what with christmas catch-ups, work getting busy and christmas shopping looming, i feel like i am always playing catch-up –
trying to fit too many things into too little time.
so what to do when it feels like the pace is getting a little too fast?
make chocolate and raspberry tart, that’s what!
it is a truly delicious way to slow down
(and let’s face it, after 2 slices of chocolate tart
there’s no way you can go fast anyway).
so last weekend, i slowed down and made a tart.
i stood still and made pastry, scenting it with cocoa and earl grey tea
and then filling the lovely crisp shell with velvety dark chocolate and raspberries.
now i fear i’m even further behind,
but at least i am well fed.
here’s to slowing down, chocolate-tart-style.
