This is truly amazing autumn dish which in a simple, but not banal way, heroes one of the most important ingredient of this season- plums.
For this tart use sweet but firm fruits. Their deep sweetness, strenghten by honey will contrast beautifully with the saltiness of the blue cheese.
This crispy tart tastes the best with the glass of cool white wine. Take your time and enjoy this autumn moment.
