Softness, taste and a pinch of creativity gives to the Panettone a new consistency.
Alberto Basso, chef and patron of the restaurant Tre Quarti in Grancona (Vi), wanted to play with Loison Panettone Powder with Ciaculli Late Mandarin (Slow Food Presidium) to make his “Crème brûlée with Mandarin Panettone mousse and raspberry beer spheres“.

- 4 servings
- For the Crème brûlée:
- - 525 g heavy cream
- - 225 g milk
- - 225 g sugar
- - 1 vanilla bean
- - 400 g egg yolk
- For the Panettone mousse:
- - 150 Loison Panettone Powder with Late Mandarin from Ciaculli
- - 400 g milk
- - 4 gelatin sheets
- Beer spheres:
- - 240 g water
- - 250 g sugar syrup
- - 3 gr alginate
- - 450 g raspberry beer
- - Calcium chloride
- Raw brown sugar
- Loison Panettone Powder
- Dehydrated raspberries
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and cook in a water bath, stirring constantly with a whisk without exceeding 85°-86° C, which is the cooking temperature of the egg yolk.
As soon as the custard reaches the right consistency, remove from the stove and then cool in the refrigerator.
Over 85-86°C you get into a cooking temperature of the egg yolk.
Soak the gelatin in cold water until softened, then squeeze. In a saucepan, stir the milk, the gelatin and the Panettone powder. Bring to a boil, then process with a Thermomix until smooth. Transfer to a siphon, load it and refrigerate.
Remove from the refrigerator about an hour before assembling the dish.
Blend the first three ingredients, sift and then vacuum seal to remove air bubbles.
Slowly add the raspberry beer and let stand for about 4 hours.
Draw with a syringe and drip into a solution consisting of 500 g of water and 4 g of calcium chloride.
With the help of a slotted spoon, collect the spheres and wash in running water.
Pour the crème brûlée onto a serving dish, sprinkle with raw brown sugar and torch to caramelize.
Syphon the Panettone mousse and arrange the raspberry beer spheres on top. Dust with Loison Panettone Powder and garnish with dehydrated raspberries.
