Strawberry Basil Tart Video, By Kitchen Vignettes For PBS

There are cooking videos that teach you how to make something new. There are cooking videos that just give you something nice to look at for a few minutes. This strawberry basil tart video is something else altogether -- it's the kind of video that takes something that looks impossibly perfect, and transforms it into something approachable by average humans. We love this kind of cooking video.

Also, Kitchen Vignettes was nice enough to include slow-mo custard-making footage. Come on.

Looking at a photo of this beauty, it seems like something you'd need to recruit a small army of tiny elves to help you make overnight. But this video breaks down the steps, so you know exactly what you're in for the whole way through, from pie crust, to custard, to berry placement. Normal humans: we can make this incredible summer tart without elven assistance!
