Preparation steps

  1. Basque pastry

    Beat the egg yolks, caster sugar and salt until pale. Stir in the softened butter, lemon zest and vanilla. Scrape down and add the sifted flour and baking powder. Roll out to 6 mm. Cut out and bake at 170°C for 12 minutes.

  2. Vanilla Chantilly cream

    Bring the milk and sugar to the boil. Add the scraped vanilla pod and infuse in the milk for 20 minutes. Strain and bring to the boil. Add the gelatine mass and pour over the mascarpone. Blend while adding the cold cream.

  3. Pastry cream base

    Infuse the vanilla pod for 10 minutes in the liquids that have been brought to the boil with the first part of the sugar. Beat the egg yolks, the second part of the sugar, the powdered pastry cream and the flour. Remove the vanilla pod and cook the pastry cream for 2 minutes at boiling point. Add the butter and smooth out. Remove to a cling film covered baking tray and cool quickly.

  4. Almond butter

    All the ingredients must be tempered and the butter must be softened. Cream all the ingredients using the paddle attachment. Set aside for assembly.

  5. Strawberry confit

    Heat the strawberry purée and the frozen strawberries to 40°C and then add the sugar that has been mixed with the pectin and agar-agar. Bring the mixture to the boil for 1 minute, then add the gelatine mass and the lime purée. Leave to cool to 4°C and then blend. Make the mixture with the strawberry brunoise.

  6. Assembly

    Bake the Basque pastry in the moulds coated with butter and brown sugar. Once cooked and cold, sprinkle the pastry with snow sugar and make a strip of almond butter. Pipe spheres of Chantilly cream on the outside and then fill the inside with the strawberry confit mixture. Add the fresh strawberries.

  7. Finish

    Decorate with daisy petals, atsina cress and wild strawberries.
