Roasted grape, caramalised onion & goat’s cheese tart on a thyme infused short crust disc.
I’m featuring our roasted grape, caramalised onion & goat’s cheese tart on a thyme infused short crust disc which won us the Peoples Choice award on this week’s episode. We served this delicious canapé (with a little cheesecake bite) at a High Tea where celebrities such as Edith Venter, Anele Mdoda, Jason Greer and The Voice SA finalists selected us as the winning dish of the day.
