Savoury Tart with Quince & Pérail Cheese, Hazelnut Mustard

Savoury Tart with Quince & Pérail Cheese, Hazelnut Mustard

Thursday February 11th, 2016 0 By Marion

I found this recipe on the Gourmandises sans Frontières Blog. I just changed the tart dough, using my super quick & versatile oil tart dough, an old Tupperware recipe that is just perfect for any tart. I chose for this recipe the cumin & chickpea flour version, but any type of savoury tart dough will actually work. I also added on the tart crust a delicicous hazelnut Mustard purchased last week-end in the Maille shop in Dijon.


  • 2 quinces
  • 1 onion
  • 1 pérail cheese (a smooth & milky sheep cheese, around 100/120 g)
  • 2 eggs
  • 20 cl liquid cream
  • 2 tablespoons Hazelnut Mustard, or whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • Thyme, rosemary
  • Salt & Pepper

Peel & cut the quinces into large cubes. Peel and dice the onion. Fry in a pan, add quince, thyme and rosemary plus 2 tablespoons water. Season to taste and cook for about 10 minutes.

In a bowl, mix the eggs with the cream. Season to taste.

Preheat the oven at 200°C. Roll the tart dough (reminder, my recipe is here – click) and pace in your tart mould. Prebake for about 10 minutes. Spread the mustard on the tart crust.

Place the onion/quince mix on the tart crust. Add the cheese cut into pieces. Cover with the egg/cream mixture. Sprinkle with some sesame seeds and bake for 30 minutes (15 minutes at 200°C then 15 minutes at 180°C).

Serve warm with a green salad seasoned with cider vinegar and honey.
