Chocolate Tart with Gianduja Hazelnut Ice Cream

Chocolate Tart with Gianduja Hazelnut Ice Cream

Guess the chocolate tart from Jewels is stirring more attention and I guessed most would be tempted to compare with Laurent's chocolate tart.

Frankly speaking, both tarts are very different, while Laurent presents his tart with a crispy hazelnut base, dark and milk chocolate cream, Jewels is closer to the Caraibe of Canelé Pâtisserie Chocolaterie. The chocolate filling adopted by Jewels is closer to a huge slice of chocolate truffle that melts cleanly in your mouth. As for Laurent, it is the creaminess of the dark and milk chocolate filling with the crunch of the hazelnut praline that strikes the right chord for most.

Depending on individual preference, Yuan, being a fan of Canelé Pâtisserie Chocolaterie's Caraibe would prefer the chocolate tart from Jewels. As for me, I am more inclined towards Laurent's chocolate tart.

In this dessert, it was the Gianduja Hazelnut Ice Cream that screams attention. As what Yuan describes, it is very close to eating Praline Feuilletine minus the crunch.
