Step By Step

Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and place over a pan of simmering water to melt. Make sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water. When the chocolate has melted, stand the bowl on a cold surface to cool down slightly.

Pour the cream into a large bowl and whisk until soft peaks form.

Place 2 tablespoons of cream in the melted chocolate and gently fold together, then fold the chocolate mixture in the rest of the cream. At the end, gently fold in the black pepper and the chopped mint.

Share the mixture between six tall Champagne glasses (capacity of about 70ml)

Chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes, then serve decorated with the reserved mint leaves.

I love recipes that require just a few good-quality ingredients and are simple to make yet really have the ‘wow factor’, such as this pasta dish with mussels. You don’t have to use the bottarga - the dish stands alone without it - but a Sardinian cook would almost certainly grate it over the top of the finished dish.

This recipe uses frozen chestnuts so availability will not be an issue.
