Steven Ter Horst Chocolatier [Round 2], Unley

It’s been a year since I’ve been to Steven Ter Horst and it was one of my favourite dessert places in Adelaide. Either awesome french desserts have completely killed my taste buds or the cakes actually didn’t taste that good the day I went.

The raspberry lime tart would give warheads a run for it’s money. It was extremely sour with a very slight hint of sweetness – I love sour things but this was just way over the top. At first I thought it was the raspberries but when eaten alone they were alright. The sourness was from the curd. It was way too heavy handed – leaving me with a puckered up face.

The Marscapone Dream had velvet smooth mousse but it felt like eating cream. This dessert was surprisingly not  too sweet but I found it a bit rich – there weren’t any other flavour besides the ‘cream’. The caramel (couldn’t taste the salt) didn’t help much – it just added a bit more sweetness to it all.

Marscapone Dream – Marscapone Mousse, Salted Caramel Cream, Praline Sponge on a Crunchy Chocolate Base ($8.50)

Desserts were beautifully presented as always – it has always been a joy taking photos of Steven Ter Horst’s creations. Not sure if I just went on a bad day as I’ve heard from a friend that the raspberry tart wasn’t sour on his day – I guess better luck next time?
