Method
  • 1. FOR THE PASTRY:

    Preheat the oven to 200'C.

    Cut discs from the puff pastry sheet using a pastry cutter or knife. Place the discs between two sheets of baking parchment and two baking trays to stop the pastry rising. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Remove from the trays and allow to cool.

  • 2. FOR THE CREME DIPLOMAT:

    Place the milk in a pan with the vanilla bean paste and warm gently. Meanwhile whisk together the egg, yolk, cornflour and sugar in a bowl. Pour over the warm milk, mixing well and return to the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute whisking continuously. Pour into a tray and place in the fridge to cool.

    Whip the double cream to ribbon stage and fold into the cooled custard. Place in a piping bag.

    Pick and finely slice half of the mint. Mix gently with the raspberries and sugar and leave to macerate for atleast 15 minutes.

  • 3. FOR THE RASPBERRIES:

    Pick and finely slice half of the mint. Mix gently with the raspberries and sugar and leave to macerate for atleast 15 minutes.

    Build the mille-feuille with alternate layers of pastry, raspberries and cream. Dust with icing sugar and finish the plate with more raspberries and any juices from the fruit.
