Deconstructed Black Forest - PorticoDeconstructed black forest, 70% Valrhona dark chocolate mousse, edible hazelnut soil, cherry coulis and caramel ice cream. Like a playful dessert chef’s literal and visual reimagination of black forest. The leaves, flowers and fruits visually recreate the forest setting, the coldness of the bowl is not unlike the freeze of the night, the crunch of the popping candy and biscuit-esque hazelnut soil provides the necessary sonic imagery of walking in the woods, whilst the bitter chocolate and alcoholic cherries bring a good dose of sex and danger to the proceedings. If a tryst in the forest feels this good, it (almost) justifies the risk of being eaten by those darned wolves. 4/5
