Chocolate & Raspberry Terrine

A terrine is a long rectangular form used to make Pâté, so basically it is just the name of the form or shape of the finished product. If you do not have a terrine form, you can use a bread or loaf pan.

8 Ounces/250 Grams Dark chocolate (60% Cocoa content or above)
4 Ounces/125 Grams Unsalted Butter
350 ml/3 1/2 DL Crème Anglaise (Recipe Follows)
1/4 Cup Raspberry Liquor
1 Cup Fresh Raspberries
Raspberry Purée for serving (Optional)

Place a large Saucepan with about 2 inches of hot water in it onto a medium heat. Chop the chocolate into pieces and place it into a heatproof bowl along with the butter and the liquor. Place the bowl over the hot water (it is best if the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water). Whilst you are waiting for your chocolate to melt line the inside of your form with a layer of cling film. Stir the chocolate occasionally, once it has completely melted and is incorporated with the butter, remove from the heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.

Stir in your Crème Anglaise and then gently fold in the raspberries. Pour the mix into the form and chill completely. Once firm, remove from the form and slice with a knife dipped in hot water. Serve with Raspberry purée.

Notes: To prevent the raspberries from breaking up too much you can simply freeze them slightly before folding them into the mixture. For a firmer terrine, freeze and remove from the freezer 10 minutes before slicing.

For added texture you can crush dark chocolate cookies and sprinkle over the terrine once it is on the plate, now add vanilla ice cream and you have a fantastic dessert!
