Making Revival’s rich chocolate tart is worth the effort

Revival’s Triple Chocolate Tart is the chocolate dessert I’ve dreamed of. Since I can’t live in their dining room, will the chefs share the recipe? Thanks.— Mario Rodgers, Decatur

This is indeed one totally addictive tart with its chocolate crust, chocolate filling, chocolate glaze and a garnish of house candied orange slices. It’s got lots of components, but if you make it, you will certainly dazzle your guests. And since much can be made ahead, it’s really not that hard to prepare. The tart is the creation of Revival pastry chef Danielle Cuff.

We cut the recipe down from the large one the recipe makes, but you’ll still end up with enough crust for two tarts. Divide the dough in half, bake one for this week’s dinner party and put the remaining dough in the freezer for next time because you will surely want to make this again.

The secret to better Thai dishes may already be in your fridge

Thai red curry paste is the condiment that’s started a thousand meals in my kitchen. Simmered with a little coconut milk, it becomes a fragrant, spicy sauce for all manner of meat, fish, vegetables, tofu or noodles. It’s fast, convenient and tasty — better than my local takeout — which is all I ask for on most days of the week...

A clam stew to warm the cockles of your heart

The best clams for this recipe are the small kind, such as cherrystones or even littlenecks. If all you can find are the big ones, simply cut them after they are cooked. Prepare the clams by scrubbing them in bowls of cold water until there's no sand in the bottom of the bowl afterward. You don't want sand in your stew.  Clams are delicious no...
