Nothing finer for dinner than a savory tart made with seasonal vegetables. Featured here are three recipes from The Complete Kitchen Garden book: Roasted Vegetable, Carrot Tarragon and Caramelized Leek. Thank you to the Garden Center Association of Greater Kansas City and Powell Gardens for inviting me to Kansas City to teach a cookery class. And to the volunteers who baked tarts to share. Nice work
