Assembly and finishing

Poach the peaches. Collect the syrup and make the gelatin. Once it has set, use a smooth 6cm cutter to cut it into rounds.

Dice the poached peaches into 3mm cubes. Use the offcuts from the peaches to make a cream. Stick approx. 8g of diced peach onto each gelatin disk and fold them over like you would ravioli.

Make the clusters, the Amatika chocolate soup and the peach sorbet.

When you are ready to serve, put 2 ravioli in a dish for each diner, then pipe out 10g of peach cream using a piping bag.

Put about 10g of crunchy clusters in place, along with a quenelle of peach sorbet.

To finish of your dessert, pour out the warm Amatika chocolate soup in front of the diner.
