The Holland Park district of London is one of the city's most handsome residential areas, and right in the middle of its tree-lined streets is the small, very beautiful Halcyon Hotel. The Halcyon has become famous for its private-home setting, its individually decorated rooms, and its excellent restaurant. The restaurant is called the Kingfisher, and it is directed by Chef James Robinson, who is responsible for the following tart. Rich and satisfying, a small slice of this delightful pastry makes a perfect ending to a meal.

Prepared pie crust dough for one 9-inch tart
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
4 egg yolks
3/4 cup maple syrup
8 ounces walnuts
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
4 teaspoons lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 9-inch tart pan with the pie dough. Crimp edges.

In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar until the mixture is smooth and light.

With the mixer running, slowly add the egg yolks and maple syrup.

Fold in the walnuts, lemon juice and zest, vanilla extract, and the salt. Pour into the tart shell.

Set the tart pan on the middle rack of the oven and bake 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F. and bake 30 to 35 minutes longer or until set.

Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.

Active Time:  20 Minutes
Total Time:  3 Hours 30 Minutes 12 servings, 1/2 cup each

This incredibly refreshing icy dessert is made without using an ice cream maker.

Make Ahead Tip: Freeze in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
6 cups watermelon chunks (4-pound watermelon), seeded
2 tablespoons lime juice

Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature, about 45 minutes. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

Place watermelon and lime juice in a food processor; process until smooth. Set a sieve over a large bowl and press the puree through to remove tiny seeds. Whisk in the sugar syrup.

Pour the watermelon mixture into a shallow metal pan and freeze until ice crystals form around the edges, about 30 minutes. Stir the ice crystals into the center of the pan and return to the freezer; repeat every 20 minutes until all the liquid is frozen.

Serve immediately or transfer to a storage container and let harden in the freezer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Serve in chilled dishes.
