Preparation steps

  1. Cocoa sweetened paste

    Combine the butter with all dry ingredients. Add eggs and softly combine to obtain a dough. Spread at 3 mm between two polyethylene sheets and roll out oval shortbreads with a finger die-cutting. Bake between 2 silpats at 160°C during 20 minutes, ventilated oven

    Mix the kumquat puree, sugar, whole eggs and egg yolks. Heat the mix, stirring continuously. Add the diced butter then add the hydrated-dryed-melted gelatin. Pour the mix on the cooled chocolate biscuit. Freeze and roll out sticks to fit in the finger moulds.

  4. Kumquat mousse

    Hydrate, dry, melt the gelatin. Heat the kumquat puree and add the gelatin. Whip the liquid cream until a foamy mixture is obtained and gradually add to the puree/gelatin mix. Pipe in finger moulds.
