A really easy recipe that can be used in many different styles. You can serve it as a starter, main dish or as a dessert depending on the ingredients and the occasion. As a starter it is possible to serve the cheese in one big piece or in small bits. As a main dish you can serve it together with potatoes, ham and a green salad, and as a dessert you can add fig jam and nuts.
This is a traditional recipe of the famous Alsatian flammekueche also known as tarte flambée that my grand-parents used to do every Sunday. They are traditionally baked in a wood-fire oven which makes a crispy bottom with slightly burned edges with a creamy topping. But don´t worry with modern ovens they are also easy and tasty to prepare. Using a wood-fire oven was part of the Sunday evening entertainment at my grand-parents.
It is not so usual to cook tuna together with soy sauce, bacon and olives, but it gives a nice flavor combination. If the soy sauce makes it to salty, you can add some white wine to make it less strong. The tuna fits together with rice or fresh mushrooms on the side.
