Melba 1

Melba

The famous Chef Georges Auguste Escoffier created at the end of 1800s the dessert Melba, to honor the australian soprano Nellie Melba. The dessert is made of peaches, raspberries sauce and vanilla ice cream. Today, I suggest you a modern reinterpretation of the same treat, consisting of a peach mousse, a raspberry jelly and a vanilla curd. The whole is wonderful …….

Brioches portoghesi al latte condensato 1

Portuguese sweetened condensed milk rolls

I prepared the famous Brioches Parisiennes by Christophe Felder (here) Mascarpone and vanilla brioches, (here) Lemon Buchty brioche (here) with crème fraiche or sour cream, I couldn’t ignore these Portuguese sweetened condensed milk rolls. All the doughs (but the first) call for different fat than butter. All the brioches are gorgeous, super soft  and you can flavor them as you prefer.

Apple custard tart

A very simple tart, but really delicious. Shortcrust pastry has been unflavored with lemon zest and juice, but if you prefer, you can use cinnamon. Once you arrange the apple slices in the tart shell, a rich and creamy custard is then poured over the apples and the tart is baked until the custard has set. So, nothing difficult to prepare, but you will get a gorgeous tart.

Raspberries not baked cheesecake

Everyone loves cheesecake….. It can be prepared baked or unbaked, it can be flavored and is often served topped with fruit, chocolate or whipped cream. Usa dedicate one special day to this famous dessert: National Cheesecake Day is observed annually on July 30th. The cheesecake I offer you, is a rare dessert, with a juicy and jelly raspberries layer inside. You can find a lemon crunchy sablée with a creamy, rich cheese batter flavored with lemon zest. Very easy to make, it is one of my favorite desserts. A bright and fresh cheesecake….perfect for summer season.

Sunny…..a cake with colors and flavors of the sun. A basil and vanilla bavarian cream, a juicy peaches jelly with a crunchy brunoise. Then a thin chocolate and corn flakes crunchy base with a vanilla syrup to soak the biscuit. The scent of basil fits perfectly with vanilla for a unique flavor.
