Nougat Glacé with Citrus Crepes recipe : Chef Guillaume Brahimi

To celebrate the launch of the new Tefal Heritage range of French home cookware, Tefal has just announced a partnership with one of Australia’s most popular and celebrated French chefs, Guillaume Brahimi. Guillaume has applied his own French flair to create a selection of beautiful, yet approachable, French-inspired recipes. Here’s one of them.

Nougat glacé with Citrus Crepes

Serves 6

Ingredients:

Nougat glacé

80gm egg white
35gm sugar
35gm glucose
75gm honey
350gm thickened cream
30ml Grand Mariner
70gm glacé fruit, diced to 1/2 centimeter pieces
50gm hazelnuts, roasted and roughly chopped

Crepes

200gm plain flour
50gm sugar
1 pinch salt
20gm melted butter
2 eggs
270ml milk
1 lemon zest, finely grated
1 orange zest, finely grated

Garnish

70ml honey
70gm glacé fruit, diced to 1/2 centimeter pieces
50gm hazelnuts, roasted and roughly chopped

Method:

Whip cream until soft peaks form. Place sugar, honey and glucose in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Place egg whites in an electric mixing bowl, when the honey mixture reaches 118 degrees, start whipping the egg whites. Once the mix reaches 121 degrees, add to the whites slowly, whip until cool. Add the fruit, nuts, grand mariner and whipped cream and mix gently with a spatula. Place in a lined 20 cm x 10cm x 2 cm container and freeze.

Place flour, sugar, salt and zest in a mixing bowl, combine eggs and milk separately and whisk together. Slowly whisk the milk mixture into the flour, to make a paste. Place the Tefal Heritage Non-Stick Induction Crepe Pan, 28cm on the heat, and add the mixture to thinly cover the pan. Cook for 2 minutes and then flip, and cook for another minute. Allow to cool. Remove the nougat glacé from the freezer and tin and cut into 3cm x 10cm pieces, wrap crepe around the nougat. For garnish place honey in a pan and heat, add the nuts and fruits and mix. Spoon the mix over the top of the crepes and serve.

Guillaume said: “Tefal is a household name for me; I’ve grown up using Tefal cookware. I have never put my name to a brand before, but I believe in Tefal as a brand that continues to bring innovation and quality to cooking. Welcoming my friends and family over to share a delicious but simple French meal at home is one of my favourite pastimes and for me; good quality cookware plays a vital part in creating a delicious meal.

I’ve created a number of recipes using the Tefal Heritage range which I feel are easy to recreate whatever the occasion. I often cook pan-seared fish for my family in warmer evenings and the beauty of Tefal Heritage cookware is that you really don’t need to use much butter or oil; the pan will turn your food perfectly golden. It just makes French cooking that bit easier!”

The Tefal Heritage Cookware Range includes six pieces. The Wok is perfect for braising fresh baby vegetables – serve as an entrée or a side dish to accompany pan-seared fish or chicken. Try sautéing kipfler potatoes with a touch of garlic and a few batons of speck for that extra je ne sais quoi in the Sauté Pan. For those after an authentic French indulgence, the Crepe Pan provides the smoothest surface to easily whip up delicately light, yet decadent crepes the French are renowned for.

The Tefal Heritage cookware range also includes two Frypans (26cm and 30cm) and a Saucepan. The entire range is available in Australia exclusively at Myer stores.
