Onion, Olive, Anchovy and Sun-dried Tomato Paste Tart
As anyone who reads these entries regularly will know, I favour recipes that are straightforward and don't involve processes that are too intricate or time-consuming. This 'quick and easy' tart is simple to prepare and satisfying to eat so is something of a staple in the Yapp culinary repertoire. Partner with a full-flavoured Southern French rosé such as Lirac or Costières de Nîmes.
