• Raw cane 320g
    • Egg yolks 369g
    • All-purpose flour 172g
    • Unsalted butter 98 g
    • Cocoa powder 74 g
    • Egg whites 369 g

    Combine the raw cane sugar (1) and egg yolks until they have blanched. Add the warm melted butter.

    Beat the egg whites with the raw cane sugar (2) and then add them in.

    Let the mixture lose some of its air bubbles as you add in the sifted dry ingredients. Put 1.2kg into each frame and bake for 10 minutes at 340°F (170°C).

    • Unsalted butter 237g
    • Raw cane sugar 237g
    • Hazelnut flour 289g
    • All-purpose flour 237g

    Mix all the ingredients with the cold cubed butter. Stop mixing as soon as a dough forms. Push the streusel
    through a coarse-mesh sieve to break it into pieces. Bake at 330°F (165°C) for approx. 20 minutes.

    • Hazelnut streusel 448g
    • Similarly sized roasted hazelnuts 95g
    • Hazelnut praliné 165g
    • Hazelnut paste 70g
    • Unsalted butter 60g
    • NOROHY coffee bean paste 65g
    • VALRHONA Jivara 40% chocolate 117g

    Pour all the ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer, and add the streusel while it is still warm.

    Mix thoroughly. Roll the mixture to a depth of 4mm between 2 sheets. Freeze, then cut the crisp to the same size as the sponge.


    Soak the sponge pieces in lukewarm Arabica coffee.

    • Whipping cream 400g
    • NOROHY Madagascan vanilla beans 2
    • Egg yolks 100g
    • Sugar 60g
    • Bloomed gelatin (hydrated in 6 times its weight in water) 30g
    • NOROHY coffee bean paste 30 g
    • Mascarpone 250 g

    Scrape the vanilla beans and infuse them in the hot cream for 15 minutes. Strain to remove the vanilla pieces, then
    reheat. Blanch the egg yolks and sugar. Pour the hot cream into the blanched mixture and combine the two.

    Cook like you would a custard at 180°F (82°C). Add the bloomed gelatin, followed by the coffee paste. Mix and pour into the mascarpone. Blend, then strain one last time. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours


    Roast the hazelnuts at 300°F (150°C) for 20 minutes. At the same time, make a dry caramel with the sugar.

    Pour the caramel onto the hazelnuts and let it cool completely.

    Blend the praliné, taking care not to let its temperature rise above 120°F (50°C) so that it doesn’t separate. Add the coffee paste and set aside the praliné.


    Heat the milk and sugar. Add the bloomed gelatin. Pour the cold liquid creams into the mixture, blending them
    all the while until perfectly combined. Add the coffee paste, blend again and strain. Refrigerate for 12 hours


    Heat the glaze and water and add the coffee paste. Strain the mixture and spray it onto the frozen gâteaux.

    • VALRHONA Jivara 40% chocolate As needed

    Temper the milk chocolate. Spread out a small quantity between 2 guitar sheets using a rolling pin. Wait for the chocolate to start to set, then cut it into elongated «S» shapes. Leave to set completely.

    • Water 125g
    • Sugar 168g
    • 30°Brix syrup 100g
    • Coffee beans 175g

    Bring the syrup to a boil. Add the coffee beans. Take the pan off the heat and stir until the beans are completely
    coated with syrup. Let the syrup caramelize. Pour the beans out onto a non-stick mat. Blend into a powder. Store in a dry hot cupboard.


    The biscuits and crunchy biscuits are detailed with a cookie
    cutter, then the creams and compotes are poached on top,
    then smoothed to give a clear, pure shape, like an oblong

    To finish, the bases of these entremets are dipped in the
    whipped cream. This reverses the classic process, as the
    mousse/cream is added last and the finished cake is obtained
    without having to go through the freezing and unmoulding

    Place the steeped cocoa sponge on top of the crisp. Use a
    plain round nozzle to pipe the coffee mascarpone cream
    onto the edges of the sponge only. Pipe the coffee praliné
    into the center. Top with coffee mascarpone cream. Smooth
    into an oblong shape. Freeze, then beat the coffee Crème
    Sublime on a low speed. Hold the desserts upside-down to
    dip the frozen desserts in the cream. Use a heated melon
    baller to make a hollow in the cream. Freeze again. Spray
    with hot coffee glaze. Fill the hollow with praliné. Decorate
    using the chocolate decoration sprinkled with caramelized
    coffee powder.
