Chocolate+Chestnut Boulestin, and Nigel's Cheese+Onion Tart

I've been talking at very long distance with Clodagh about various food matters, and she sent me a recipe she'd seen in the Guardian not so long ago, for Chestnut Chocolate Boulestin, with the advice that you warm the dish before attempting to coat it with caramel as otherwise it will solidify where poured. I am not sure we can even get tinned chestnuts in this corner of the world, but it might be worth looking. It sounds like a worthwhile venture: a truly serious chocolate pudding for grown-ups. If anyone else tries it or works out good variations, let us know.

We also embarked on a discussion about an amazing looking recipe from Nigel Slater's sacred text Appetite: a Cheese and Onion Tart, made with puff pastry.
