Try this amazing White Chocolate Strawberry Tart with Balsamic vinegar.
White Chocolate Strawberry Tart with Balsamic
We are in the depths of winter here in Australia and this tart is white as the snow but it has the promise of better times, sun and berries. The Queenslanders’-(the northern most state of Australia, where there are tropical beaches and Strawberries in the winter), have been busy growing these ones. This tart isn’t just for winter though it’s for anytime you want a really stunning looking dessert. It’s made ahead of time and works with all kinds of berries
White chocolate can be cloying and…..white…… and a bit sweet, but have you tried it with strawberries and balsamic?
You might be surprised at the transformation. Make sure that you use a sweet and sour lovely balsamic vinegar and some good quality white couverture for best results. I have used Amedei chocolate, because I have it from work but another white chocolate will always work. If you can’t find a really nice balsamic then just use less and add a bit more sugar .

This pastry is like shortbread. It is soft to work with so make sure it is chilled well. If it breaks push together well so that it sticks when baked.
The white chocolate will be balanced very well between the sweetness of the chocolate and the balsamic with the strawberries
