French Klassik Garden from Christophe Michalak

This recipe’s simplicity is almost sublime: from ultra-crisp to infinitely smooth, with a lychee-infused Chantilly cream that is both distinctive and light. Working with cream relies on a pastry chef’s unique skill! Here, it enhances the flavour of all the other ingredients.
