Dinner parties are all about creating unforgettable experiences, and what better way to end a delicious meal than with a
show-stopping dessert? We have a decadent treat in store for you and your guests that combines the French elegance of a giant croissant from Philippe Conticini elegantly filled with Pistachio gelato, with a generous drizzle of Pistachio Creme, and a dusting of icing sugar for that irresistible “Je ne sais quoi.”
Now, if you’ve crossed paths with Philippe Conticini’s haven in South Kensington, London, you’re in for a treat. You see, Conticini is the kind of pastry magician whose creations redefine the term “food artistry.”
But why, you might ask, did we choose his giant croissant as the pièce de résistance for our dessert extravaganza? We could not resist joining in on the TikTok sensation featuring this croissant and our gelato. The viral videos showcasing the dessert’s
jaw-dropping appearance and mouthwatering taste inspired us to give it a go and share it with our dinner party guests.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients Before the artistry begins, gather your ingredients. Ensure that your croissant is at room temperature, and let that gelato soften just a tad for the perfect assembly.
Step 2: Prepare the Croissant Now, let’s handle that croissant like the work of art it is. Slice it horizontally, and you’ll unveil the canvas of buttery perfection from Philippe Conticini himself.
Step 3: Add Remeo Pistachio Gelato Generously scoop Remeo Pistachio Gelato onto the croissant’s lower half. Be lavish; you’re creating a masterpiece here. Lage dollops are perfect, do not spread the gelato, but try and achieve a chunkier distribution
Step 4: Create the Croissant Sandwich Place the top half of the croissant back onto the gelato-covered bottom half, creating a croissant sandwich. Press gently to make sure the two halves adhere to each other.
Step 5: Drizzle with Pistachio Cream Now comes the pièce de résistance: that jar of exquisite pistachio cream. Drizzle it over your dessert creation, letting it flow gracefully down the sides. It’s a saucy performance worthy of your soirée.
Step 6: Dust with Icing Sugar For the finishing flourish, wield a fine-mesh sieve like a maestro. Sprinkle a delicate veil of icing sugar over the entire dessert. It’s not just sweet; it’s a visual crescendo.
Step 7: Garnish with Crushed Pistachios Sprinkle a handful of crushed pistachios over the top of the croissant gelato dessert. This not only adds a delightful crunch but also brings out the nutty pistachio flavour.
Step 8: Serve and enjoy! Slice your croissant gelato dessert into portions, ensuring each serving has a perfect balance of croissant, gelato, pistachio cream, and garnishes. Plate them beautifully and watch your guests’ faces light up with delight as they indulge in this exquisite treat.
At Remeo Gelato, we hold quality and culinary artisanry in the highest regard. We believe that every scoop, every bite should be a symphony of flavour and texture, an experience that lingers in the memory long after the last morsel has vanished.
