1. Put flour and salt in a bowl. (I mix it up with a balloon whisk)

2. Chop the lard and butter up and put into bowl. Use a blunt knife to cut the fats up even smaller.

3. Use your fingers and rub the front and fats into each other to create breadcrumbs.

4. Add cold water slowly, mixing with a fork, then our hand until it is a smooth ball of dough. It should hold together easily but not be sticky.

5. Roll out the dough into a 1/8 inch (3mm) thick round. Place carefully on a greased plate. Neaten the edges. Prick the bottoms with a fork several times.

6. Spread the tart with your favorite jam of choice within 1/4 inch ( 1 cm) of the edge. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 450F degrees (230-250C).

She also helps companies and schools educate around—and create a culture and environment that truly supports healthy eating.

Inspiring children to cook and expand there horizons on food is very important. She shares this message through virtual coaching and video courses, by speaking at corporations, schools, and events, and through her recently-released video courses. Tamzin is found most often at The Pinny and Trowel Cooking School, which she opened in early 2020, it is located in Austin TX.
