Key Lime Pie with Heston Blumenthal's Pop Rock Crust
Do you like citrus flavoured desserts? I adore the zing of citrus, and thought that it would be a perfect pairing for the snap crackle and pop of Heston Blumenthal's Pop Rock Crust. This crust contains melted chocolate, hazelnut paste, and popping candy. I only had 12g of popping candies, versus Heston's 100g, yet I still found that the crust crackled away merrily in my mouth. I can just imagine what 10 times that amount might do!
Together, I ended up with a tart that, although short in stature, had plenty of zing and attitude to make up for it:
For the benefit of those who made uncomplimentary remarks and whispered in the kitchen that my tart looked like melted cheese because they did not know what it was yet did not even taste it, like children at the dinner table - ask next time. And BTW, you don't have to eat it - no-one asked you to. (Sorry, had to get this off my chest - when they start bringing in desserts to share, then they can criticise.)
Hope you have a great weekend. As for me, I am off to the dentist.
