For 12 years in Chicago I hosted a post-church Easter brunch, and I loved making special dishes like this for the potluck. I held them at a series of apartments and houses, sometimes borrowed if my place was too small. We would always wear pretty Easter dresses, even though the weather was generally cold and uncooperative. One memorable year we had over 60 people, and it was warm enough to walk over to the beach.
Last year I got the idea for this tart, made it once and photographed it, but it wasn’t quite right. And then asparagus went out of season and it went into the “to do” folder. This recipe could have been part of my failure series, as I had to make this five times to get it right! But it was worth it. And even the failures were pretty tasty. The problem was that I kept forgetting that starchy potatoes need to be treated right, or they make glue.
