Milk Chocolate Ginger Tart with Caramelized Pineapples

Method

Deliciously chocolatey….

For the tart shell:

  • Beat the cookies in a food processor until finely ground.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan. Remove from heat and add the chocolate couverture. Stir with a spatula until the chocolate melts and is completely combined.
  • Add the ground cookies and mix well.
  • Transfer mixture to a 28 cm spring form pan.
  • Use a glass to press mixture onto bottom and sides of pan, until nice and compact.
  • Refrigerate until you make the filling.

For the filling:

  • Heat the milk and ginger in a saucepan until it comes to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and set aside until it cools down to room temperature. Pass through a sieve.
  • Pour back into saucepan and place back on heat, until it almost comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Start to whisk with a hand whisk and add the milk chocolate in 3 batches, making sure each batch is completely incorporated before adding the next.
  • Add the melted butter and stir to combine.
  • You need to follow the last 2 steps mentioned carefully. Make sure the milk is very hot when adding the milk chocolate and make sure it is added in 3 batches. It is important that each batch be completely combined before adding the next. Following these steps exactly ensures that your cream will turn out delicious and very shiny. Also make sure the butter you add is melted. This also helps give the cream a nicer texture.
  • When the ganache is ready, pour over the tart shell. Set it aside to cool completely and then refrigerate to chill/

For the pineapple:

  • Let a pan get very hot over heat. Add the sugar, spices and pineapple slices. Cook until they caramelize. Set aside to cool.
  • When the tart has chilled, pour the cool syrup over the top. Arrange the cinnamon stick, 3 cloves and pineapple slices nicely over the tart.
  • To make sure the pieces are cut and served as nicely as possible, keep a bowl of hot water next to the tart, dip your knife in it and wipe it on a cloth right before you cut a piece. Repeat process each time you want to cut a piece.
