Chef's Note
You'll be amazed at how quick and easy it is to make this intriguing recipe!

You can garnish the dessert with some vanilla ice cream or sherbet. I've often made this kind of express recipe when I need to improvise a wonderful dessert quickly.

The ragoût is garnished with fresh mint leaves, an almond tuile [lien au lexique] and blackcurrant sorbet in an almond tulipe.
