Clouds of Muscovado sugar

Foams or clouds are very contemporary but tend to add little flavour, as the liquids that are used to create these fashionable additions simply have too little taste. For this recipe we could use brown sugar, but we have opted for muscovado sugar as it is more aromatic. These aromas are released when the air bubbles are popped as you eat this airy delight. Muscovado is a soft and moist sugar made up of fine, dark brown crystals. This type of sugar contains a high level of natural cane molasses which creates a sticky texture and a defined cane flavour.

Preparation method

  • Put all the ingredients in a measuring jug and mix using a hand-held blender.
  • Froth up the liquid with a hand-held blender or small aquarium pump just before serving.
  • If you are using a small aquarium pump, be sure to always cover the stones with a cheesecloth, as they could crumble and break off after several uses.
  • Spoon the foam onto your dish.

Serving suggestions

  • As a delicious accompaniment to a dessert of pineapple sous vide and an espuma of flambéed banana.
  • Create a unique dessert by serving it with strained yoghurt completed with ginger cake crumbs and red fruits.
