“My take on the classic tarte Bordaloue - Fine chocolate sweet crust pastry filled with chocolate almond cream and baked with burgundy poached pears”
First poach the pears the day before you wish to make the tart. Place the caster sugar, wine, cinnamon and water in a large saucepan and heat until the sugar has dissolved making a syrup.
Peel the pears, leaving them whole, and add them to the simmering syrup. Poach the pears for 10 minutes. Set the pears aside to cool in the syrup. Once cool chill the pears, still in the syrup, overnight in the refrigerator.
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 4.
In a mixing bowl mix together the ground almonds, cocoa and caster sugar. Add the butter and cream together until thoroughly mixed (using a hand mixer starting at a slow speed and increase as the mixture loose up).
Beat in the eggs one by one.
Fill the pastry case with the almond cream.
Halve the poached pears, keeping the stem intact, and slice across.
Layer the pear slices across the almond cream.
Bake the tart for 30-40 minutes until the filling is set and the pastry pale gold.
Gently heat the apricot jam in a small pan. Brush the freshly baked pear tart with warm apricot jam to glaze it.
Serve the warm pear tart with cream, caramel sauce or vanilla ice cream.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
