  • About

This is more like a chocolate mousse that has been baked to form a crust. It’s flourless, which is perfect for people on a gluten-free diet, and it’s also incredibly rich. You can vary the flavours - adding 1 cup of ground roasted hazelnuts to the egg yolks in place of the star anise works well. Serve with plain whipped cream or crème fraîche, or it goes down a treat with tamarind ice cream, a combination that brings east and west together deliciously. Here I make the choice for you!
