Strawberry Mascarpone Tart / Erdbeer Mascarpone Tarte (All images: Condenast)

Most of my family and friends celebrate their birthdays in the summer (so am I), hence the question of what dessert to prepare for such occasions has always been an issue. Something cold but not ice-cream, something sweet but not chocolaty, a sweet that is light, slightly creamy and tastes a bit like summer. Read our top three ‘summer’s sweet cravings’ with berries, grapes and mascarpone ♡♡♡ Ein Großteil meiner Familie und Freunde feiern ihren Geburtstag im Sommer (genau wie ich), deshalb ist die Frage, was für ein Dessert man zu diesem Anlass macht, immer schon ein Thema gewesen. Etwas Kaltes, aber kein Eis, etwas Süßes, aber nicht schokoladig, etwas Süßes, das leicht ist, etwas cremig und den Geschmack von Sommer hat. Lest unsere Top 3 ‘Sommerlicher Süßer Gelüste’ mit Beeren, Trauben und Mascarpone.

For tart shell:

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons cold water

Blend together the ingredients to make tart shell, just like you usually do. Bake it for about 35 mins on 185 degrees.

For filling:

  • 1 kg strawberries trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar (more…)

How do you guys feel about matchy-matchy styles? Personally, it splits my feelings, but not when it comes to the macaron-nailpolish match; you need to have both in every shades of the colour palette, right? I guess I’m not alone and don’t sound much of a cliche, when I say my first purchase as I land in Paris is a always a little box of macaron. Always been and always will. In Paris, the Ladurée chain of pastry shops has been known for its macarons for about 150 years, and what’s more unusual is that in France, McDonald’s sells macarons in their McCafés. It’s both the feeling and the taste which enchants. As for the nailpolish, SCOTCH naturals is a lovely and not least lively label and is also a premier non-toxic, eco friendly nail polish, sold on a very friendly price. Fair match I would say;)

Was denkt ihr über Ton in Ton Style? Ehrlich gesagt spaltet sich meine Meinung, aber nicht wenn es zu Macarons und Nagellack kommt : beides muss man einfach in jeder erdenklichen Farbe haben, oder? (more…)
