Chocolate Hazelnut Tart with Rosemary and Orange with 3 small pieces cut and still inside the tart on a white background

Tart. Tart. Just try saying it out loud. The word itself even sounds tart. Do you ever say a word so many times that it doesn’t sound like a thing anymore? If that’s the case, you better stop talking and start baking. My Chocolate Hazelnut Tart with Rosemary + Orange are definitely a thing. I think.
