For the pastry, place the flour, salt and butter into a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Add the egg yolks and sugar and pulse until the mixture comes together to form a dough. You may need to add a splash of ice cold water if the pastry is too dry. Place into a bowl, cover the bowl with cling film and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200 C/400 F.

Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until large enough to line a 25 cm/10 in fluted tart tin. Place into the tin, then place a piece of grease proof paper on top.

Place into the oven for 15 minutes, then remove the paper and beans and return to the oven for five minutes, or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, for the filling, bring the cream, vanilla extract and sugar slowly to the boil in a pan.

Break the chocolate and butter into pieces and place into a large bowl. Pour over the cream mixture and whisk slowly until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.

Pour the chocolate mixture into the tart case and leave to cool. Place in the fridge to set for two hours.

To serve, cut the tart into wedges. Serve with strawberries and a sprig of mint.
