In the kitchen, rice, like pasta, is so universal and you can be so creative using it, as we have done here in its frozen form – aromatic and delicious. It is a product with which you can do an incredible amount – puffed, cookies, as ice cream – basically there is nothing you cannot do with rice.

METHOD

1 — MARINATED SHISO PLUM
Boil up the plum and shiso juice briefly. Put the plums and shiso leaves in a sterilized preserving jar. Pour the hot broth over it and put it in the oven at 90°C (194°F) for 4 mins. Leave to infuse for 1 week.

2 — PLUM LACQUER
Recover 150ml of plum shiso broth used for the preserved plums and mix with the Guarzoon.

3 — DARK CHOCOLATE GANACHE (GUANAJA)
Boil the cream and glucose/ invert sugar together. Add the hot liquid to the dark couverture and emulsify. Add the other ingredients and emulsify with a mixer. Allow to crystallise for at least 12 hours in a refrigerated place and then whip until foamy before further processing.

4 — VERBENA CRUMBLES
Make shortcrust pastry from ingredients (part 1) and bake at 180°C (356°F). Let cool and grind in ThermomixTM to fine crumbs. Mix the shortcrust crumbs with the remaining ingredients and then swirl in a colander and add some maltodextrin.

5 — GOAT CURD FOAM
Homogenize together. Fill into an Isi bottleTM and screw in 2 gas capsules.

6 — RICE ICE CREAM
Leave the cream, coconut milk, milk, lemongrass and jasmine rice to stand in a cold place for 2 hours. Bring to a slow boil, strain and add coconut milk to 1.5 kg. Heat 80g skimmed milk powder and 75g invert sugar together with the rice milk in the ThermomixTM to 100 °C (212°F). Mix together 170g sugar and 3g ice stabilizer and add to the ThermomixTM. Blend well and quickly cool down and vacuum pack. Leave the vacuumed ice cream mass to mature on ice for 24 hrs. Blend the ice cream mass for approx. 5 mins in the ThermomixTM until smooth and fill into PacojetTM cups. Blast freeze and then pacotize.

7 — YOGURT-LIME SPONGE
Homogenize    ingredients    in    a thermomixer, fill into an ISI bottleTM and twist in 3 gas capsules. Spray into a paper cup and heat in the microwave at 40 sec. Then tear into pieces and dry in a dehydrator.

8 — PRUNE PLUM ROASTER
Together in a sauté pan briefly swirl and then put it the oven at 200°C (392°F) for about 50 mins. Finely blend and strain the cooled prune plums.

SERVING INSTRUCTIONS
In the upper right quarter of the plate, place a tablespoon of the verbena crumbles. Drizzle on five dots with the ganache. Cut the plums in half, gloss them with the lacquer and centre them on the ganache. Garnish with two pieces of aerial chocolate and a piece of yogurt-lime sponge. Place a dot with the prune plum roaster and drizzle the goat’s curd foam on top. Place a small scoop of rice ice cream on top of the crumbles and garnish with three slightly smaller leaves of red veined dock.
 

This dessert puts the prune plum in the centre, but lines up various, clearly lactic flavours with a third, almost equally prominent element of punchy-sweet white chocolate. It is given additional freshness by the lactic acid of the yogurt and the exotic, rather unfermented acidity of the lime. The delicate palate of Krug Grande Cuvée 170ème Édition complements the aromatic completeness of this dessert.
