Star-Shaped Ricotta Pastries

This Modern Sardinian Tart Recipe Boasts Sweet and Savory Additions

— September 1, 2017 — Lifestyle
Although classic Sardinian tarts are known to take about three days to perfect, this Food52 recipe for Sardinian Saffron and Ricotta Tarts provides a time-saving alternative.

The reinvented recipe calls for a mix of sweet and savory ingredients, including fresh ricotta, saffron, sugar, the zest of one lemon, plus some kind of sweetener, like cinnamon, powdered sugar or honey. The base of the pastry calls for just three simple ingredients (flour, lard or olive oil, and warm water) to form the thin, crunchy base that holds the ricotta cheese.

The recipe describes that the bite-sized, star-shaped pastries are roughly the size of "little espresso saucers," making for a perfect appetizer to celebrate a special occasion or a satiating, versatile snack that can be paired with a number of complementary sides and dishes.
Trend Themes
1. Reinvented Traditional Recipes - Opportunities exist for innovating traditional recipes by adding unique ingredients or changing preparation time to better meet modern lifestyles.

Industry Implications

2. Catering and Event Planning - Catering and event planning companies can offer bite-sized, star-shaped pastries as a unique and eye-catching appetizer option for special occasions.
3. Gourmet Food Products - Gourmet food product manufacturers can incorporate the trend towards sweet and savory flavor combinations into their products to attract consumers looking for unique and innovative snacks and meal options.
