One thought on “Pecorino and Thyme Onion tart

  1. I would just like to thank you again for the wonderful time we send with you. We all loved the food as usual. Because I also in the foodie game I though I will give a bit of feedback on the salmon and artichoke dish. The artichoke filling was absolutely delicious but the smoked salmon trout taste overpowered the delicate artichoke taste. If the salmon is not so generous it might be not so overpowering. I often wish I can get constructive feedback so please don’t see this as critsism but just my thoughts . Regards till we see you again
