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).

Edit 2020:

I can cringe when I look at my photographs from when I started blogging. Ten years down the line I can see where my skills were lacking. But in 2010 I was not using a camera. Or worrying about lighting. Let alone plating! These recipes were done as our evening meal. Plated as we would eat them. And then a quick photograph taken in my kitchen. Nothing fancy, just a cell phone camera. And ten years ago cell phone cameras were not what they are today. Saying that, when I started blogging in 2009 all I was interested in was sharing recipes. I was not at all concerned with any other aspect of my blogging. Now I am shoring up word counts, hence the edit.
