Chocolate Custard Tart with Homegrown Raspberries

Simply stunning! And though ingredients play a part in the resulting flavour of a recipe, a lot of what makes home-made food great is the love that goes into them when made. Something that, by the looks of your final products, you have plenty of, both for your creations and the family they will feed :)

That looks absolutely beautiful.

Yum yum Bron! You bet that I love this association of flavors. And sorry to hear Valrhona is so $$ in NZ! Did you try the other kiwi brand Schoc?

Good grief, I would so love just that one fork full in the last photo! Awesome! No need to justify a budget with the looks of that. Terrific photo.
I'd be so torn - no wait, I'd know just how to do it. One raspberry, one tart, one raspberry, one tart, one tart... How divine!

Damn that looks good! I'd ponder dusting some powdered sugar on it with some raspberry sauce!

Hi Bron
I've been lurking around reading your fantastic blog for a few months now. An Aucklander here (don't hold it against me!) who also has never bought valrohna for cooking due to the cost, but I never thought of whittakers - brilliant! And isn't that cocoa just the best? In fact when I just use Nestle melts, I'll often put a spoon of that cocoa in to give it that extra edge.
Your photography is outstanding along with your food styling. I'm also so jealous of the amount of fresh produce you have to play with, oh well, my fault for being a dorklander...

Thank you so much Ellie for your kind comments, you are so right there.

Hi Ash, thank you!

Thank you Bea, Schoc is very difficult to locate down here in Canterbury and still a little $

Hi Tanna, thanks so much I'd love to share a slice with you!

It tastes damn good too Jeff, thanks!

Hi Genny, welcome, thanks so much for introducing yourself!
Yes, Equagold's cocoa and the new range of Dark Whittakers are fantastic products! I shouldn't be complaining and I'm not really! Cost simply is a huge factor for me. Thanks so much for your kind words!

That looks just absolutely divine, I almost licked the screen of my computer!

Mmmmmm... i'll be making this this weekend! Try to stop me! :)

Yum Bron! nothing wrong with whittakers, the new dark one is just starting to come into oz shops, and my german friend who is VERY fussy with her chocolate, pronounced it 'better than lindt'. whenever I find an almond gold, I grab it - even tho it makes me very homesick! :)

Oh wow, that looks perfectly delicious! I have a weakness for chocolate tarts and yes, aren't raspberries the perfect accompaniment? In 2 weeks we have some friends comign over for lunch and he's a chocaholic, so I think I might try this recipe. We have New Zealand lamb on the menu, so it would be rather fitting to use your recipe!

Thanks heaps Jules,

Hi lien, thank you so much. However, I wouldn't recommend licking you monitor, especially if it's as dusty as mine is! ;-)

Cool Mae, let me know how it turns out for you!

Hi Zoe, thank you and you're completely right, of course! There is absolutely nothing wrong with Whittakers!
It's great stuff and it leaves you with more $ to play with elsewhere, btw lovely to find another Kiwi blogger!

Hi Jeanne, thank you hun, yes I totally agree raspberries / chocolate are perfect together, I hope you enjoy the tart.

Bron! It looks very tempting. I'm just wishin we live closer, so we can just go to each other kitchen and exchange cultures!!!

Bron: You're in the round-up...last, but not least! (Your entry must've been sent to Vogue Food instead of to me!)
