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.

    Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Cinnamon, Cloves, and Allspice

    There’s nothing like a roast to feed a crowd. These lean pork tenderloins will reign at the buffet table and will be equally enjoyed hot or cold. Simply prepared with a rub scented with the flavours of your favourite apple pie, the meat is roasted and rested to retain its juices before being laid out on peppery arugula leaves simply dressed in a classic vinaigrette. When is pork done? Has your pork ever come out dry? It could be all down to a number. In 2020, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) updated its recommended internal temperature from the previously published 160 F (70 C) to 145 F (63 C) to allow for rest time. The new standard reflects a clearer distinction between temperature taken prior to rest time and after. During rest time, the internal temperature continues to rise, reaching the desired 160 F (70 C).
