Dark Chocolate and Rosemary Pudding


    Dark Chocolate and Rosemary Pudding

    Chocolate and rosemary make an interesting combo for a dessert. The rosemary is reminiscent of mint, but with a darker and earthier flavour.


    1 cup (250 mL) milk
    1 cup (250 mL) table cream
    3 Tbsp (45 mL) chopped fresh rosemary
    3/4 cup (180 mL) organic cane sugar
    1/3 cup (80 mL) cocoa powder
    2 Tbsp + 1 tsp (35 mL) cornstarch
    Pinch of sea salt (optional)
    3 1/2 oz (100 g) good-quality 70 percent dark chocolate, chopped
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) vanilla

    In saucepan bring milk, cream, and rosemary just to a boil, then remove from heat. Let stand 15 to 30 minutes to infuse, then strain.

    Stir sugar with cocoa, cornstarch, and salt. Bring milk and cream back to a boil, then whisk in sugar mixture. Reduce heat to medium. Whisk constantly until pudding thickens and starts to boil. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate and vanilla until smooth.

    Pour into dishes and refrigerate until chilled. Pudding will thicken more as it cools.

    Serves 6.

    Yogurt Marinated Chicken with Lemon and Cilantro

    Yogurt completely transforms the texture of these chicken thighs, making them tender and flavourful with bright notes of lemon and cilantro. Ideal for a day trip, these can be marinated in the morning and cooked in the evening, but they also work well when cooked in advance and packed for a picnic to be eaten cold. Marinade mentions Marinate chicken thighs for anywhere between 4 and 24 hours. Discard excess marinade that has been in contact with raw chicken. It should not be consumed uncooked.
