Romantic recipe: Chocolate pie / Cokoladna pita



Some time ago I decided that I will classify recipes in 3 categories (I already wrote about this):

-Healthy Recipes
-Comfort food
-Romantic Recipes

In the category of Romantic recipes are recipes that contain chocolate. Maybe you think I'm crazy, but chocolate is romantic, passionate ... Food in general is passion ... and those who really like food we see in the various groups on Facebook or elsewhere, that are called  Food porn, a total sense. Oh yeah, freaks! =) So call me a freak because I can now openly admit that I like to watch pictures of all that  "food porn".

True romance is much more . If you think that red roses and box of chocolates are romance... ammm ... I think you should check if you have a bump on your head, because you obviously hit your head hard. Romance is not something so commercialized and empty. And if you think that only people in movies can be romantic  (especially guys like to say that we girls want unrealistic things that exist only in movies) .. then .. then I'll just go crazy and lose my mind ! Romance is hunting for a specific ONE person and not throwing " fishing  hook"  into the sea (at least one  fish will surely be caught, right?). Romance is holding that person in your arms and not doing anything else, because even this is enough and you feel so much during that . Sensuality! This is a necessity for romance. Romance is jumping all the obstacles, because the pull is so strong. Romance is one mind, one body, one heart. Romance is desire, risk, need, necessity, disconnect  from  this world .. and the ONLY meaning. Romance is laughter .. laughter that is so primal and honest ... and occurs only when the right person is with you.

Somehow  I can't  find the right words to fully describe what is romance for me ... I can feel it, but I can't describe it well . I asked my  good friend what is romance to him. He said: " I think it's a perspective on how you see, what you feel, the way you hear, the smell.... It's when ALL your senses are working at an alarming rate of heightened awareness... when u can feel how you're thinking.....I loooove that version of Romance. Look at someone ur eyes absolutely love..... and you know that you know. You're entire body's screaming at you sooo loudly!!! Shouting with everything it's got to communicate to you that.... it loves what it sees, hears, smells & feels....Then convey, it to ur subject- the one who's heightened all this activity in ur body..... That's called 'being romantic. "

Yes, that.

My first romantic recipe will be this  chocolate pie. A simple process to make it, but the final result is damn good !

Ingerdients:
Pie crust:
600g of cookies (oreo, any kind)
100 g butter
Filling:
75g sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
Pinch of salt
2 large egg yolks
3 1/2 dl (350 ml) milk
100 g dark chocolate (70%), chopped
15 g butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 dl (300 ml) heavy whipping cream
Cocoa powder, for dusting or milk chocolate, grated

The process:
Pie crust:
Heat oven to 150°C (300F). Mix cookies to fine crumbs in a food processor or blender. Melt the butter and mix with cookie crumbs until well combined. Place mixture in a pie dish (approx. 20 cm/8 inches) and press onto the bottom and up the sides. Bake for about 10 minutes then let cool.

Filling:
Whisk together sugar, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan. Lightly whisk together yolks and milk in a bowl and then pour into the saucepan. Put pan over moderate heat and stir until mixtures thickens.
Remove from heat and add chocolate, butter and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Let cool, stirring every now and then to prevent a skin from forming. Pour filling into prepared pie crust, whip cream and spoon on top of pie. Dust with some cocoa powder and sprinkle grated milk chocolate on top. Put in fridge, for about 4 hours or overnight.





Nekaj časa nazaj sem se odločila, da bom recepte razvrstila v 3 kategorije (o temu sem že pisala): 
-Zdravi recepti
-Hrana za dušo
-Romantični recepti
V kategoriji Romantični recepti bodo recepti, ki vsebujejo čokolado. Mogoče me imate za zmešano ampak čokolada JE romantična, strastna... Hrana na splošno predstavlja strast...in tisti, ki smo nori na hrano vidimo v raznih straneh na Facebooku ali kje drugje, ki se imenujejo Food porn, totalen smisel. Oh jeah, čudaki! =) Torej kličite me čudakinja, ker vam sedaj odkrito lahko priznam, da rada gledam slike s "prehransko pornografijo".

