New cheesecake recipe, with a rather nice texture game.
The cream is ultra smooth and the top gelatinized for a soft appearance but hard at the same time.
Obviously it's not raspberry season at all, I used frozen fruit for this recipe.
For this gelling aspect therefore, we use in pastry "agar agar" but what is it?
Did you know?: The origin of the word is Indonesian-Malay; it is a gelling product, the discovery of which was made in Japan in 1658 by Minora Tarazaemon, and not by Fanny and Walther Hesse (German microbiologists), the latter having discovered the agar agar in 1881.
It is called "kanten" in Japan where it is used in some traditional pastries such as "yōkan" *, or in the form of tokoroten *.
* Youkan is a sweet Japanese pastry made from a jellied Japanese red bean paste.
It looks like a fruit paste.
* Tokoroten is a dish made from the agar agar extracted by boiling certain edible seaweed such as "tengusa" and "ogonori"?
Using a dedicated tool which is the tentsuki, the gelatin is pressed into the shape of noodles. The resulting texture is firmer than gelatinous desserts such as jelly.
