Vanilla Sauce For Soaking

485g whole milk
340g caster sugar
8 vanilla beans
1360g whipping cream 35% fat
390g egg yolks

Heat the milk with the sugar and vanilla beans. Mix the egg yolks with the cream. Combine the two mixtures and set aside in the refrigerator.

Praliné Ice-Cream

1000g whole milk
30g fat-free skim milk powder
80g caster sugar
90g atomized glucose
11g whipping cream 35% fat
6g combined stabilizer

Carefully weigh out the ingredients. Mix the stabilizer with 8g of the sugar. Pour the milk into a saucepan and heat. At 25°C, add the skim milk powder. At 30°C, add the remaining sugar and glucose. At 40°C, fold in the cream. Slowly pour the hot liquid onto the melted praliné and stir in the center to create an elastic texture with a glossy appearance, signifying the emulsion process is underway. At 45°C, add the stabilizer/sugar mixture. Pasteurize at 85°for two minutes and then chill rapidly to 4°C. Stir the mixture if possible to break down a maximum of fat. Leave to rest for a minimum of 12 hours. Blend and churn at between -6°C and -10°C. Store in the freezer at -18°C.

Lemon Praliné Sauce

Pour a little cold water on the praliné and mix vigorously. Initially, the mixture will separate.

Add the zests and set aside in the refrigerator.

Candied Nuts

15g water
