re

not to make light ,but if you have strawberry/rhubarb goo in the middle you've over-cooked the rhubarb, to me. if it was inspired by you, or made for someone special put the name of that person or place at the end as-in strawberry rhubarb rockafeller, or strawberry/rhubarb check this out interesting Chinese Recipe Name Origins

It's my opinion that anything that has a pastry crust (brisee, sucree, puff, etc) above or below can technically be called a tart or pie in most cases (think tarte tatin).

One of my favourite Chinese dish names is "Buddha Jumps over the Wall". Guess what it is?

puff it is.....
thanks for the laughs. guess I'm just too literal, few things gaul me more than in correct technical names.....cashew confit makes me cringe...like running fingernails down a chalkboard.
A friend called during this response and said call it strawberry ruckle....huh? he said like strawberry buckle....nope.

I'm pretty fussy about not overcooking fruit....so overcooked rhubarb is not an issue.
