my friend just emailed me the photos she kindly let me take on her camera – here’s how plated dessert week went:
day 1 we made our garnishes, etc. Day 2, we had an hour to get set up before plating began. Here is me at my station, with i beleive was a spiral of pulled sugar.
warm chocolate cake with chocolate sauce, raspberry coulis, creme anglaise, chocolate wafer, cashew brittle, and blackberry sorbet. My bonus ingredient here is the chocolate-dipped gooseberry.
(*was not thrilled with my chocolate sauce application. it was a bit too warm so it ran. should have looked tidier!)
lemon suncake with honey ice cream, lavender tuile, fresh blueberries and candied lemon zest. My bonus ingredient was creme anglaise (and a strawberry garnish for colour).
sorbet with chocolate sauce. I added the rest of the components.
i was so impressed with our entire class, so many of the plates were so inspired and most amazingly, everything turns out so different even though we all start out with the same!
