Tiramisu Entremet

tiramisu

Italy, coffee and mascarpone cheese go hand in hand – that’s always my first thought whenever I think of Italian cuisine and culture. I’m not a huge coffee lover though, I don’t drink it unless I’m in immediate need of an energy boost, but I love its aroma early in the morning and its flavor in desserts. And I love mascarpone cheese as well – the kind of love that gets close to addiction sometimes. Therefore when I was asked to come up with an Italian inspired dish, Tiramisu was my first thought. But since I like thinking outside of the box, I took the basic idea of a Tiramisu and elevated it to the next level.

These miniature cakes were born after a few brainstorming sessions and many sketches. My Tiramisu has a genoise bottom layer, brushed with coffee syrup, topped with an airy, rich mascarpone mousse, followed by a denser, but just as creamy coffee cremeux. The next layer consists of a chocolate mousse studded with bits of praline powder. The glaze felt like the most natural thing to use for these cakes and even though it has an intense taste, it doesn’t overpower the final taste of the cakes at all. As decoration, I decided to go with a chocolate ring and an Amaretto chocolate truffle, plus a touch of edible gold leaf which I find utterly elegant and truly the only thing a cake like this needs to look stunning.

There’s a few things I totally loved about these cakes – the first one is the delicate coffee aroma. Even if you’re not a coffee drinker, you’ll still enjoy this cake – the flavor is delicate and mild and it only brings out the best of chocolate. Another thing I totally loved and was quite impressed with was the praline powder which can easily become a praline paste if you continue pulsing it in the food processor, adding 1-2 tablespoons of vegetable oil while doing so. It’s so delicious! Both powder and paste and be used in a variety of desserts so it’s a great thing to have around. And last but not least, I loved making them – from the first idea to a sketch then a dessert, everything was fun and so enjoyable. True passion, isn’t it?!

Mini torturi cu ciocolata si cafea sau Tiramisu my way

tiramisu

Cand ma gandesc la Italia si aromele ei, cafeaua e printre primele lucruri care imi vin in aminte, urmata indeaproape de Amaretto. Sunt doua arome care ma duc cu gandul imediat la bucataria si cultura italiana si ador sa le combin, cu toate ca nu sunt o bautoare de cafea. In mod ciudat insa, iubesc aroma cafelei proaspat facute si imi place enorm sa inspir aroma de cafea din borcanul sigilat in care isi tine mama cafeaua macinata. Si mai ales, imi place felul in care cafeaua eleveaza aroma ciocolatei, motiv pentru care am stiut din prima ce voi face cand am vazut provocarea #romacuelectrolux lansata de Electrolux. Tu gatesti un preparat de inspiratie italiana, ei te trimit la Taste of Roma in perioada 18-20 septembrie sa iei parte la workshop-uri si demonstratii interactive cu cei mai renumiti chefi ai orasului. How interesting and fun does that sound?! O provocare e bine-venita oricand si oricum, te scoate din rutina si iti traseaza un tel, te scoate din zona de comfort si se si poate incheia cu o experienta frumoasa la Roma. Nu o puteam rata!

Pe masura ce citeam articolul parca simteam in nari parfumul cafelei si imi imaginam ce gust bun ar avea intr-un desert cu ciocolata si mascarpone. Inspiratia mea pentru acest desert a fost celebrul desert italian Tiramisu – am pastrat ideea unui tiramisu in sensul in care am folosit mascarpone (nu pot exprima in cuvinte iubirea mea pentru branza asta atat de cremoasa si bogata), cafea si am elevat totul cu ciocolata si pralina fina cu alune de padure. Glazura e de ciocolata cu o aroma subtila de cafea, iar pentru decor am optat pentru o trufa de ciocolata neagra cu Amaretto si ciocolata din plin.

