First of all strain the inside of the dessert with the coconut, mango and lemon cream for about 1.5 cm; cool quickly in the blast chiller. In the meantime cook the caramelised apple and, once drained, place them on top of the cream. Put the mixture in the blast chiller. Prepare the almond smooth cream, fill half of the mould and insert the frozen inside part; close with the crumble previously frozen. Chill the whole mixture and, when it’s well cold, spray a chocolate- based white mixture with the gun. Then, fill the inside with the fresh pineapple. Put an orange sugar ring after having placed the pineapple tartare, previously garnished with golden leaves and raspberry, in the inside.
