera settings. I have a new Canon 60D and feel shamed in owning it and touching that "automatic" setting. I understand the individual settings but putting them altogether is my current struggle. ISO is not clearing up in my head yet. I know you don't know me but I feel like I know you, of course, through your blog. Keep my name handy for when you put together another workshop. I read about the one in Santa Fe. BTW, We were in Provence recently. I can't say I noticed the pizzaladiere because I couldn't keep my eyes and mouth off of the brioche!

Bonne journée! Sarah of "Snippets of Thyme"

This looks lovely. I make a similar dish, but since none of my kids will go near anchovies, I leave those out. I'm sure they give it a good 'punch' though. Maybe I'll make up a batch this way...just for me!

Lana @ Never Enough Thyme said...

Pissaladiere is one of my favorites. A brilliant combination of flavors. Going over to check out your guest post right now.

Ruth said...

I've seen recipes for this around and about, and wanted to try it - but an authentic version? I'll have to try this one....

Gen said...

I made this last month. Mine is not an authentic version as I threw some feta on there but it works for me. As always your lighting is sublime.

Alexander said...

Not only does this look delicious, but that last photo is perfection! I'd imagine a glass of champagne would accompany this tart so well!
