Add all the loose ingredients to the whipped meringue and mix gently.

Spread on a 30 x 40 cm baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

Bake in the oven at 170°C for about 12 to 15 minutes.

Crunch layer

Melt the chocolate and combine it with the almond paste.

Add the feuilletine and raspberry powder and mix.

Spread the mixture thinly on top of the baked dacquoise and freeze.

Cut out circles of biscuit (4.5 cm in diameter).

Cherry jam

Mix the sugar with the pectin.

Soak the gelatine in cold water.

Combine the cherries with the purée and add the yuzu juice.

Add the pectin with sugar and bring to the boil.

Add the gelatine and mix.

Pour into 3 mm diameter inserts and freeze.

Forest fruit crémeux

Add the soaked gelatine and mix.

Add the blackberry purée and mascarpone and mix everything in a blender until smooth.

Pour into moulds with a diameter of 3cm and freeze.

Pâte à bombe cherry mousse

Boil the sugar and the cherry purée to 118°C.

Pour over the egg yolks and mix on a medium speed setting.

Combine with the whipped cream, stirring gently.

Fill metal rings (diameter 4.5 cm) lined with film around the edge foil.

Chocolate meringue with cocoa beans
