Day 80 – Poires Religieuses – Mon 14th May

Chef Nicolas took us today for the patisserie demonstration and chef Christophe for the practical.

The cake today was a poires religieuses. A ring was lined on the sides and base with a layer of chocolate sponge, brushed with caramel, then covered with a chocolate mousse with diced caramelised pears mixed in, another disk of sponge, more mousse, then finished with a chocolate glaze. The top was decorated with piped white chocolate, a fanned caramelised pear and a white and dark chocolate pear shape.
