Love the swirly top…wish I could do that!


Romaine July 8, 2010 at 5:19 am

Actually Kayte, I think I may have let the chocolate cool a little too much before I poured it into the pie. So the swirls just happened.


Lynne July 6, 2010 at 6:52 pm

Lovely Tarte Noire! I nearly didn’t make it, but I’m glad I did! I’m always impressed by your talent!

I really love the second photo. Rarely do you get to see a tart served in such dark table settings and plating style. Lovely!!!


Margaret July 6, 2010 at 1:44 pm

Yes, dark, decadent, and delicious. Love the day/nite pics. Beautiful tart.


Jeannette July 6, 2010 at 1:28 pm

Oh these look absolutely gorgeous!!

Kind of like wearing your favorite jeans with a fun top for the day-time and then dressing it up with a bright pair of pumps and a blazer for night-time.


Amber Marie July 6, 2010 at 11:51 am

Goodness – that looks positively indecent!

I love that photo of the slice on the navy plate – very enticing!

looks absolutely delicious!


mike July 6, 2010 at 1:24 am

I’ll have it at both times, please. That night shot is stunning! I can’t agree more – this was one of the simplest things… yet tastes so decadent that you’d think you spent hours making it. Hm… I’ll have to try that chocolate crust next time (I obviously didn’t stray far from the farm this time).


Chaya July 6, 2010 at 12:29 am

This is beautiful and I know how good it tastes.

I am trying to find my photos. My computer stopped working and I have a new one that is not new but no photos. Frustration.


Susan July 6, 2010 at 12:10 am

Beautiful. Short, sweet and to the point! ๐Ÿ™‚ I really, really liked this one.
