Strawberries, and White Chocolate Cremeux with Velvet Cloud Live Yogurt - as see on Television

Strawberry & White Chocolate Cremuex With Brandy Snap Biscuit

This recipe has been inspired (well copied really) from Chef Martin O Donnell of the fabulous Blackrock Cottage in Salthill Galway. He cooked it on the Television on Ireland AM on Saturday 25th May. Although chefs are not supposed to mention any brands, Martin recommended a nice thick Irish yogurt and what did he have visible for all to see ? You guessed it a big pot of Velvet Cloud Sheep's Milk Yogurt


White chocolate cremeux

215g of good quality white chocolate

110g fresh cream

185g Velvet Cloud Live Natural Yogurt

A tub of bee pollen

Ingredients Brandy Snap Biscuit:

100g butter

100g golden syrup

100g sugar

100g plain flour

1tsp ground ginger

1tbsp lemon juice


1). Melt the white chocolate slowly in a bowl over boiling water and add the cream. Allow this to cool and combine with the Velvet Cloud Live yoghurt gently and place into the refrigerator covered overnight to firm up.

2). Wash the strawberries and remove the green tops, cut in bite sized pieces and place in a bowl.

3). For the biscuit, preheat the oven to 180c. Place the butter, sugar and golden syrup into a pot and warm gently until all is melted. In a bowl add the flour and ginger and make a well, and add the hot ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon for a few minutes until combined. Add the lemon juice and finish mixing.

4). On a baking tray with greaseproof paper add a teaspoon size dollop of mixture and space them out well as they will spread out and cook for 8 minutes until nice and golden, allow to cool slightly and then shape into the desired shape and allow to cool .If not using straight away store in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Martin placed the biscuit discs straight out of the oven onto an empty egg tray to give them the wavy shape. 

5). To plate up, place a tiny amount of the cremeux onto a plate and then sit the brandy snap biscuit on top, this will stop it moving and then place a large tablespoon of the cremeux onto the basket. Next add the chopped strawberries and sprinkle with the bee pollen on top. Garnish with lovely edible flowers.

This one is great if you are entertaining  because you can prepare everything before hand and it takes about 1 min to plate up and looks really impressive as well as tasting fantastic.
