This recipe makes a sweet, refreshingly light dessert that’s packed with fruit flavours. It comprises a fruit soup that harbours the fresh and fruity sweetness of pear and lychee, combined with the sweet caramelly taste of white chocolate espuma. The crunchy orange-flavoured tuile on top gives this sweet course a pleasant crispy accent.
