orange and white chocolate cups

orange curd
zest + juice of two large oranges
juice of one lemon
2 eggs
100 g sugar
2 tbsp cornflour

put all the ingredients in a pan, whisk until smooth (no lumps of flour)
cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickens and bubbles
leave to cool down

white chocolate mousse
300 ml whipping cream
150 g white chocolate (chopped or chips)
100 ml milk
2x2g gelatin leaves

bloom gelatin in cold water
bring the milk to boil, take off heat, toss in the chocolate and stir until melted and mixed smoothly with the milk
while the mix is still hot, add gelatin and mix until dissolved
whip the cream to soft peaks
add chocolate mix to cream in a few portions, mixing well each time – the best is to use whisk as it helps the aeration of the mousse

white chocolate
freeze-dried raspberries

spoon 1/5 height of the cup of orange curd
fill 3/5 height with white chocolate mousse
leave to set (about 30 min)
decorate with white chocolate pieces – I used homemade triangles – and freeze-dried raspberries (or anything of your choice that adds nice color contrast, eg. pomegranate seeds, dark chocolate shavings)
keep cool before serving
