Chestnut flavoured desserts are much more common in France, in fact it was after having a divine chestnut mousse at a restaurant that I was inspired to start using the ingredient. The problem however is finding the chestnut puree in South London, I've only come across it once in a supermarket near me and I guess it wasn't popular as I haven't seen it since - I'll be stocking up on my next trip to France.
Raspberry and Mango Entremet
For my first blog post I'd like to share a recipe for one of my favourite layer cakes which combines the beautiful and delicate flavours of raspberry, mango and vanilla. It always goes down a treat with family and friends, and is a wonderful way to end a special occasion.
