Perfect for Spring – Goat’s Cheese & Artichoke Tart

maxwell-williams
Spring is finally here!! Not only does mean beautiful flowers everywhere and warmer weather but food dishes that involve spring produce and fresh herbs! What better way than to prepare a delicious meal and entertain family & friends – be it a weekend brunch or weeknight dinner!

The wonderful people at Maxwell & Williams have provided a great spring recipe to kick start your Spring foodie adventures – and it is delicious.
This dish is perfect as an entree and a great way to start off a meal. It is easily adaptable – for example I used Asparagus instead of Artichoke – and you can either make one large tart for casual grazing or use individual tartlet shells for a more refined setting.