Intr-un fel sau altul, tiramisu nu prea mai are nevoie de introducere. E un desert traditional italian al carui gust e inconfundabil datorita combinatiei dintre cafea si mascarpone, totul acoperit cu un strat subtire de cacao. Se pare ca desertul ar fi originar din regiunea Veneto si reteta e destul de reteta, intrucat nu s-au gasit marturii ale acestui tip de desert in cartile de bucate de dinainte de 1960. Reteta originala se pare ca nu avea decat cateva ingrediente de baza: galbenusuri, mascarpone, cafea, piscoturi, zahar si cafea, fara albusuri si fara frisca, dar si fara Marsala sau alt lichior. Pornind de la aceasta reteta de baza au aparut apoi tot felul de variante, dar pentru mine tiramisu trebuie sa contina in primul rand cafea si mascarpone, fara cele doua nu putem vorbi de un astfel de desert.

Ce mi-a placut enorm la acest desert e felul in care componentele se complementeaza unele pe celelalte. Cand planific un desert si mi-l imaginez, fac schite si incerc sa imi dau seama din ceea ce am facut sau gustat anterior, daca aromele merg impreuna.. si nu aveam nicio indoiala ca acestea sunt a match made in heaven, dar mi-a depasit si mie orice asteptari. Baza e un genoise imbogatit cu putin unt, insiropat usor cu un sirop gros de cafea. Urmeaza un mousse delicat, aerat si vanilat de mascarpone, apoi un cremeux de cafea care e usor mai dens decat un mousse, dar la fel de cremos si se topeste in gura. Urmatorul strat e un mousse de ciocolata in care am adaugat o pudra fina de pralina (caramel si alune de padure). Ca fapt divers, daca continuati sa pulsati pralina in vasul robotului de bucatarie cateva minute, adaugand 2 linguri de ulei vegetal, veti obtine o pasta absolut delicioasa. Sigur, si pasta merge intr-un mousse (chiar foarte bine), dar eu mi-am dorit in acest desert si o textura crocanta, ori pudra de pralina cu bucati mai mici si mai mari de zahar caramelizat si alune de padure exact asta face.

tiramisu

Pralina

Glazura, desi ciocolatoasa, nu e atat de intensa incat sa acopere celelalte arome. Ba dimpotriva, fiind aromata cu putina cafea, e exact ce are nevoie desertul pentru a se apropia de perfectiune, mai ales ca e si atat de lucioasa si eleganta. Trufa de ciocolata neagra si Amaretto e doar cireasa de pe tort pentru acest desert de inspiratie italiana.

Cat despre chefs de la care mi-ar placea nu sa smulg cuvinte de lauda, ci critici cat mai constructive, i-as numi aici pe Luca Montersino si Gabriele Riva, ambii cu o tehnica grozava si o creativitate iesita din comun, ambii modele de urmat pentru orice tanar aspirant la titlul de pastry chef.

{Dulce de Leche Tiramisu} – Tiramisu cu dulce de leche

dulce de leche tiramisu

Having received a few cans of sweetened condensed milk before Christmas has led to a a constant search for recipes that use it. And then it hit me – wait a second, I could turn the sweetened condensed milk into dulce de leche, right?! And I did – and I felt sorry as it tastes so good that i can’t stop eating it! However, I managed to salvage a bit for this tiramisu which is not the classic coffee recipe so not quite a tiramisu, but still one in its essence if we consider the mascarpone based cream. However, it barely matters what it is when you taste it cause God, it’s heavenly! The dulce de leche mascarpone mousse is so rich and creamy, although not low in calories, that you will want a second slice and the chocolate Amaretto syrup balances perfectly, creating a cake to crave for!

The highlight of this tiramisu is, obviously, the dulce de leche mousse. Apart from that, the cake also consists of a buttery Genoise and a chocolate Amaretto syrup used to soak the ladyfingers into. Compared to my entremets, this cake is easy peasy though so don’t be scared by its elements. It’s easily done in 1-2 hours, including the chilling wait time so go for it!

