Cacao sablé

Mix the soft butter at room temperature with the salt, icing sugar, powdered almonds, and cocoa.

Quickly mix without allowing it to gather using the kneading blade.

Add the flour, mix together, and chill.

Roll out the dough between sheets of parchment paper and leave to chill in the refrigerator.

Assemble the tartlets.

Use a round mould with a wavy edge, 18 cm in diameter.

Cool the dough in the mould for at least 15 minutes.

Bake at 150°C for 9 minutes.

Leave to cool while you prepare the chocolate filling.

Chocolate fondant

Heat the milk with the cream to its boiling point.

Pour over the chocolate whilst gradually mixing to obtain an emulsion.

Mix in the eggs.

Strain the mixture over the cake base using a strainer to remove any lumps and burst any air bubbles.

Quickly run the blow torch over the surface to break any bubbles that may have formed.

Bake in a pre-heated oven of 220° C.

Turn off the oven, put the cake in for 15 to 20 minutes and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour before cutting it to ensure a moist, creamy cake.

Rosemary chocolate

Slice the rosemary leaves into julienne strips.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30-second blasts at 480 W.

Once melted, mix with the sliced rosemary and place in a mould.

Leave to crystallise in the refrigerator.


Whip the cream until firm.

Transfer to a piping bag with a serrated nozzle and set aside.

Pit and julienne the dates and reserve in the fridge.


Grate the rosemary chocolate with the microplane grater until the surface of the cake is covered.

Decorate the entire circumference of the cake with whipped cream peaks.

For the finishing touch, place a small piece of date on top of each cream peak.
