From My Kitchen: Dessert for New Year’s Eve |Mont Blanc
It’s the end of the year, and tradition calls for that special dessert for New Year’s Eve: Mont Blanc, a dessert made mainly from chestnuts and formed into a mountain shape, thus the name.I already know many of you are staying in or are hosting parties at home, for that I decided to include the link to this recipe to enable you to get the ingredients on time. Remember this dessert should be consumed within one day.
Mont blanc is a French dessert basically with a soft layer of cake with a pillowy mound of chestnut cream, all topped with strands of sweet nutty chestnut puree. It’s creamy, sweet and earthy with 3 different textures in each bite. So for this dessert we will have the genoise (the cake base), the chestnut puree which can also be store-bought , and the chestnut cream laid on top of the cake.
Bon Apetit and Happy New Year !
