Fig & Chocolate Tart Recipe (GF)

Mother's Day is not only a time for “motherhood”, but a moment to pause and celebrate the sisterhood around us: our friends, sisters, daughters, mentors, aunties and who accept us, love us and shape us.

For my family, we love any excuse to cook and eat beautiful food together.
One of our kids has recently gone gluten-free, so over the past year I’ve been enjoying a learning a new way to bake. I’m sharing a recipe for my favourite autumn ‘go to’: a crustless torte, with chocolate, figs and hazelnuts. It’s quick, easy and delicious.


Buon appetito!
