  • 1 T Frangelico (hazenul liqueur)

For Serving

Procedure

Crust
Mix the flour, ground hazelnuts, and sugar; rub in the butter with olive oil until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in 1 tablespoon of water and 1 t hazelnut emulsion with a fork until the mixture forms a ball. Roll out between two pieces of parchment paper. Press gently into a tart pan. Press gently into a tart pan. Stick in the freezer while the oven heats. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until a light golden brown.

Filling
In a medium saucepan, bring the cream to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and pour in the chocolate. Let sit for three minutes, then whisk till smooth. Stir in the butter, hazelnut emulsion, and liqueur.


Pour the filling into the pre-baked tart and let cool. Once the chocolate is completely cooled and set, sprinkle the top with unsweetened cocoa powder to serve, let the tart soften slightly at room temperature.


Serve very thin slices as this is a rich, decadent dessert.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
