This tart is definitely dressed to impress, with a crumbly buttery tart case spread with melted chocolate then filled with homemade crème patissiere and the very best of British strawberries, glistening with strawberry jelly – what’s not to like?


Recipe serves 6

Preparation time: 1 hour

Chilling time: 1 hour 35 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes

Pastry

100g (4oz) plain flour
2 tablespoons icing sugar
50g (2oz) butter, diced
2 egg yolks
Crème patissiere
3 egg yolks
50g (2oz) caster sugar
1 tablespoon plain flour
2 tablespoons cornflour
250ml (8fl oz) semi skimmed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

To Finish

100g (4oz) dark chocolate, broken into pieces
½ a 35g strawberry jelly tablet
1kg (2 ¼ lb) strawberries, hulled and halved
Dark and white chocolate curls to decorate – see cook’s tip, optional

Method

Cook’s Tip
To make chocolate curls, run a swivel bladed vegetable peeler over the underside of a block of white and dark chocolate, keeping the bottom edge of the peeler blade near the edge of the block of chocolate. If the curls are very tiny then warm the chocolate for 10 seconds in the microwave on full power and try again. Depending on the size of the chocolate bar, you may need to give it a second burst in the microwave. When you have enough curls to decorate, rewrap the bars of chocolate and store the remainder in the fridge.

Cook’s Tip
If you are celebrating, simply add some small party sparklers to the top of the tart and light just as you take the tart into the room.
