Olive Oil Lemon Tart
By Tenina Holder

Not to put too fine a point on it, this was probably my finest hour! In fact, this recipe should really feature in a recipe Hall of Fame or really! (If I don't tell you how great it is, who will...all you anti blog 'comments' folk out there!) Thank you Duo Dishes for showing up in my comments box on a regular basis, and of course Thermomixer...where would my ego be without you? (Clearly its all good...or you would not be reading this post.) After some Master Chef inspiration from the lovely George, I decided to take his whole olive oil chocolate mousse thing to a lemon tart filling....and it is sensational, but don't take my word for it; go ahead and cook then comment!
