Oh, and it’s been a few weeks that I had cooked the chocolate pie and the blood orange but I had not yet had time to write the recipe to share here. Good, all of a sudden, it was more in the mood for strawberries fresh than chocolate pie, but it was so good that I could not keep it selfishly for me. And at the same time, with the rotten time he’s done, it’s just the kind of dessert one needs ! It is where my ‘month of may, do as you please…’ ?! ��

I had this recipe specially for my father because I know he loves the association of chocolate and orange and it was to celebrate his retirement, the start of a great holiday, what !!! Personally, I’m not a big fan of this combination but I have to admit that it was well balanced and really good !
