      Torta di Cioccolato

      Baked chocolate tart served with hazelnut gelato.

      From The Best Desserts in Cape Town: "You’ll find a particularly luxurious version of the chocolate tart at this popular Italian restaurant. It’s dense, fudgey, with an earthy chocolatey flavour that’s not too sweet. The hazelnut gelato balances the richness wonderfully. As you dip your spoons in, there’ll be a hush in conversation (for all the right reasons)."
