Poached plums with puff pastry, vanilla custard, chamomile and chocolate crunch

Serves 10

Baked Plums

  • 0,5                  Gelatine leaf
  • 5                     Plums
  • 60 g                Maple syrup
  • 60 g                Shiso juice

Soak the gelatine in cold water.Divide the plums lengthwise and remove the stones. Vacuum seal the plums with the liquids and the gelatine (without the water). Bake for 10 mins in a water bath at 70°C. Take out the plums, peel them and caramelize the surface with a blowtorch. If you do not have access to a vacuum machine you can let the plums simmer in a saucepan instead.


Puff pastry

  • 250 g              Puff pastry dough
  • –                     Raw sugar

Roll out the dough with the sugar thinly using a rolling pin. Bake for 40 mins between two silicone sheets in an oven at 160°C. Let the pastry cool and break it into pieces.


Chocolate crumbs

  • 75 g                Sugar
  • 7,5 g               Water
  • 45 g                Chocolate
  • 2 pinch           Salt

Make a light caramel of the sugar. Add the chocolate off the heat and stir vigorously until the sugar crystallizes and the chocolate crumbles. Pour the crumbles onto a silicone sheet to cool down. Crush into smaller pieces.


Tea foam

  • 3                    Gelatine leaves
  • 10 g                Chamomile
  • 500 g              Water
  • 70 g                Maple syrup

Soak the gelatine in cold water. Bring the water to a boil with chamomile and maple syrup. Cover with cling film and leave to infuse 10 minutes. Add the gelatin (without the water). Strain and pour into a siphon. Load with 2 gas cartridges, shake 40 times and leave to cool in the fridge. This recipe is hard to make without a siphon, but if you would still like to get the taste of chamomile you can let the chamomile infuse with the rhubarb instead.


Crème pâtissière

  • 80 g                Egg yolk
  • 80 g                Sugar
  • 35 g                Corn starch
  • 400 g              Milk Arla®
  • ½                   Vanilla pod
  • 50 g                Cream Arla®

Whisk egg yolk, sugar and corn starch in a bowl. Heat the milk with the vanilla and add it to the egg mixture. Stir until smooth and pour the mixture back into the saucepan. Boil for a few minutes while stirring. Strain the cream onto a silicone sheet, cover with cling film and cool. Whip the cream lightly. Stir the custard and fold it into the whipped cream. Pour the cream into a piping bag and keep in the fridge.


Oxalis ice cream

  • 300 ml            Milk Arla®
  • 100 ml            Sugar
  • 30 g                Glucose syrup
  • 4,4 g               Agar agar
  • 300 ml            Sourcream Arla®
  • 35 g                Oxalis

Bring the milk to a boil with sugar, glucose syrup and agar agar. Cool to room temperature and add the sourcream as well as the oxalis. Run in an ice cream machine.

  • 15                  Berries in season

Pluck the oxalis, place the leaves on wet paper and cool in the fridge. Check the berries and cut them carefully into two.
