butter, for greasing
500 g sweet shortcrust pastry
rice or dried beans
150 ml natural yoghurt
200 g mascarpone cheese
2 tablespoons icing sugar
zest of ½ orange
250 g raspberries
100 g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
A lovely, summery dessert.
Preheat your oven to 170°C/325°F/gas 3. Grease four 10cm loose-bottomed tart tins with a little butter. Divide the pastry into four. Roll out each quarter to the thickness of a £1 coin, then line the tins with the pastry. Chill for 20 minutes in the fridge. Cover each pastry case with greaseproof paper, fill with rice or dried beans, and bake blind in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Remove the cases from the oven, tip out the rice or beans and take out the lining. Place the cases back in the oven and bake for a further 5 minutes until golden brown. Take the cases out and let them cool down completely.
Whip the yoghurt, mascarpone, icing sugar and orange zest in a mixing bowl until light and shiny. Keep it in the fridge until the pastry cases are cool.
Divide the creamy mix between the cooled pastry cases and level with a spoon. Place the raspberries lightly on the cream – no need to push. Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water until it has completely melted.
Carefully remove the hot bowl and drizzle each tart with chocolate. Serve straight away or keep in the fridge for later.
Tip: Strawberries or blackberries on top of the tarts will be delicious too.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
