Chocolate and Strawberry Tart

This is such a wonderful treat. The most difficult part is of course making the tart cause the rest is pretty straightforward. I was watching Masterchef the professional on BBC and Michel Roux Jr tested the chefs in the competition on this tart and it looked really beautiful. The tart is very easy to make especially if you are not on TV and you don’t have only 1 hour to make it. I think Michel Roux Jr would be proud of me. He uses Raspberries but of course they didn’t have them at Tesco so I had to use strawberry. Still works pretty damn good.

For the Pastry
·      125 g of butter
·      1 or 2 eggs (depending on how big they are)
·      A pinch of salt
·      250 g of Flour

For the Chocolate Ganache
·      A cup of double cream
·      200 g of Dark chocolate
·      50 g of butter
·      Fresh Strawberry

Make the pastry using a food processor is such a time saver.
Make dough and wrap it with cling film and let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 minute.

Roll the pastry with a rolling pin. Place it into a tart pan and bake it for 20 minutes at 180°C

While the pastry bakes, bring to boil the double cream, then remove it from the heat and add the chocolate and the butter and whisk until it’s shiny and smooth.

Cut the strawberry in half.

Once the pastry is cooked, let it cool down. When it reaches the room temperature, make a layer of strawberry at the bottom of the tart and then cover it by pouring the chocolate Ganache over it.

Let it rest in the fridge until the chocolate sets
