Bar Basso opening night block party

"To celebrate the first day of our show we visited Bar Basso for a few Negroni Sbagliatos. These were said to have been invented (by mistake) at this exact drinking hole in the early '70s. We were joined by hundreds of others to celebrate the first day of Salone, including artist Lee Broom, who drove his industrial delivery van all the way from East London to Milano to host a block party and lighting installation just outside the bar."

Here, Engelbrecht shares a glimpse of her time spent in Milan.

Thyme adds an intriguing savoury note to this burnt-butter tart, and poaching the pears in wine adds a further savoury element. Start this tart a day ahead to rest the pastry, and serve it with a dollop or two of creme fraiche.
