Instructions

Step 1: Shortcrust pastry made with cornmeal

In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the blade, knead the butter and add the ingredients in the order given. Mix as little as possible. Wrap in plastic and store in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Roll out the pastry and prick it. Butter a baking ring 8-inch (21-cm) in diameter and 1-inch (2-cm) high, and cut a disk of pastry in that size. Place it on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and leave in the refrigerator for an hour. Bake in a convection oven at 340°F (170°C) for approximately 15 minutes.

Step 2: Chloé’s chocolate ganache

Keep the butter at room temperature. Melt the cooking chocolate in the microwave or in a bain-marie. Heat the raspberry purée, pour a third of it over the cooking chocolate, and mix, starting from the center and then widening the movement, little by little, toward the outside. Repeat the procedure twice with the remainder of the purée and then stir in the butter at 100°F (40°C). Emulsify the ganache using a hand blender and use immediately.
