L'ambroisie chocolate tart

Recommended Posts

Has anyone successfully made this at home before? The recipe from their cookbook isn't descriptive enough and I've had moderate success with it but the sabayon texture just looks much more aerated in the ambroisie version

Interesting - researched and not finding a lot online - would you be able to PM me the recipe you do have 'cause I'd love to play with it?

Probably it's just a matter of the kind of chocolate. I suppose you are using a chocolate with more cocoa mass and less cocoa butter than the one used in the original. Is it written what kind of chocolate they are using, besides the %? Cluizel?

This is Continued from a previous post, thought id start fresh.     Has anyone successfully replicated this ?  I have been doing so much research about this and cant seem to find any concrete trials of success.   I know there was a chef in Kuala Lumpur who did it w an isi but cant find an exact method.   Can anyone help with this ?

Here you go. Lucky you - it’s been published in the French Elle.

That's the same recipe that I played with above. Although I see in my notes that @adey73 provided some input and mentions a 2012 version that has -

100 grams 70% chocolate
4 yolks
2 whole eggs
60 grams sugar

It doesn't seem too complicated.  If you can make pastry, ganache and sabayon you should be able to do it no problem. 

 

Just watch it like a hawk in the oven at the end.

This well travelled gourmet has some interesting insights into the Pacaud tart.

 

" a hallmark of the original pie is a slightly solid layer on top of the fluffy, shaving-foam-like centre and a thin molten layer on the bottom."

 

and

 

"the recipe in L’Ambroisie’s cookbook is not the complete one."

      I have Volumes 1 ,2 and 4 of Jean-Pierre Wybauw's Great Chocolate books are for sale.
       
      The books are in great shape!  There is some tape on the corner of the front of volume 1 that I used to keep it together after a drop.  Volume 1 is also autographed by the author (See pics below).
       
      I'm asking $150 for the lot OBO.
       
      Let me know if interested or if you have questions

      Hi guys. 
       
      Came across these amazing bon bons on Instagram. How would you say I could replicate the design?
       
      thabks.

      Hoping for some help.  I accidentally melted an old mould that is very important to us and I've had no luck searching around for a replacement.  
      If anyone knows where I could buy one - or even has one to spare they would be willing to sell - please send me a message.
      The mould (label attached below) was originally labelled as "Easy as ABC gelatin mould", although we just call it the alphabet mould.  Yes there are lots of alphabet moulds around, including new silicone ones, but we need the specific designs on this one to replace the one I damaged.  Depending on the cost, I would consider paying for postage internationally (to Australia).
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello everyone,
      I am in the process of locating a commercial kitchen space to rent in order to produce my chocolates on a larger scale, for retail and wholesale.  The challenge is that I have not been able to locate a space that has air conditioning or any kind of temperature control.  Even if everything else in the facility is perfect, that's the one issue that keeps coming up.
       
      Can anyone provide guidance regarding the feasibility of working in a non temperature controlled space, and if there are any work arounds?  I'd have full access to fridges, freezers, etc...
       
      Thanks in advance for any help or experiences you can share!

      Has anyone ever worked with or made buttercream candies? 
       
      As far as I can tell they appear to be simply fondant sugar with the addition of butter.  
       
      Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks
