Silent Sunday: Making an apricot tart with Kate Hill in The Kitchen at Camont

You can find the recipe for Kate’s easy French all-butter pastry over at The Kitchen at Camont’s blog. You can read more about the ingredients on this post about our weekend with Tim and Kate.

Disclosure: I am a guest of Kate Hill and Tim Clinch at Camont this weekend for their Natural Light Natural Food Photography workshop. I was not required to post about this workshop and am not being compensated for doing so. All opinions (and photos, believe it or not!!!) are 100% my own.

    The photographs on this post are a cut above…. beautiful. Whatever you were taught, it showed up immediately. The food looked to be sprinkled with gold dust.
