Greek jam tart (Pasta flora)
Despite the name - Pasta flora - this is not a pasta dish! Pasta flora is actually a well loved Greek jam tart, made with whatever jam you fancy. Greeks aren't big on breakfast, but a slice of this is a favourite mid-morning. Instead of the vanilla, you can use brandy for an authentic Greek touch. Jams that work well for pasta flora? Try apricot, plum, strawberry or fig for starters!
