Assembly and finishing

Forest Flower

AMATIKA Gavotte Wafers: Make the AMATIKA wafer mixture.
Spread some of it out into 4cm × 50cm rectangles on a non-stick mat.
On another non-stick mat, spread some more mixture into 2-3cm × 12cm rectangles.
Bake the wafers at 340°F (170°C) for 8 minutes and coat them with cocoa butter as soon as they are out of the oven.
Immediately roll the larger strips of wafer around a 4cm ring, and the smallest strips around a very thin rolling pin.
Store in a hermetically sealed box with a moisture absorber.
Prepare the pineapple rings, then cook them, strain them and set aside. Reduce the cooking water and use it to glaze the pineapple pieces.
Make the foam and place it in a syphon. Make the pressed streusel and the sorbet.
Melt the AMATIKA chocolate and spread it on a marble slab. Once it has set, use a cutter to make it into shavings.
Spray some of the shavings with the exotic sauce, then sprinkle them with grated coconut.
Plating: Place some differently sized droplets of vanilla fruit juice and 3 pineapple rings.
Place the rolled wafer on the plate. Garnish with 30g of pineapple compote and place 20g of pressed streusel on top.
Make a scoop of PASSION FRUIT INSPIRATION and pineapple sorbet (approx. 20g) and place it on the pressed streusel.
Cover the pineapple sorbet with AMATIKA foam using the syphon.
Decorate with some wafer pieces and AMATIKA & coconut shavings, and a Chocolatree “5-model Yule Log shapes (ref. 46911VNR)” decoration.
