A Friend In Pie: Beatrice Peltre

Béatrice Peltre is adorable. I’ll begin this post on that simple fact. From her clothes to her aprons to her photo props, the woman is the very picture of uncompromising, impeccable adorability (Is that a word? It is now).

When she generously agreed to provide me with a recipe for A Year of Pies, I was over the moon. THE Béatrice Peltre, she of the much-lauded, much-loved La Tartine Gourmande, in my little pie book?! Holy wow! Her spring-centric recipe for Watercress, Appenzeller Cheese and Smoked Salmon Tart is one you’ll prize for many, many moons.

If you aren’t familiar with Béa’s work, you must. go. now to her gorgeous blog. Full of exquisite, evocative images and tempting, gluten-free recipes, it’s no small wonder that La Tartine Gourmade garners so much praise and wins so many awards and “Best Of” categories. Béa’s book of the same name is a serious beauty, too. An all-around accomplished blogger, author, photographer, and food stylist, this woman knows what she’s doing, on so very many levels.

Thank you, Béa, for your contribution to the book. Having your voice and recipe present is such a treasure!
