Fruit Tart

As part of our ongoing partnership with Butter of Europe, we invited Chef Ana Paola de Anda into the Chef’s Roll Test Kitchen to create a recipe highlighting rich, flavorful French butter.  She created a french tart with a vanilla mousseline, vanilla sauce, fresh berries, and a brown butter crumble.

If you try recreating this on your own, post a picture and tag @chefsroll and @butterofeurope! We can’t wait to see how it turns out for you.
