1. In a heat-safe bowl, add chocolate (100g) and microwave for 1 minute at 600W. Mix to melt the chocolate. Microwave another 10 seconds if the chocolate is not melted yet. Repeat until melt completely.
2. Spread melted chocolate over the parchment paper thinly and put it freezer until firm. Let it leave until ice cream is ready.
Making the ice cream
3. In a bowl add egg yolk. Pour the milk little by little, and mix. Add sugar and mix. Transfer the milk mix into a small pan and heat up to 75~80℃ over medium heat, turn the heat to low and simmer for 3min, stirring occasionally to avoid burning.
4. Using a fine mesh filter (your usual sieve will do), strain the milk into a heat-safe bowl, then add inverted sugar and mascaporpone. Mix well to melt competely. Let it cool down completely in the water bath.
5. Once the milk mixture is cooled completely, add heavy cream. Mix well.
6. Transfer the ice cream mixture into your compressor ice cream maker and let it run according to manufacturer's instructions. It should take 40~60min, depending on how cold the mixture is. In case, you should let it run until the mixture turns thick and creamy.
7. Bring out the chocolate from the freezer and crush them to even smaller pieces. Transfer the ice cream to a storage container, adding the chocolate flakes in. Mix them together. Chill until it has set!
2 tbsp your favorite nuts ( I used Praline here) - crushed
1. Line the bottom of a 18 cm circle cake pan (removable bottom) with parchment paper.
2. Process flour, almond powder, sugar, salt and cocoa powder in a food processor for a few seconds and then add butter. Process until mixture becomes crumbly : do not process too much as the dough should be crumbly.
3. Spread the crumbs onto the baking sheet and bake for about 25 mins at 160℃. Remove from the oven. While the crumbs is hot, press them into the bottom, using a spatula. Set the cake pan aside.
4. In a bowl, add the heavy cream and whip to soft peak, set aside.
5. In an another bowl, add mascarpone and sugar. Mix well until soft. Add nutella and mix together well.
6. Soak gelatin sheet in water for a few minutes, then remove from the water and put in a microwave-safe cup. Microwave for about 15 sec at 600W. Melt it completely and pour over the mascarpone mixture (step 5). Mix well.
7. Add whipped cream (step 4) and mix gently with a spatula.
8. Pour the cream mixture into the cake pan. Flat the top of cake and sprinkle crushed nuts over the cake. Chill it until it has set.
1. In a bowl add cabbage and 1 tsp salt, let sit for about 15 minutes. Set aside.
2. In a bowl, add all the ingredient A and cabbage (drained well from #1) and knead the mixture with hand until it becomes pale in color and sticky.
3. Place a gyoza wrapper on a cooking board. Use a teaspoon to take a small amount of filling and put it in the center of the wrapper. Wet the edge of wrapper with fingertip. Make pleats on one side, then fold over and seal to close. Continue with the rest of the gyoza wrappers until you used all filling.
4. Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium to high heat. Remove from the heat once to place gyoza, and cook them until golden brown and crispy on the bottom.
5. Pour boiled water (about 100ml), cover pan with the lid and let it steam over medium heat until all water evaporates. Repeat with the remaining gyoza.
6. For the dipping sauce, mix all the ingredient in a small bowl.
7. Place a plate on top of gyoza. Flip the pan upside down. Cook the remaining gyoza.
1. Remove the cream layer inside the oreo cookies, and crush oreos in a blender or food processor until you have fine crumbs. Set aside.
2. In a bowl whisk together eggs, sugar and salt using a egg wishk. Pour the milk into the egg mixture slowly, gradually and mix well.
3. Add the sifted flour and black cocoa powder and mix well until the batter is integrated.
4. Strain the crepe mixture through a fine sieve. Add the melted butter and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for about 30min to 1h or even overnight.
Cooking the crepes :
5. Heat about 20 cm non-stick pan on medium heat. Once the pan is hot, brush with oil and remove the excess with a paper towel (a thin application, only the first time is fine). Pour enough batter to cover the bottom of the pan and swirl it to coat evenly. Once the batter is dry and the edges start to dry, flip the crepe with your hand. Let it cook on the other side for a few seconds. Then transfer to a plate to cool down. Repeat the same until the batter finished.
6. Once cooled completely, use a 18 cm round plate or cake bottom as a guide and cut off crepe in excess.
Putting it all together :
7. Whip chilled Whipping Cream (400ml) for a few second, add granulated sugar (60g), and beat until stiff peaks form.
NOTE : if your cream is less than 35% fat, then I recommend you to add whipped cream stabilizer (I used "cremfix" here). In that case, mix cream stabilizer to the sugar ahead of this step. Add when your cream is reaching soft peak.
8. Now spread a good amount of cream evenly over one crepe. Cover with another crepe and repeat until all have been used. Finally cover the cake with cream (sides too).
9. Sprinkle oreo powder over the top and sides. Let chill in the fridge for a few hours until it has set.
