Rustic Mushroom Tart + Carla Hall Cookbook Giveaway

Rustic Mushroom Tart / Carla Hall Cookbook Giveaway - www.perrysplate.com

Have you ever heard of Carla Hall? I hadn’t until I devoured her cookbook this week. She was on Top Chef and she’s a co-host on The Chew. I’ve seen neither show, but I feel like we’re tight.

Sharing awesome food tends to do that.

Her cookbook, Cooking with Love: Comfort Food that Hugs You is officially my latest favorite cookbook, which is a total surprise to me because I still roll my eyes at the term “comfort food.”

Rustic Mushroom Tart / Carla Hall Cookbook Giveaway - www.perrysplate.com

Comforting? Yes, but in a way that won’t make you regret it later. Her recipes have a fresh twist and a sprinkle of Southern charm.

We tried her Rustic Mushroom Tart (recipe below!) and her Mixed Greens and Pan-Roasted Butternut Squash Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette for dinner one night. Hello, fall menu!

Wow. Both fantastic. My 5-year-old, the self-proclaimed mushroom-hater, ate all of her tart. Mushrooms included. My kids aren’t fans of butternut squash in cube form, but they eagerly ate the rest of the salad.

I’m sure the apple cider vinaigrette helped a lot. I think they might eat lawn clippings covered in that dressing.

We also tried her Buffalo Wing Burgers (wing sauce-flavored turkey burgers) with Spicy Mayo and Celery and Blue Cheese Slaw (with goat cheese because we do NOT heart blue cheese). We had them bunless with a side of sweet potato fries. Loved it!

Another thing I love about her book are the personal stories she shares and the catering tips. Carla Hall also runs (ran?) a catering company, and I think it was a brilliant idea to share her catering wisdom in her book.

Want a copy? Of course you do. Go on down and see the details of the giveaway (easy and painless, as always) and grab that tart recipe while I dive back into this book and make my menu plans for the next few weeks!

Rustic Mushroom Tart

Yield: Serves 4-5

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: About 45 minutes

Ingredients:

3/4 cup whole milk ricotta
1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan-Reggiano cheese
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon heat-safe oil
3/4 pound mixed mushrooms, about 4 cups (I just used regular brown mushrooms)
1 medium leek (white and pale green parts only), trimmed, cut in half lengthwise, then into thin half-moos, and thoroughly rinsed)
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Kosher salt
1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth)
Dough for one pie crust (single-layer)
1/2 lemon
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, stir together the ricotta, goat cheese, Parmesan, rosemary, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until well mixed.

In a large skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium-high heat until the butter melts. Add the mushrooms, leek, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushroom juices release and evaporate and the mushrooms start to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the wine (or stock), bring to a boil, and simmer until it evaporates. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

On a large sheet of parchment paper, roll the dough into a 12-inch round. Slide the parchment paper with the dough on it onto a half sheet pan.

Spread the ricotta mixture evenly over the dough, leaving a 2-inch border. Spoon the mushrooms in an even layer over the cheese. Fold the border of the dough over the mushrooms, pleating the dough every 2 inches. Immediately transfer to the oven.

Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 25 minutes. Grate the lemon zest directly over the mushroom filling and rizzle with a little olive oil. Cut tart into wedges and serve immediately.

    Heidi Babi — November 12, 2012 @ 7:55 am

    I grew up eating traditional Swiss and European food, so the food that “hugs” me the most (not just hanging around my hips!) is anything that involves the traditional dumplings (spaezle), onions, and roesti (shredded potatoes), and wurst. And the cheese. Oh… the cheese. That is my greatest happiness in food!

    Julia {The Roasted Root} — November 12, 2012 @ 8:05 am

    You sold me on the cookbook – if I can make mounds of comfort food that won’t make me feel like I’m digesting a rock, I’m all about trying out Carla’s recipes! The tart looks awesome and I could see how even the mushroom-averse would eagerly snap it up!

    gwen — November 12, 2012 @ 8:06 am

    Mmm, this looks great. Buffalo Wing Burgers with Spicy Mayo and Celery and Blue Cheese Slaw sound delish, too. (I do love blue cheese!)

