St Petersburg Marble cake

Inspirations:

For me luxury means exceptional products. For example, the magnificent green marble of St Petersburg. The museum "Hermitage" is an exceptional place for art and Russian history, the dessert I created represents the simplicity of a green marble piece. It is made with a marble biscuit, lime jelly and coated with lime crémeux with Zéphyr white chocolate.
