2021 Christmas Edition - Forêt de Noël
Earl Grey Valrhona Dark Chocolate Mousse with Strawberry Raspberry Confit
The Christmas forest that satisfies your guests' chocolate cravings
This cake is loaded with the finest range of chocolates, brimmed with earl grey and packed with berries. The light and airy mousse is made of Valrhona Manjari 64% dark chocolate which has brilliant tangy hints of dried fruits. The mousse houses a layer of sweet and sour Strawberry Raspberry confit, a bittersweet genoise (flourless sponge) made with Valrhona Caraibe 66% dark chocolate, a citrusy sweet Valrhona Jivara 40% milk chocolate cremeux which has been infused with earl grey tea leaves, and finally, a toasty earl grey croustillant which is made of Earl grey chocolate crumble, hazelnut praline, milk chocolate and slivered almonds. Valrhona Guanaja 70% Dark Chocolate glaze coats the cake and above it sits a chocolate reindeer, choux puffs to resemble mushrooms, and 'moss' in the form of earl grey chocolate crumble.
Every layer eaten together will form an exciting blend of flavours that will impressively stimulate your tastebuds. As the mousse melts in your mouth freeing the tangy bittersweet breath of the Manjari chocolate into your palate, the bittersweet dark chocolate genoise with notes of roasted coffee finds the fragrant gentle tang of the confit and interlaces superiorly with the sweetness of the milk chocolate cremeux and floral notes of earl grey. These delicious pairings meet the earthy, citrusy and sweet-scented crunchy base halfway, to create an immaculate mix of flavours.
It's got a tasty harmony of sweet, sour, and bitter. And it's got the enjoyable feel of a soft chew, a pleasant crunch, and a melt-in-the-mouth experience all at once. It's a delicious flavour combo that is sure to get everyone around the Christmas table coming back for more!
P.S. The chocolate decorations are delicious on their own! ;)
