Assembly and finishing

Assembly: Spread the sponge mixture onto a 40 x 60cm silicone mat. Bake at 355°F (180°C) for 9 minutes. Once the sponge has cooled, use a cutter to cut it into the same sizes as your two silicone molds*, then store in the freezer. Make the confit, then pour into the small quenelle mold. Finish off by adding the sponge. Freeze. Pour 15g of raspberry mousse into each imprint in the large silicone mold. Then insert the frozen confit into the center. Add 10g of mousse and seal off each imprint with the sponge. Freeze. Use a toothpick to dip each quenelle into the glaze and sprinkle with crunchy clusters. Use a spray gun to create a velvet effect. Store in the freezer. Pour the yogurt crémeux into the small quenelle mold and freeze. Make the pink strands by dripping some tempered RASPBERRY INSPIRATION into very cold water. Drain and leave to dry. Prepare the rhubarb confit, raspberry gel, raspberry caviar and shortcrust pastry.Assembly: Decorate one side of the plate with some drizzles of raspberry gel. Put three rectangles of rhubarb confit in place. Then add the quenelles of yogurt crémeux. Add a few shards of pressed shortcrust, 15g of raspberry caviar, the RASPBERRY INSPIRATION strands, and a few fresh raspberries. *Molds used: Pavoni PX074 and PX073.
