Artichoke and Feta tarts – DHSP challenge #7

This is a very quick post about me finally participating in Donna Hay Styling & Photography monthly Challenge. I wanted to take part last month but did not get chance at all. Although do have lottss of pictures to share. 🙂

So some information about the challenge and Dona Hay. Donna Hay is Australia’s leading food editor and best-selling cookbook author. You can read more about her here.

"This is what I had to replicate"

Simone of Junlefrog-cooking has been hosting this DHSP challenge where every month she provides a pictures from Donna Hays magazine and who ever wants to take part has to try to replicate the picture and then post it on their blog with all given credit.  The purpose of this challenge is to help others learn better food photography and styling.

And this challenge seemed to be pretty easy in the beginning but as soon I started the procedure, I realized it’s not that easy. But I managed it somehow. Although it is not looking any closer to the original picture but I tried.

"Not even close to the original"

It looks like I dumped a full bowl of peas salad on one tart..but I made a mistake and I am not ashamed of sharing it. I mean not even proud of it either. hehe

Recipe and Procedure:

  • Serves 4
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 minutes

From magazine: Donna Hay magazine

"Artichokes on puff pastry"

"After and before baking"

And about the tarts, they are DELICIOUS! Absolutely full of flavors and the magic ingredient in this is mint. So strongly recommended not to skip it. Also I used some substitutes like black balsamic vinegar instead of white and Extra virgin olive oil to brush up my pastries in place of egg. But I followed  the recipe as it is and I give it 5 starts. 

It is very quick to make but hard to shoot!!

Thank you guys and have a good weekend!
