infiniment Vanille 1

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.

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 …….

Torta moderna vaniglia e cioccolato

Vanilla and chocolate modern cake

To celebrate our return, I wanted something rich, elegant and something with chocolate. Modern cakes, characterized by layers of different consistencies, give the result to seem a special day or occasion. About modern cakes I appreciate the delicate structure and soft and moist interior. The chocolate sponge layer adds a richness of flavour. Every slice is pure bliss.

Nutella buttons cookies 3

Nutella buttons cookies

Cookies, cookies and cookies. I found out the pleasure of making cookies. Quick to make and perfect for any time in a day, breakfast, snack or just when you want to taste something small and tasty. These ones,  the first of a series that you will find on the blog, are made with a chocolate sablé (shortcrust pastry)  and a vanilla sablé. It ‘s true, they are a bit long to prepare, ( I suggest to refrigerate the dough each step) but the wait is worth. Delicious plain, but  filled with Nutella, they will be even more delicious and gorgeous.
