If there is no tradition of home ovens or Sunday roasts then I'm guessing the butchery tradition will follow a very different track. 

 

Indeed. Those are very alien concepts.

Chicken pot pie.  The good news is that it used up a bunch of leftovers.  Tasted better than it looked.

Tonight, I offer you a Tomato-Lemon Tart from the Sept 2017 Bon Appétit. Puff pastry gets brushed with garlic-olive oil, then topped with thin slices of lemon, torn basil, sliced heirloom tomatoes, sea salt, pepper and olive oil.

The lemon slices (I cut them as thin as I could with a mandoline, as per the recipe) are overwhelmingly bitter and make this inedible.  

Maybe it would work better with Meyer lemons, but I'm not wasting 3 more lovely heirloom tomatoes to find out xD.

 

Embarrassingly, I gave a visiting neighbor a few slices to take home BEFORE I'd actually tasted it.  I had to text her to tell her not to eat it but she'd already tried it :$.

Lesson learned!

Could you pick the lemons off? The rest of it looks like it would be very good. Sad about those end of season tomatoes. They are like gold this time of year.

 

Edit: What was I thinking? Good tomatoes are like culinary gold any time you can get your hands on them!

The lemon slices were under the tomatoes and they were really paper thin so it would be a pain to get them out.

We should have decent tomatoes for another couple of months here but the heirloom varieties are expensive and I hate to waste them.
