When the weather first starts becoming warm and the summer fruit appears in the supermarkets, I crave a light and slightly sweet fresh fruit tart, with pastry cream filling – crema pasticcera. This is a dessert that Italian bakeries offer during the summer months, when the berries are ripe and the seasonal fruit is perfect to be eaten fresh. I was so eager to bake it, a week or so ago, that I probably started a little early in the season. The nectarines I used weren’t quite sweet and the berries weren’t as ripe as I had hoped. Though, the first bite was still absolutely delicious.
