“This is a showstopper at any dinner party and great for the chef because it's so easy to make, but don't forget to add on about two hours to chill the torte. Also, you will want to use a chocolate high in cocoa solids (at least 70 percent) for the best results.”

  1. Start by lining an 18cm springform pan with parchment paper.
  2. Crush the biscuits with a rolling pin or whiz in a food processor until they are turned into crumbs.
