Preparation steps

  1. Mandarin sorbet

    Make a syrup with the water and mandarin zests, at 40°C. Add the sugars and stabilisers. Pasteurise at 85°C, then pour onto the frozen mandarin purée and blend. Leave to mature, then turbine.

  2. Mandarin leaf ‘granitea’

    Heat the water to 80°C, then infuse the tea with the mandarin leaves and spices for 3 minutes. Strain, then pour onto the lemon purée and sugar. Pour into a rimmed mould and freeze. Once frozen, scrape into a pre-frozen recipient using a fork.

  3. Mandarin marmalade

    Cut the mandarins into 8, rinse, and blanch by placing them in cold water before bringing to a boil. Drain, rinse and then blanch again – this time using the salt. Drain and rinse. Add the mandarin purée, the vanilla and enough cold water to just cover the mandarins, then cook until soft. Leave to drain for 2 hours without rinsing. Add the sugar and mandarin zests, then blend lightly.

  4. Tea soufflé meringue

    Make a tea powder using a Robot-Coupe. Whisk the egg whites with the caster sugar added in 2 parts. Once the whites are firm, add the icing sugar with the sakura tea powder. Dust with tea before cooking at 120°C for 3 minutes, then at 100°C to dry.

  5. Pear-mandarin condiment

    Zest and supreme the mandarins, then gently combine with the Andros Pear High Fruit Compote.

  6. Assembly

    Slice off the top quarter of the mandarin, remove the pulp using a spoon and press for the sorbet. Once the mandarin has been emptied and frozen, place meringue shards in the bottom of the shell together with a dot of marmalade. Make a pear condiment centre and pipe the mandarin sorbet around it. Finish with the ‘granitea’.
