Chocolate Halvah Compassion Crunch Tart with Sugar Art *Online*

As seen on episode 2 of Food Network’s Candy Land, our CCAE instructor, Chef Linda has been cast as a sugar artist. In this online interactive class, we’ll make a variation of the triple lemon compassion crush tart she made on the show, using her original chocolate halvah recipe. The magical touch of this tart came from her unique sugar art and backstories for the confections. You’ll learn how to make all the components of this tart including tart crust, chocolate halvah custard, meringue, and sugar art. You’ll hear the story behind the show, the cast, and the cause to raise awareness of global issues, such as safe water, through her partnership with the nonprofit Pure Water for the World.
