»LINCHPIN.CLUB FEAT. GRAND CHEFS« It’s definitely brave to combine white chocolate and liquorice in one dish. But you don’t have to worry about, Rasmus Kofoed is a knowledgeable artist of cookery. With his kitchen style, he has already catapulted his restaurant GERANIUM to one of the worlds best of the international gastronomical scene. So, relax and just take the challenge…
THOUGHTFULNESS CAN BE TASTED
»Geranium is a lucid, light and dynamic kitchen. Our mission is to create meals that involve all our senses – restores, challenges and enriches.«
»Dynamic means force and stands for the living formative forces of nature. These forces are not visible, but their biologic ›footprints‹ are. The effects can be seen if one learns to observe and understand the connections between the formative forces and the physical matter of all organisms.«

Boil the milk and the cream, then remove from the heat.
In a separate bowl whisk the yolks with the sugar.

Thereafter, allow to chill over ice.

LIQUORICE MOUSSE | PART III
Whisk the egg whites and sugar to medium peaks.
Fold the sugared whipped cream [Part II] into the Anglaise-mixture [Part I].
Then proceed to fold the whipped egg whites [Part III] into this mixture.
Pour the liquorice mousse into the cacao butter shells, then freeze until service.
There are really many online shops and suppliers for silicone molds or plastic molds. We have even found similar skull shells.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND...
TOP CHEFS ARE ARTISTS!
Their delicious dishes are artworks, created on the basis of their skills, their creativity and their intuition. Mostly they’re using their recipes as suggestions ore helpful reminders. Some of the published recipes are unworked originals [copies] of the chefs, written in form of notes. These are the ones, that are primarily meant to be a source of inspiration for your practical experiments »at the stove« and should not be regarded as step-by-step cooking instructions.
