Method

For the sweet sponge

  • 1

    Mix all the ingredients by using a stand mixer. Place in the siphon (cream whipper) with 2 cartridges of CO2 and store it in the fridge for 40 minutes.

  • 2

    Siphon the mixture into a container and cook it in the microwave at 1000/1100W for one minute.

 

For the ganache

Heat the cream, pour it onto the previously heated chocolate, then whip.

 

For the cremoso with extra virgin olive oil

Make a custard with milk, cream, sugar and egg yolk. Pour the custard over the white chocolate and mix. Finally, add the gelatine soaked in water and the Nocellara Monocultivar Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

 

For the coral

Emulsify the ingredients with a hand blender. In the meantime, heat a non-stick pan, and when it is very hot, pour the mixture into the pan. Wait until the water has evaporated, remove the coral and allow to cool on a silicone mat.

 

Food plating

Arrange the dessert on the plate by placing the chocolate ganache at the base. Place small portions of the extra virgin olive oil custard and then some small pieces of sweet sponge on top. Decorate with the coral.