    My food that hugs me: My dad’s homemade biscuits and sausage gravy. He wakes up super-early on Saturday mornings to make them from scratch for my brother and me when we’re home. Plus they’re better than any restaurant version I’ve ever tried!

    Kathy — November 12, 2012 @ 8:14 am

    Homemade Mac and cheese is my favorite hug food :)

    The Mom Chef ~ Taking on Magazines One Recipe at a Time — November 12, 2012 @ 8:39 am

    Spaghetti alla carbonara is the whole family’s comfort go-to. But if we’ve had it too often (and yes, that can happen), we fall back on shepherd’s pie the most.

    The cookbook looks fantastic. Thanks for the review and the giveaway.

    Carla Hall — November 12, 2012 @ 8:51 am

    Thanks Natalie. What a raving review. The proof is always in the “kid’s perspective”. I think we can change the way people see comfort food. No matter where you’re from, if the food is hugging you, it’s COMFORT food.

    Michele aka Goat Girl — November 12, 2012 @ 9:15 am

    I love Carla and had no idea she had a cookbook! The food that “hugs” me being half Mexican is corn tortilla quesadillas with any leftovers; pinto beans, refried beans, avocado, fresh roasted chiles, chicken, beef, etc. I eat them at least 1-3 times a week!

    Paige B. — November 12, 2012 @ 9:39 am

    Eileen — November 12, 2012 @ 9:56 am

    When I was a child, my grandmother made soup on Saturday mornings in the winter…we had it for dinner each Saturday. So any home made soup makes me feel loved. BTW, Carla is AMAZING!

    What an amazing-sounding cookbook. And this tart looks outstanding, Natalie! I love the question you asked – homemade egg noodles, specifically with homemade chicken and noodles “hugs” me. Also homemade cinnamon rolls and my mom’s spaghetti.

    Alina — November 12, 2012 @ 11:55 am

    Most food ‘hugs’ my thighs, but the recipes I’d love to hug right back are my mom’s cream of broccoli potato soup (cheesy potato soup but it’s chunky and has a lot more vegetables in it) and her hot roll mix rolls. So good.

  94. 92

    Sharon Cirillo — November 14, 2012 @ 7:58 pm

    My favorite rainy day comfort food is grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup. By the way, Carla did a tomato soup with grilled cheese croutons on The Chew and it looked delicious. Might be in this cookbook.

    Second favorite comfort food would have to be chicken and dumplings – dumplings nice and fluffy on top of the thickened soup. Yum.

    Why are comfort foods (at least for me) all cold weather foods? Especially since I live in southwest Florida and don’t have a lot of cold weather to deal with….

    I’m a dessert lover, and always will be, but recently have begun to experiment with more veggies, and love love LOVE Ants on a Log…aka peanut butter with raisins mixed in to dip my celery in! That is my love right now! And no, I’m not a five year old :)

    A good warm soup with a side of bread hugs me. Especially on a cold late fall day like this one.

    What food really “hugs” me is fresh, hot of the grill, homemade flour tortillas with melted butter. My Grandmother would get up every morning and make a batch for homemade burrito lunches to take with us. Love it!!

    A grilled cheese sandwich (with mixed cheeses, tomato, and basil) and tomato basil soup is a good fall back.

    Any of the dishes that either of my grannies used to make for us on a regular basis. Soooo not good for your health in general, but definitely wonderful for your soul! ;)

    I love a good German meal or something with chocolate! Something warm and creamy and of course NOT fat free. :D

    Chicken and dumplings. My grandmother always made it for me on when I would go and visit her. She’s been gone a few years now, but I always think of her when I eat them. My ultimate comfort food.

    Southern food! I love being from the South, and the food here is my favorite. Hands down.

    This looks like a great cookbook! I think homemade soup with homemade bread hugs me, especially my Mom’s turkey and veggie soup.

    Pizza baked in a brick oven…I’d feel extra love if I were in Italy eating it.
