Asparagus and Chive Tart

Serves: 6


  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed in refrigerator overnight
  • All-purpose flour, for rolling out pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup freshly grated fontina
  • 2 tbsp. freshly chopped chives
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp. heavy cream
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1 lb. asparagus, washed and trimmed
  • Sea salt, for finishing


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line half sheet pan with parchment paper. Roll out pastry on a lightly floured surface to make a 10-inch by 16-inch rectangle.
  2. Using a sharp paring knife, gently score a ¾-inch border, carefully cutting halfway through the pastry. Using a fork, gently prick center area all over, every 1 inch, then brush border lightly with egg wash and bake 10 minutes.  Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool slightly.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine Parmesan, fontina, chives, eggs, heavy cream, and pepper. Spread cheese mixture evenly across the center of puff pastry, leaving the ¾-inch border uncovered.  Evenly arrange asparagus across the center of pastry, avoiding the border.
  4. Lightly drizzle asparagus with olive oil and bake until pastry is golden brown and asparagus is fork-tender, 25 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
