Cambridgeshire Live: Parker’s Tavern chef Tristan Welch makes a ‘historic’ tart for the Queen’s Jubilee

If you’re looking for something impressively steeped in history, and delicious, to serve for your guests this Jubilee bank holiday, the Duke of Cambridge Tart is the perfect choice for you. Tristan Welch, head chef at the Parker’s Tavern in Cambridge, shared his reinvented classic with us, and we think you’ll love it.

Parker’s Tavern, on the corner of Parker’s Piece, serves British classics, with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Tristan, originally from Cambridge, has trained with Gary Rhodes, Michel Roux Jr and Gordon Ramsay to name but a few.

Tristan told CambridgeshireLive: “This is the most historical tart in England, it’s the Duke of Cambridge Tart. It’s steeped in history. It predates Bakewell tart it’s that old.

“Originally it’s made with breadcrumbs, candied peel, brown sugar and butter until it’s slightly dry and crumbly. So we’ve taken this recipe and brought it to the modern-day Duke of Cambridge.

“And there you are, that’s the most amazing, most delicious, most historic, Duke of Cambridge Tart!”

We’ve included the recipe for the tart below, along with Tristan’s instructions. We hope you enjoy it. Thanks Tristan!
