Valrhona Dark and White Tart

Valrhona Dark and White Tart

Recipe by Julie Le Clerc

Valrhona Dark & White Tart

Serves 16

375g Paneton sweet short pastry
250g Valrhona manjari fèves
200g Valrhona ivoire fèves
200g Lewis Road Creamery butter
2 free-range eggs
4 free-range egg yolks
½ cup caster sugar

Roll out pastry to 3mm thick and use to line a 26cm deep-sided lightly-buttered tart tin. Prick base all over with a fork. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 200°C. Line pastry case with baking paper and fill with baking beans. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and turn oven down to 160°C. Lift out baking paper and beans and return pastry to oven for another 10 minutes to dry out. Remove to cool in tin.

Place Manjari and Ivoire in two separate heatproof bowls. Add 175g of the butter into the dark chocolate and 25g into the Ivoire. Place each bowl over a saucepan of simmering water to melt, or microwave in short bursts until melted. Stir until smooth and set aside to cool a little.

Combine eggs, yolks and sugar in a bowl and whisk with an electric beater for 5 minutes until thick and pale. Fold 2/3 of this mixture into melted dark chocolate and remaining 1/3 into melted Ivoire. Pour dark chocolate mixture into baked pastry case then carefully spoon Ivoire mixture on top. Bake at 160°C for 12 minutes.

Remove to cool, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours to set. Return to room temperature to serve. Cut in thin slivers with a hot knife.