{Dulce de Leche Tiramisu}

Butter Genoise:
  • 5 eggs
  • 105g white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 145g all purpose-flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 30g butter, melted and cooled
Chocolate Amaretto syrup:
  • 50g heavy cream
  • 50g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 150ml milk
  • 1 tablespoon Amaretto
Dulce de leche mascarpone mousse:
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 30g sugar
  • 4g gelatin
  • 20ml cold water
  • 200g mascarpone
  • 200g dulce de leche
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 300ml heavy cream, whipped
  • Plus 10 ladyfingers
Chocolate lace:
  • 100g dark chocolate, melted
  • Plus 100g sugar for the sugar work
Directions:
Butter Genoise:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F - 180C and line a round cake pan - 24cm diameter - with baking paper.
  2. Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  3. Combine the whole eggs with sugar in the bowl of your mixer and mix until the eggs triple their volume, at least 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the vanilla extract then fold in the flour, spoon by spoon.
  5. Take a few spoonfuls of batter into a smaller bowl and mix it with the melted butter. Pour the batter back into the larger bowl and slowly incorporate it with a spatula. This is done because butter is heavier than the batter and tends to sink at the bottom of the bowl, but mixing it aside with a small quantity of batter makes this task easier.
  6. Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake the sponge in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
  7. Allow the sponge to cool in the pan then carefully remove it and level it if needed. Cut the sponge into 2 equal discs and place one of them in your cake ring.
Chocolate Amaretto syrup:
  1. Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate. Mix until melted then add the milk and Amaretto and mix well.
  3. Allow the syrup to cool before use.
Dulce de leche mascarpone mousse:
  1. Combine the gelatine with cold water and let it bloom for 10 minutes.
  2. Mix the egg yolks with sugar into a heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a hot water bath and mix with an electric mixer until stiff and creamy.
  3. Remove the bowl from heat and keep mixing until the egg yolks cool down slightly.
  4. Stir in the melted gelatin then allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.
  5. Add the mascarpone and mix well then stir in vanilla and dulce de leche.
  6. Fold in the whipped cream and divide the mousse in half.
To assemble the cake:
  1. Brush the bottom layer of sponge with chocolate syrup then pour half of the mascarpone mousse over the sponge.
  2. Dip each ladyfinger into the chocolate syrup and arrange them over the mousse.
  3. Top with the remaining mousse and cover with the other half of sponge.
  4. Refrigerate the cake for 1 hour to allow the mousse to set. I put it in the freezer for about 40 minutes as it's much quicker.
  5. Remove the cake from the cake ring and place it on a platter.
Chocolate decoration:
  1. Melt the chocolate over a hot water bath or in the microwave.
  2. Pour the chocolate into a paper cone then lay a large baking paper sheet on your working surface and carefully drizzle it with chocolate.
  3. Carefully wrap it around the chilled cake and place in the fridge to allow to set.
  4. Once set, remove the baking paper and top the cake with a dust of cocoa powder.
Caramel ball:
  1. Melt the sugar until it has an amber color then using a fork, form thin strands of caramel over a large pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. Carefully gather the strands into a ball and place it on top of the cake.

dulce de leche tiramisu


ROMANIAN!

Pentru ca de curand am primit cateva cutii de lapte condensat de la o prietena, in ultimul timp am tot cautat retete cu lapte condensat. Si desi initial imi spusesem ca nu voi incerca sa fac dulce de leche, am cedat tentatiei si am fiert una dintre conserve cateva ore (!!!) pana a devenit un dulce de leche cremos, caramelizat, delicat si care da dependenta. Am mancat cateva linguri aproape inca cald si am pastrat restul epntru acest tiramisu care poate nu o fi un tiramisu traditional, dar e delicios, cremos, aromat.

  2. Cu grija infasurati hartia de copt in jurul tortului si dati la rece cateva minute apoi inlaturati hartia de copt cu grija.
  3. Acoperiti tortul cu cacao neagra.
  4. Pentru firele de caramel, topiti 100g zahar pana are o culoare aurie frumoasa apoi cu o furculita, formati fire subtiri de zahar. Strangeti firele de caramel intr-o bila si decorati tortul.
