It was a pretty slow day, mainly because I was running on three hours of sleep; but somehow I was able to come up with a pretty good concept and flavor profile for this dessert.
Dark Chocolate band pre-brushed with Gold Luster Dust
Creme Chantilly flavored with Orange Zest
Tempered Chocolate garnish with Cocoa Nibs
White Chocolate Creme Anglaise
The Plated Dessert (can you see the gold on the surface of the chocolate?)
