7th Course: Tarte Sablée à la Châtaigne

***Just Desserts of 2008***

 

Tarte Sablée à la Châtaigne

Et Citron confit, Sabayon au Lagavulin (£17)

(Chestnut and Lemon confit tart, Whisky Sabayon.)

 

Notes: The sablée crust was only a ring. The interior consisted of a ring of chestnut mousse with a core of lemon confit (think lemon curd the consistency of very fine and silky apple sauce). This tart "filling" was topped with a wonderfully strong whiskey sabayon and crowned with a crisp sugar dome.
