The Tatler Menu: Cook at home with Britain's Best Chefs
Collection of 4 courses
Chef Pâtissier Benoit Blin teaches you how to make the signature Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons restaurant dessert Le Café Crème, famed for being a notoriously challenging (but delicious) Raymond Blanc dessert.
The Le Café Crème is a Raymond Blanc dessert made up of several different patisserie techniques - a coffee parfait and kirsch sabayon, a shaped coffee sponge, coffee caramel, chocolate sauce, a chocolate ganache, all served in a chocolate cup with a handle.
This ground-breaking dessert took Raymond Blanc six months to perfect before it was ready to grace the tables of his restaurant Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons. The dish has been a complete triumph, and we’ve convinced Benoit to teach us the secrets behind this delectable dessert, as well as showing us his new twist on a delicious classic.
You will learn to make Raymond Blanc’s infamous Café Crème and the chocolate coffee cup that you will present it in, to your astonished and delighted, friends and family.
This course is part of the Tatler Dinner Party Menu collection of online cooking courses taught by legendary chefs.
Every student is different but in general we think the whole course will take around 4 hours 40 minutes to complete including:
A full list of ingredients is included in the class notes, but on top of chocolate and ingredients, if you're making the dessert you'll need a sugar thermometer, dariole moulds, a blast freezer, acetate sheets, paper piping cornet.
The course is suitable for all students, but is most suitable for experienced cooks or professional chefs who want to learn about this signature dessert and the patisserie techniques used to create it.