Prava romantika je veliko več. Če si pod romantiko predstavljate rdeče vrtnice in bonboniero... ammm... mislim, da morate preveriti, če imate kakšno buško na glavi, ker ste se očitno udarili v glavo. Romantika ni nekaj tako skomercializirano praznega in grobega. In če mislite, da so romantični samo ljudje v filmih (še posebno fantje radi rečejo, da si punce želimo nerealne stvari, ki obstajajo samo v filmih)..potem..potem bom kar znorela! Romantika je lov za ENO točno določeno osebo in ne namakanje trnka v morje (kakšna riba bo sigurno prijela, kajne?). Romantika je držanje osebe v naročju, ker jo tako zelo potrebuješ in ne potrebuješ ničesar več od tega, ker že samo ob temu občutiš tako veliko. SENZUALNOST! To je nuja pri romantiki. Romantika je preskakovanje vseh ovir, ker je vlek tako močan. Romantika je en um, eno telo, eno srce.  Romantika je želja, tveganje, potreba, nuja, odklop..in EDINI smisel. Romantika je smeh..smeh, ki je tako prvinski in iskren... in se pojavi samo ob pravi osebi. 

Nekako ne najdem pravih besed, da bi opisala tisto, kar je zame romantika...znam jo čutiti, ne znam je pa dobro opisati. Svojega dobrega prijatelja sem vprašala, kaj je zanj romantika. Rekel je: " Mislim, da je pomembna tvoja perspektiva, kako vidiš, kaj čutiš, način kako slišiš, vonjaš... ko VSI tvoji čuti delujejo na alarmantnih nivojih intenzivno..ko lahko čutiš, tisto kar misliš... Obooožujem tako verzijo Romantike. Ko pogledaš nekoga, ki ga tvoje oči absolutno obožujejo..in veš, da veš. Celotno tvoje telo kriči nate takooo glasno!! Z vsem kar ima, komunicira s teboj, da...ljubi tisto, kar vidi, sliši, vonja & čuti. In nato to posreduješ  tej osebi, ki je povečala vso to aktivnost v tvojem telesu... Temu se reče, biti romantičen." 

Ja, to.

Moj prvi romantični recept bo tale čokoladna pita. Preprosta priprava ampak dober končni rezultat!

Z ljubeznijo, Neja

Sestavine:
Pitina skorja
600g piškotkov (Oreo, ali kakšni drugi piškoti)
100 g masla
Nadev:
75g sladkorja
2 žlici koruznega škroba
Ščepec soli
2 velika rumenjaka
3 1/2 dl (350 ml) mleka
200 g temne čokolade (70%), sesekljane
15 g masla
1 žlička ekstrakta vanilije
3 dl (300 ml), sladke smetane za stepanje
Kakav v prahu, za potresti ali naribana  mlečna čokolada

Postopek:
Pitina skorja
Segrejte pečico na 150 ° C (300F). V mixerju (multipraktiku) zmiksajte piškote do finega. Stopite maslo in ga dobro vmešajte v dobljeno maso iz piškotov, dokler ni cela masa rahlo vlažna. Dobljeno zmes s prsti dobro potlačite v model za pito (ca. 20 cm / 8 palcev) , tudi ob robovih. Pecite približno 10 minut, nato naj se hladi.


Nadev:
Skupaj zmešajte sladkor, koruzni škrob in sol. V skledi narahlo zmešajte skupaj rumenjake in mleko. Obe mešanici zlijemo/stresemo v ponev. Postavite ponev na zmerni ogenj in mešajte, dokler se mešanica ne zgosti.
Odstranite z ognja in dodajte čokolado, maslo in vanilijo. Mešajte, dokler ni masa gladko in vsa čokolada stopljena. Naj se malo ohladi nato maso prelijemo v pripravljen pekač za pito. Stepite smetano in vrh pite nadevajte z njo, za okras posujte s kakavom in naribano mlečno čokolado. Postavite v hladilnik za približno 4 ure ali čez noč.
