Super Duper Strawberry Tart

WoW.. I know I say this a lot, but you have to admit this looks awesome! This is a
Strawberry Yogurt Mascarpone Tart and it is from Meetas blog What's For Lunch, Honey?
You will find the recipe as well as all the how to's. Just Fabulous.

I didn't know what a Mascarpone Tart was so good ole' Wikipedia came to my rescue. It's
"a triple-cream cheese made from crème fraîche, denatured with tartaric acid.[1] Sometimes buttermilk is added as well, depending on the brand. After denaturation, whey is removed without pressing or aging.[2] One can manufacture mascarpone by using cream, tartaric or citric acid, or even lemon juice.[3]

Mascarpone is milky-white in color and is easily spread. When fresh, it smells like milk and cream. It is used in various dishes of the Lombardy region of Italy, where it is a specialty. It is a main ingredient of tiramisu. It is sometimes used instead of butter or Parmesan cheese to thicken and enrich risotto."
Yum, can't wait to try it!
