Strawberry tiramisu with a pistachio emulsion

4 people
Red wine
  • Sponge cakes or fingers
  • 250 g Mara des Bois strawberries
  • 250 g mascarpone cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 30° Baume syrup with a touch of marsala or amaretto
  • 5 g agar-agar
  • 20 cl strawberry coulis
  • ½ split vanilla pod

Mix the mascarpone with the sugar and yolks, then blanch and add the vanilla seeds and agar-agar. Whip the firm egg whites and add them to the mixture.

Cut the rolled-out pastry into cakes or fingers. Then, at the bottom of each glass, poach them in the syrup to soak it up all the way through. Add strawberries in quarters along the sides of the glass, mould the mascarpone cream and repeat for another two layers. Finish with a drizzle of strawberry coulis over the top.

Serve a pistachio emulsion on the side, made in the blender with pistachio ice cream, milk and a little crème fraîche.
