Evocao™ Entremets


I wanted to create an entremet with Evocao at the forefront that was also gluten free, using the chocolate in multiple components (cremeux, mousse, and crumble) with a straight forward cocoa profile. Pairing Evocao with fresh raspberries adds a touch of acidity and freshness, and is also in the spirit of upcycling; the whole raspberry is being used.


Do not heat Evocao above 40°C, when mixing the pate a bombe, the first stage will look thicker than a traditional one.
