Graphic rhubarb tart

Here is a rhubarb pie that is as beautiful as it is good and which will be a sensation on your tables. Nicely cut and assembled, rhubarb offers many creative possibilities. The compositions are more or less complex. Each time, it is a real pleasure for the eyes.
But, I admit that the very idea of ​​embarking on this kind of creation scared me. I knew in advance that this kind of exercise was not suited to my limited patience.
So we got together to prepare this pie. The decoration is his. Mine is the pie itself. It consists of a shortcrust pastry topped with almond cream. On top, there is a strawberry rhubarb compote and of course the pieces of rhubarb nicely arranged to create a geometric pattern.
To do this, you must first define a pattern and then cut out a pattern that will allow you to have pieces all of the same size. I’m not hiding it from you, it’s a long time to do. But the result is so beautiful that it is worth it.
To make it even prettier, I covered the pie, once cooked, with a strawberry rhubarb juice.

Personally, when I looked at the pie pattern as a whole, I couldn’t see how it was put together. I was not visualizing the triangle pattern. Hope the step by step photos help you. Once you have clearly visualized the triangle, the construction is relatively simple. after, the most delicate and the longest remains the cutting. But then again, this pie is worth all the time you spend making it.
