Have the best of all worlds with the exquisite tart platter, which contains three of each of their three best-sellers.
First up is the lemony meringue tart, consisting of an eye-catching lemon curd filling topped with lightly torched meringue. The lemon curd, while tangy, proves to be a little too sour for my taste. Thankfully, some of the sourness is neutralised by the meringue, which isn’t too sweet and has a nice texture that melts in the mouth. This all sits in a pâte sablée crust, which has a firm cookie-like texture.
The Valrhona dark chocolate tart is a treat for chocolate lovers; dig into a smooth dark chocolate ganache that’s made from the finest Valrhona guanaja and callebaut N° 811 ganache. It’s covered with a decadent chocolate glaze and dotted with glimmering gold specks, giving it a mouth-wateringly reflective sheen. The chocolate isn’t too rich; with the glaze helping to balance out the bitterness of the dark chocolate. I like that the chocolate crust isn’t too thick either!
Lastly, the fruitilicious fruit tart comprises a mix of fruits – think: strawberries, blueberries, kiwis and peaches – nestled atop a layer of vanilla custard. The fruits are juicy and fresh, with a nice bite to them. The custard is smooth and silky, without being too sweet as well.
The buttery pastry isn’t too thick, with a crumbly texture. The mixed fruit glaze brushed on top ties the tart together; this is probably my favourite of the lot!
