I love rhubarb! So every year I bake a rhubarb tart. Last year, I published my recipe for Rhubarb tart with almond cream. After a year of work in food photography, I present to you my Geometric Rhubarb Tart.

4 tips for making a Geometric Rhubarb Tart

Making a Geometric Rhubarb Tart is not that complicated and it even has a fun side! However, it can also become a real headache (and I speak from experience!). After several tries, including a last really successful try, I give you my 4 tips for making a stunning tart every time.

Geometric Rhubarb Tart

1. Choosing the right rhubarb stems

Choose rhubarb stems of equal width in order to get pieces of rhubarb of equal sizes. Also favor the very red stems.

2. Do not peel the rhubarb

In order to obtain a color gradient from red to green, I advise you not to peel your rhubarb. After testing this recipe several times, I never had the problem of too stringy rhubarb.

If you are a little reluctant to leave the rhubarb unpeeled, you can peel the underside of the stem only.

3. Don’t drain your rhubarb

Normally, it is advisable to soak the rhubarb in sugar for a few hours to remove the acidity. However, disgorging the rhubarb will make it a little duller and therefore less photogenic.

In the following recipe, I have adapted the amounts of sugar to compensate for not having disgorged the rhubarb. If you decide to disgor the rhubarb beforehand, reduce the amount of sugar in the almond cream (50 g instead of 80 g).

4. Test your geometric designs in advance

I advise you to do a test before placing the pieces of rhubarb on your dough.

Here is how I created the design of my geometric design:
