Orange and Almond Tart

Pair with: Pale Cream


Cooking time: 1 hour

As a general rule, it is considered appropriate for the Sherry drunk at the end of a meal to be sweeter than the pudding with which it is paired. For Sherries served with puddings, we mainly recommend Creams and Pedro Ximénez which are all sweet, but totally different.
