Selma’s Ruby Chard, Shitake Mushroom and Chestnut Tart

I’d like to add another post dedicated to Selma as I wanted to keep it food-related.  As we all know, Selma was the “Culinary Queen”.  I always loved how she talked about finding ingredients in her cupboard and adding them in her dishes giving a surprise element to the final product.  I loved reading her stories about her son Jake and his friends, about organizing events, her gadabouts through parts of London that she favored, her taste for ethnic foods and markets.  It was all part and parcel of what Selma was and how she came across.  She reached out to so many folks via the blogging world, helping new bloggers like myself, and making them feel welcome.
