Method
for the quinces
Put all of the ingredients into a saucepan and place it on high heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and then turn the heat to a very low simmer. Continue cooking, adding small amounts of water if required) until they are translucent and deep pink. It is difficult to put a precise time on this as it depends on how ripe and how long the fruit has been picked.

When the quinces are ready reserving the syrup, drain the quinces and cut each quarter into four.

for the labeneh
Whisk together the egg yolks, salt and pepper and then mix into the labeneh.

to assemble the tart
pre heat oven to 180°C

Starting with a layer of the labeneh mix spread one half evenly on the base of the tart case. Put a layer of Gorgonzola and quince and cover with the remaining half of the labeneh and repeat the process.

Bake the tart for 40 to 50 minutes and stand on a rack to cool for at least one hour before removing from the ring and cutting.
