For National Vegetarian Week

divider
4

These pastries are bound to impress and can be topped with a variety of fruits. If using a different brand of pastry, always check the label to check that it is made to a vegan recipe.

Time to prepare: 10 minutes | Time to cook: 25 minutes | Makes 10 tartlets

1 x 500g/generous 1lb block vegan puff pastry (e.g. Jus-Rol)
220g/7¾oz fruits of the forest, frozen
30g/1oz caster sugar

Apricot glaze

2 tbsp apricot jam
1 lemon, juice only
100ml water

Garnish

A little icing sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/360°F/gas mark 4.
  2. Carefully roll out the pastry until it is 1cm thick. Using a scone cutter, approximately 10cm in diameter, cut out the pastry. Place your cut pastry onto a lined baking sheet.
  3. Place a small amount of frozen fruit in the centre of each pastry circle, and sprinkle with a little sugar. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the edges have risen and are golden.
  4. Carefully place on a cooling rack. While the pastries are baking, place all of the glaze ingredients into a saucepan. Heat gently until the apricot jam has melted.
  5. Finally, brush the cooked pastries with the glaze and dust with a little icing sugar.

Chef’s tip: I have made these with many other fruits. Both frozen and fresh have worked well.

The word is woefully over-used, but we think you’ll allow us to describe Bryan Adams as a genuine rock legend. Creating hit after hit since his debut in the early 80s, he has consistently kept his sense of self and his distinctive musical style relevant without compromise. We were absolutely over the moon when Bryan chose to speak with OX, exclusively, ahead of his headlining performance at the Cornbury Festival in July.

It’s a strange thing to be confronted by a famous face whether in the flesh or over Zoom; you never know when you’ll be a little starstruck. Anton du Beke has spent most autumn weekends in my living room for the past eight years but despite that, I had no idea what to expect when we arranged to speak ahead of his ‘Audience With’ at the Wycombe Swan in May.
