Chocolate Orange Tart | Cookery School | Waitrose

Chef tutor Helen Carey from our Kings Cross Cookery School shows us how to make a delicious chocolate orange tart from scratch.

This tart makes for a great, showstopper dessert with its classic flavour combination and delicate, crumbly pastry. This recipe has three key stages – a shortcrust pastry base, a zesty orange curd layer and a rich chocolate ganache topping. These are all great recipes and techniques to learn and add to your repertoire and versatile for a number of dishes.

140g unsalted butter, 100g chilled and cubed
180g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
2 egg yolks
3 oranges
1 egg
150g golden caster sugar
½ tbsp cornflour
130g dark chocolate (70% cocoa), finely chopped
130ml double cream
flaky sea salt, for sprinkling

  2. What size tart pan, please? This looks perfect, so I've subscribed. It looks like 8"?
