Salted caramel seems to be the flavour of the moment and I won't be complaining any time soon. It's deadly, but totally delicious. With an eager spring in my step, I made a dark chocolate and salted caramel tart at the weekend from the BBC GoodFood website.
Some lovely girlfriends were coming over for an afternoon tea, so the table was set in pretty pastels and florals. I cut the placemats from floral wrapping paper and picked the tea set up at the West Footscray op shop!
The thought of the tart had me salivating all morning, so at 2pm I set off for a quick run around the neighborhood. These are the things you have to do when you want to seriously indulge! After a cold shower, it was time to make the cucumber sandwiches and then serve with Gordon Ramsey's rosewater meringues.
It was a delightful afternoon of guilt-free indulging. A batch of Pimm's punch washed things down a treat. Cups of tea rounded out the flavours. As day turned to night, our male friends were allowed to join us and more food was consumed. Some guilt crept in as our bellies started to groan. Totally worth it though. Tonight, I finished the last sliver of tart, making sure I scraped every last tasty morsel from the plate!
