My most desireable dessert over the weekend would be having a cup of coffee over a dark chocolate tartlet. A fabulous bitter sweet chocolate. Having to try almost a lot of recipes and I found this one from Chef Gerald Maridet can be very overwhelming. Very decadent. Full of simplicity. Easy to follow.
It’s fun to meet up with Chef Gerald Maridet who is currently an executive pastry chef at The Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur. A man with humour and a gentleman himself, his class was surely a hit. I notice every guests were eyeing at his finished polished sampling desserts. How can anyone be able to with stand of such temptation. He was such a devil! lol!
His chocolate tartlets was a hit with the crowd. Awesome crusty casing, encasing a rich chocolate cream with flavoured tonka beans. “Clever and genious”. I told myself. Lovely bitterness of the tonka bean will definitely refined the flavour and left with an awesonmme bitterness. It was not too sweet at all! Fabulous. MY coffee was truly refined with a sppon of this tarlet. I was lucky that I managed to grabbed the recipe from awesome Chef Gerald that I will be sharing on this post! Marvellous right? This is how he did it!
