My favourite YouTuber, Max Miller, has been back to the orchard for one of the main ingredients of the featured dish in this week’s instalment of his Tasting History channel.
The recipe in question is a sixteenth century apple and cheese tart, made with equal amounts of those two ingredients, plus eggs and spices, blended together and baked in a pastry crust.
Sounds like a quiche, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, Max concludes that it basically tastes like a quiche. Sorry for the spoiler. But you should definitely watch the episode anyway, for Max’s potted history of the apple pie.
