Blackcurrant and chestnut verrines


Blackcurrant and chestnut verrines
Blackcurrants and chestnuts and go together really well, as the tang of the one balances the gentle sweetness of the other.

Here they are combined in a verrrine, with a blackcurrant crémeux and chestnut mousse, served with a little sablé biscuit.

Just before serving, stick a sablé biscuit into the top. Serve without delay.
Remarks
You can use a different fruit instead of blackcurrants in the crémeux, but do try to keep to something with a hint of acidity (raspberries, currants, etc.), to contrast with the chestnut flavour.
Keeping
Should be eaten the same day.
