Strawberry Rhubarb Tart - Bon Appetit April 1985

How can I get a copy of this recipe or that issue of the magazine? I made that very easy and gorgeous dessert back in the 1980's not long after the issue came out but can't locate it on line. The closest I've managed was to narrow down the fruit and which issue it was in.

It had a spiral of phyllo that really added to the eye appeal.

  1. Sounds intriguing indeed. I'm sure you've seen this already, but here's a link to get you started--apparently Helen Fletcher still runs her business "Truffles" in St. Louis.

    1. re: The Dairy Queen about this recipe published in a B.A. cookbook the following year?

        That's it! Thanks so much. :)

        I was able to locate a copy of that issue of the magazine on but it won't be here for a couple of weeks.

        What I clearly remember is that the tart was very good for not a lot of effort and it looked beautiful as well.

          Sounds delicious! If you're feeling so inclined, perhaps come back and paraphrase the recipe for us? I love everything rhubarb!

      1. I thought your post might be about this new variety of rhubarb I'm seeing in our farmers markets for the first time this year. Its called "strawberry rhubarb." One farmer told me that some people think it's less tart but he didn't think so.

        I bought some and am going to make some sauce from it. (If it's not tart, what's the point?)
