Tarte Infiniment Vanille by Pierre Hermé

A great opportunity, a lovely woman, Pinella. Thanks to her and to Silikomart, the opportunity to attend Pierre Hermé Masterclass at Hangar 78 ……. So I decided to take part of the contest “Dolci d’autore” – Pierre Hermé of Pinella. I knew from the beginning which dessert to prepare: “Tarte Infiniment Vanille”, by the french magazine Fou de Ptisserie. Why this treat and not another one? Because I’ve always wanted to achieve it, and finally the right occasion has come. I spent a day thinking “how to” prepare it … and after thinking so much, I decided that I would respect the original shape of the dessert, using a part of the “Eclipse” mold (as expected). Simply because I feared that by modifying the shape and thickness of the cake, I would have in some way changed the balance that Hermé wanted to create with this wonderful tart. The best Idessert have ever eaten until now. If i should prepare it again, I would prepare it exactly the same way. Thank you Pinella.

Pistachios, pears and chocolate tart

This tart is created by the combination of 2 recipes: one from E. Knam and the other, from a friend of mine, Isabelle. It is a simple but very tasty: pears pair deliciously with chocolate and pistachios pair deliciously with both. The whole is moist and crunchy, thanks to the frangipane, to the pears, to the shortcrust pastry and thanks to the crumble. In a word, you find all the elements to prepare a truly delicious tart.

Blackberries tarts

During summertime berries live their magical moment, as they become the ideal ingredients for pies and desserts. Excellent when eaten fresh, and perfect for jams and jellies. During a healthy walk in the woods, I stopped, not to rest, but to pick and taste the deliscious berries purple color, which emerged from the bushes along the way: blackberries. As usual, most desidered things are unreachable. This has happened as well for blackberries. The larger and most juicy ones the were higher. Imagining their flavour, I went beyond the balance, and I fell in the middle of thorns, dragging with me that branch fully of fruits. I got some scratches on the legs, but it has been worthwhile…. and this is the result. Blackberries small tarts: a classic dessert with pastry cream. What do you think about?
