Most recipe books use ground ginger in dessert recipes. Personally, I prefer using fresh ginger. All you have to do is reduce the required quantity by half. What a difference!
Combine the icing sugar, flour, salt and orange zest. Add the butter and stir well as for a pie dough. Add the egg and keep 1 hour in the refrigerator. Spread the dough into tart molds or one large pie pan. Bake in the oven at 180°C (350°F) until the edges start to brown. Let sit at room temperature.
Chocolate Ginger Ganache:
In a saucepan, heat the cream just to the boiling point. Turn off the heat. Add the chocolate and stir well to melt it. Pour into a bowl. Add the ginger, egg yolk and butter. Stir well and pour over the crust. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Pear Juice Crème Anglaise:
Peel the pear into small sticks and put aside. Place the peels and leftovers in a saucepan with the water and sugar. Heat just to the boiling point. Filter the syrup into a bowl and add the pear sticks. Let soak about 20 minutes Remove the pear sticks. Combine the syrup with the cream and egg yolks. Put the preparation back into a saucepan over medium heat and stir gently using a wooden spoon until it thickens lightly. Remove immediately from the heat. When the cream coats the spoon, pour into a bowl and place in the refrigerator.
Serve the tart with the pear sticks and a little crème anglaise.
