To make the ricotta for the filling, place the milk and cream in a heavy-bottomed pan and bring up to 180°F. Add the buttermilk and increase the heat to 203°F
  • 1 1/16 pint of milk
  • 4 1/4 fl oz of double cream
  • 3 1/4 oz of buttermilk

Continue to simmer at this temperature for an hour. After this time, add the salt and strain through a colander, then hang in a muslin cloth placed over a bowl overnight, in order to drain off the excess liquid
  • 1/8 oz of salt
3
For the tarts, cut the feuille pastry into small circles and use to line ten 1 1/4 in tart moulds. Stack the tart moulds one on top of the other so you have a stack of ten tarts

Preheat the oven to 356°F/gas mark 4. Bake the tarts for 12 minutes until golden brown and completely crisp, then set aside to cool

Pick the leaves from all the herbs (these could be kept in the fridge for other dishes), then thoroughly wash the stalks in iced water. Whilst cold, cut the herb stalks as finely as you can with a sharp knife. Set aside in the fridge covered with a damp cloth

  • 1/16 oz of tarragon

  • 1/8 oz of chives
  • 1/4 oz of watercress

When ready to serve, place the ricotta in a piping bag and carefully unmould the tart cases. Pipe the tarts with a thin layer of ricotta, cover with a generous spoonful of the herb mixture and poke in a few flaked almonds. Serve immediately
