Salted Caramel

Ingredients: Salted Caramel

  • 7.1 oz
    Heavy cream 35% fat
  • 0.1 oz
    Madagascar vanilla bean
  • 0.1 oz
    fleur de sel
  • 5.3 oz
    sugar
  • 1.8 oz
    Glucose syrup DE38
  • 3.5 oz
    butter

Preparation: Salted Caramel

  1. Boil the heavy cream, vanilla and salt.
  2. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. Heat up the pan and dry caramelize the sugar little by little.
  4. Wait for the sugar to completely dissolve before adding the next addition of sugar.
  5. Once the sugar has completely caramelized, add the glucose syrup and continue heating until obtaining a deep caramel. You can pre-heat the glucose syrup in the microwave: it will greatly quicken the caramelization process.
  6. Then begin deglazing by adding 3⁄4 of the butter into the saucepan and mix until completely smooth.
  7. Continue the deglazing by adding the heavy cream mixture little by little into the saucepan, while stirring constantly.
  8. Bring the whole preparation to the boil and cook to 106°C (223°F).
  9. Once at 106°C (223°F), remove from the heat, add the remainder of the butter and stir until completely melted.
  10. Strain the infusion into a bowl and remove the beans.
  11. Allow the caramel to slightly cool down and transfer into a sauce gun. Reserve around 100g (3.5 oz) for the caramel marshmallow and the garnish.
  12. Immediately fill the fleximold to 1/3 full and place into the freezer.

Banana Milk Chocolate Crémeux

Ingredients: Banana Milk Chocolate Crémeux

  • 3.5 oz
    Banana purée
  • 0.7 oz
    Gelatin mass (gelatin powder 200 bloom/ water ratio: 1/5)
  • 7.1 oz
    Heavy cream 35% fat
  • As needed
    IBC brown cocoa butter
  • As needed
    IBC creative gold powder

Preparation: Banana Milk Chocolate Crémeux

  1. Melt the chocolate and the cocoa mass together in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time at high power. Stir, and then place back in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds, or until melted. The final temperature of the chocolate should be 40°C (104°F).
  2. In the meantime, heat the banana purée to 30°C (86°F).
  3. Remove the banana purée from the heat, add the gelatin mass and stir until obtaining a completely smooth preparation.
  4. Once completely smooth, pour the banana mixture onto the chocolate preparation and whisk until completely combined.
  5. Whisk in the heavy cream and mix until completely smooth.
  6. Transfer into a piping bag, cut off a small tip to control the flow and immediately pipe into the mold. Make sure to fill the cavities completely.
  7. Using a wooden skewer, trace the mold and make sure that there is no air bubbles.
  8. Use an offset spatula to remove the excess preparation and place into the blast freezer.
  9. Once frozen enough to be easily unmolded, unmold the crémeux and immediately spray non pre-crystallized brown cocoa butter to create a velvet effect. The temperature difference between the cocoa butter and the frozen crémeux will result in a nice velvety surface.
  10. When spraying, it is also important to always keep the same distance and angle between the frozen pastry and the spray gun in order to have an even application of color.
  11. Place gold powder on a brush and gently blow it onto the crémeux.
  12. Place back into the freezer.
