Curd tarts are something I have never seen for sale in the South of England. Many recipes online name them as Yorkshire Curd Tarts but we had them in Lincolnshire too.
Researching for my latest book I found that visitors to Cleethorpes in the nineteenth century often ate the local cheesecake, but I am sure this would have been a curd tart, because cheescakes as we know them now were unheard of in my childhood. For those who have never tasted one follow the link to the history and a traditional recipe.
I think I will have to try making it because I bought one in Yorkshire this week and it did not taste as good as I remember it.
Do you have a remembered food from childhood which you like to taste again?
