It was supposed to be a lazy Sunday afternoon. We'd had lunch at one of our favorite London restaurants (to celebrate my first full draft of my manuscript!), followed by a windy wander through Bermondsey, and the plan was to go home and relax / work. But then I was struck with an unrelenting desire to bake a peach tart.
Admittedly, the desire began a couple of days before, when I was watching Come Dine With Me and one of the contestants made a peach and nectarine tart. We didn't have the fruit on hand, so I filed it away for another day, but then we walked past an M&S on the way back from lunch and I decided to do it that day. In a hurry. Without a recipe... which kind of led to a semifail. Let's go through it one part at a time.
