( There's chocolate, and then there's tablea—its more rustic cousin that's loved for its decidedly less-refined, more pure-cacao flavor. Filipinos use it to make tsokolate and champorado, but it's also worth exploring how it can be employed to make desserts. We spotted a treat that does exactly that: the Tablea Ganache Couverture Tart by Cebuano purveyor Quino's Favorites!

The Tablea Ganache Couverture Tart brings together the best of both worlds—premium tablea and Belgian couverture chocolate—as a silky-smooth ganache that's got the robust flavor of tablea and the distinctive richness of couverture chocolate. Supporting it is a crust that adds a welcome crunch to the mix. This dessert comes in a 9.5-inch round tart and goes for P1,150. it's got tablea and Belgian couverture chocolate in the mix!
