About my dish:
Due to the challenge of this competition, you must have frozen blueberries your hero on the dish. The first thing anyone would think about it a classic muffin, however my mind didn’t go there and thought about cheesecakes and mousse and to be presented in a way it hasn’t been shown yet.
I have created a dish that is creamy and light and deep in flavour all natural from the frozen blueberries. My dish starts with an almond crispy biscuit base with a blueberry compote disk in the center of a light and creamy blueberry lemon cheesecake topped with a thin shell of white chocolate. This semi-circle in sitting on top of a rich white chocolate blueberry infused ganache topped with cooked blueberries and mint with a vanilla bean ice cream quenelle on the side.
