As promised in my previous post, I’m sharing here the recipes given to us during the cooking demo yesterday. Several bloggers including myself are so honored to watch Chef Marc Chalopin cook two wonderful dishes. We were able to taste those yummy dishes too. I wish I could have gotten more of the burgers because it definitely tasted so good. We all wanted more!
Chef Chalopin is ADF+Enderun executive chef who joined in 2008 to supervise the culinary program in Manila, control the quality of instructors and curriculum, teach advanced culinary classes, as well as partner with suppliers to get the best produce, materials and equipment available. Before joining Enderun, Chef Marc Chalopin has had 25 years of experience. He has worked with the best chefs in the world including: Joel Robuchon, Alain Ducasse, Louis Grondard and Alain Reix.
Chef Chalopin was very engaging while he cooked in front of us. He was providing tips in cooking and preparing dishes. It was really funny when he was asking us if we have ovens and ice cream makers.
Without further ado, here are the recipes of the two dishes Chef Marc Chalopin made. Thanks to ADF+Enderun for this opportunity! I hope to be able to cook the dishes when I get the right equipment. :)
Chocolate Ice Cream
1 quart Milk (1 liter)
1/2 cup Heavy cream (12 cL)
2 1/4 oz Butter (60g)
8 1/4 oz Sugar (230g)
1 3/4 oz Honey (50g)
1 lb Guanaja couverture
1 oz Cocoa paste (30g)
3 1/2 oz Egg yolks (100g)
1/2 L Milk
1 cup Heavy cream (25 cL)
600g Dark couverture chocolaté, preferably 65% dark
40g Cocoa paste
Coffee and Rum Granite
1 quart Coffee (1 liter)
5 1/4 oz Sugar (150g)
6 3/4 T Dark rum (10cL)
1 L Heavy cream
Seeds from 2 vanilla beans, split and scraped
50g Slivered almonds
50g Liquid glucose
Making the Ice Cream
- Heat all the chocolate ice cream ingredients to 183F (84C) in a double broiler.
- Chill to 39F (4C), let sit, process in the ice cream maker, and set aside.
Making the Granite
- Sugar the coffee, add rum, and freeze.
- Once the mixture is frozen, use a fork to break it up into ice flakes.
Preparing the Chocolate Sauce
- To make the chocolate sauce, combine milk, cream and sugar.
- Remove from heat and add to the dark couverture, broken into small pieces, and cocoa paste.
- Put in an ice bath when couverture melts completely.
Preparing the Chantilly Cream
- Whip cream together with sugar and vanilla seeds. Do not overbeat: the cream should only be semi-firm.
Making the Nougatine

Finish and Assembly:
Fill a tall dessert glass, alternating the different elements of the dessert, except the vanilla-flavored Chantilly cream, which is to be added last. Sprinkle with cocoa powder and nougatine pieces just before serving.

I can’t get enough of the burgers! I’ll surely try that recipe as soon as I get the chance. Too sad that I was only able to try one piece. When I was trying to go back to the buffet table to get one more, the tray was already empty.
Oh well, good thing the recipe was shared with us. So here I am, sharing it with you. If you get to make the burgers successfully, can you share some to me? I miss eating it already!
