  1. Place flour, Parmesan cheese, butter, and a pinch of salt in food processor. Process briefly. Add the egg and 1 tablespoon oil through feeder tube, adding extra oil if necessary; you should be able to bring the dough together in your hands. Wrap in cling film and chill for 1 hour.
  2. Roll out to fit a 23cm tart tin with a loose bottom. Prick all over. Chill for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
  3. Line pastry with foil and cover bottom with uncooked beans. Bake at 190 C / gas 5 for 15 minutes. Remove foil and beans, and cook for 5 more minutes. Remove and cool.
  4. Saute mushrooms in 1 tablespoon olive oil for 10 minutes. Drain and cool.
  5. Lay ham over the pastry base, and top with mushrooms and artichokes.
  6. Beat together creme fraiche, eggs, parsley and milk. Season well with black pepper and salt; pour mixture over the ham and vegetables. Bake for 40 minutes, until golden. Serve warm or cold.
