Ingredients

Chocolate sheet:
Cocoa nib cream:
Port sauce:
For cocoa nib tuiles:

Directions

To make the chocolate sheet: In a saucepan, mix the cream, water, sugar, and carageenan. Add the melted chocolate and bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Pour through a chinois onto an acetate-lined quarter sheet pan. Let set.;

To make the cocoa nib cream: Bring 1 cup of the cream to a boil in a saucepan with the cocoa nibs. Simmer for 5 minutes, and then pour into a blender and blend well. Transfer to a bowl and add the gelatin.

In a medium bowl, whip the whites and sugar to medium peaks. Fold the whites into the cocoa nib mixture. Whip the remaining 1 cup cream to soft peaks and fold into the nibs-egg white mixture. Pour onto an acetate lined quarter sheet pan.

To make the port sauce: In a small saucepan, simmer the port with the cloves, cinnamon, star anise, and allspice until it reduces to a syrup consistency.;

To make the cocoa nib tuiles: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Grind the isomalt, cocoa nibs, and shortbread cookies into a fine powder. Sift onto a parchment paper-lined sheet tray. Bake for 7 minutes. Let cool slightly and cut into desired shape.

To assemble: Gently place the chocolate sheet atop the cocoa nib cream sheet. Using a ring cutter, cut out a circle or square. Top with a similar size cocoa nib tuile. Garnish with a few fresh raspberries dressed in the port sauce.
