Tim: Mary Berry is hardly reinventing the wheel here, is she?
Maureen: No, but who doesn’t love a chocolate tart?
Nicholas (10): Is this warm?
Maureen: It is indeed, just like Mary told me to do. She did want me to stencil some icing sugar on the top, but I chose not to do that. I don’t think it needs it, though if I were trying to impress dinner guests, I would do it.
Andrew (14): Aren’t you trying to impress us?
Andrew: Why not?
Maureen: Seriously? Isn’t a homemade chocolate tart enough for you?
Nicholas: It is for me. This is delicious.
Andrew: Wow. This is good.
Maureen: This is the only recipe from the book where we all like it.
Tim: She does know how to bake, that Mary Berry. Is there a soggy bottom?
Maureen: Absolutely not. Was it hard to get it out of the pan?
Tim: I used my superior skills to get it out without a problem.
Maureen: Ha! I think that was down to the non-stick tart pan. Should I make it again?
Boys: Yes, please!
