Food + Drink: Raw Fruit Tart with Lemon Curd and Cream

Welcome to my first recipe post!  Well it’s officially my first recipe post, as for years I posted recipes under the blog foodonpaper.com.  It was my go-to place to share recipe, talk life, and take awesome photos, as well as eat awesome food!

In 2015 I started to faze out the blog.  My business acquadesignstudio.com.au took off, and well, I was pregnant.  No longer did I have the spare time to cook, style, photograph, edit and write recipes.  When at the start of 2016 I had my baby, Henry, I assumed I’d never blog again.  Enter 2017, and I’m becoming more organised and focused, and ready to blog again.

So I kick off this topic with a very fitting recipe – a raw fruit tart with lemon curd and cream.  Why is it fitting?  Because it was the cake I made for Henry’s first birthday.  I wanted something not overly processed, natural, that incorporated his love of fruit but was still a celebration.  I looked around for my recipes, and settled on a raw nutty base with no refined sugar.  I stumbled upon butterbaking.com (go check it out) and noticed her amazing open tarts, and thought it would be perfect with the raw base.  After adjusting the ingredients, I came up with this tart which was a hit!  Henry loved it, as well as everyone else, and I didn’t feel guilty about giving him cake.  Of course, at his birthday party he had another cake, a more gluttonous cake non the less…
