A beautiful tart you can serve for company. Easy and tasty; the goat cheese base is more versatile than a quiche as it is still yummy at room temperature.

This was fantastic - tasted like something you'd buy at an expensive cafe. The polenta/cornmeal in the base gave it a fabulous texture and flavour.
