vanilla bean yogurt panna cotta, mango gelee, mango mousse, mango coulis & torched mango cubes - a prelude to making more complex and multi-component desserts. after months of making just macarons, i'm beginning to miss french patisserie.
the reason why i chose this dessert is coz i've never really had much luck with mango so i just wanna give it another try. i've always been using phoon huat's mango puree and tho' i hated the smell and taste, there was no other options unless i'm willing to puree my own mangoes, but i'm not very keen to do it. therefore i decided to invest in more expensive puree this time, ravifruit's mango puree which cost me $16 a kg. its really good and i'm sticking to this brand in future.
despite its layers this dessert is pretty simple to make. i've made the strawberry version using cannelle et vanille's recipe and i really like it when dessert recipes call for sheet gelatine instead of powdered ones. sheet gelatine is so much easier to use! this recipe is also easy to variate and i think i'm gonna do a cassis version one soon. should look very pretty with the purple hues.
