04

IVOIRE & VANILLA WHIPPED GANACHE

100g Whipping cream

10g Acacia honey

10g Glucose

145g IVOIRE 35% chocolate

1 Vanilla bean

270g Whipping cream

Heat 100g of cream with the honey and glucose.
Infuse the split and scraped vanilla bean in the hot cream.
Pour a third of this hot mixture into the melted IVOIRE 35% chocolate, stirring vigorously with a spatula. Continue, adding the condensed milk mixture little by little.
Add the 270g cold cream and mix with a hand blender to complete the emulsion.
Seal the surface with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
Leave to set, preferably overnight.

Assembly and finishing

Randomly arrange some half-spheres of raspberry confit on the pressed shortbread. Beat the IVOIRE 35% vanilla ganache in a food processor at medium speed until it has a light mousse-like texture. Fill a piping bag with the resulting whipped ganache and make a slanted hole in its pointed end. Pipe the ganache unevenly into the tart’s base and between the half-spheres. Freeze. If you want individual bars, slice the tart into 3cm wide strips. This will give you 10 bars of 10×3cm. When you are ready to serve, garnish with fresh raspberries.
