Recipe For Fennel, Gorgonzola And Walnut Tart

Being up for my own challenge I made a savoury Fennel, Gorgonzola And Walnut Tart. This is a perfect starter or can be served on a tea-table as part of the savoury addition. I however served it with some rooibok (Impala) wors (sausage).

  • 1 large fennel bulb sliced
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • small handful of walnuts
  • 50 g Gorgonzola
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to season
  • 2 cups cream
  • 4 egg yolks beaten
  • 1 fennel frond finely chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 180° Celsius
  • sauté the fennel and the onion until soft
  • season well
  • add the fennel, the onion and the walnuts to your prepared cheese pastry flan tin
  • mix the egg and the cream together and add to the flan tin, make sure you do not overfill the tin
  • scatter the chopped fennel on top
  • bake for 35 minutes, make sure it is set before you take it out of the oven


I do not like the texture of the cooked walnuts and they can be left out of the recipe if you prefer
