Jo Pratt's recipe is a real star at social gatherings - it looks impressive and yet couldn't be simpler. Simply top pieces of puff pastry with whatever ingredients you fancy before baking. Any topping just about goes, so you can tailor them to your party theme or guests' preferences and, on top of all that, it's great fun trying out your own flavour combinations.
Topping combination suggestions:
I'd recommend drinking Freixenet Cordon Negro with Mediterranean Tarts. It's clean on the palate and goes well with the Mediterranean flavours . Or, you could try Freixenet Cordon Rosado, to create a fabulous Catalan combination.
