|Christine McFadden's new book Flour: A Comprehensive Guide is a tour de force, comprehensively covering flours of every kind, from almond to yam. Among the recipes for pea flour, fava bean flour and quinoa flour is this excellent plum and frangipane tart made with "the most beautiful melt-in-the-mouth" yellow pea flour pastry.|
Yellow pea flour makes the most beautiful melt-in-the-mouth pastry. It's gluten-free and wonderful to work with. Crimson plums set off the rich yellow colour. The idea for the filling came from my food writer friend Lesley Mackley, who does a lovely version with pears instead of plums.
