It is Friday (again already!?) and that means time to feature another fellow foodie! This week we have Elyse from The Cultural Dish. Elyse is a great baker and chef; she is always posting unique dessert ideas that I love! Hopefully you all have gotten over your food coma from Thanksgiving and are ready for some December sweets! With that, I give you Elyse:
Chocolate Ganache Tart w/ Hazelnut Crumbles from The Cultural Dish
Hello! My name is Elyse and I am a 23 year-old graduate student who loves to travel, bake, and eat! By day I am a student and study abroad advisor at a college, but by night, rather then catching up on my coursework, I blog about the various dishes that I made. I created my blog, The Cultural Dish, a little over a year ago and never imagined that it would actually take off or that I would get to meet, chat, and share recipes with so many wonderful people! There is just nothing like sharing your passion with others and seeing the vast number of people who feel the same way!
As much as I love Thanksgiving and all of the entrees and desserts associated with the holiday, I needed a change of pace. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not sure if I will ever get sick of pumpkin or pecan pie, but I just needed something different after a month long binge of pumpkin! Therefore, since I am a chocolate fanatic, I decided to go with a chocolate ganache tart topped with toasted hazelnuts. This tart is extremely simple to make, but don’t worry, it is nothing short of extreme deliciousness!
Thanks so much Elyse! This looks like a recipe I will be trying for Christmas! If you or somebody you know would like to be a part of this new tradition please e-mail me at savourthesenses (at) gmail (dot) com and we can get you scheduled!
