Caramelised white chocolate, local strawberries & almond clusters

Try this dinner party dessert from Darral Warner, head chef at the Ebrington Arms

Ingredients for the Almond Clusters

  • 1 egg white
  • 100g almond flakes
  • Pinch of cinnamon

Method for the Almond Clusters

  • Whisk up the egg white, add a tablespoon of sugar and whip till firm
  • Dust the almonds with cinnamon and fold into the whipped egg white
  • Spread onto a baking tray and bake at 170°C for 8-10 minutes
  • Leave to cool and break into pieces

Ingredients for the Caramelised White Chocolate

  • 340g white chocolate
  • 400g double cream
  • 5g gelatine
  • 10g glucose syrup
  • 200ml milk

Method for the Caramelised White Chocolate

  • Set oven to 140°C
  • Put the chocolate on a baking tray and put in oven for 30 minutes, lightly stirring half way through; the chocolate will start to turn dark brown (almost burnt)
  • Put the gelatine in a little water to soften up
  • Put the milk and glucose syrup in a pan and heat up
  • Add gelatine and stir till dissolved then add the white chocolate and mix. The white chocolate will set so put the mixture into a blender and blend till smooth
  • Pass through a fine sieve into a mixing bowl and leave to cool
  • Lightly whip the cream and when the chocolate mix is cool, fold in the cream carefully
  • Pour into a tub and put in the fridge

To Serve

  • Cut up some strawberries, quenelle (create a swirl with the back of a spoon) the caramelised white chocolate and sprinkle some almond clusters over. Garnish with some fresh mint leaves.

There’s lots of sweetness going on in this delicious dessert so cleanse the palate afterwards with a cooling mint tea. Made from all natural ingredients, this is a delightfully refreshing peppermint infusion to rebalance the senses.
