The previous day we make the chocolate entrement and the coating glaze.

Instructions for the chocolate entrement:

  • Melt chocolate using bain marie. Heat up the milk and put in kumquat loukoums till they melt. Beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Put all the ingredients and make a ganache. Pour the mixture into round molds (150ml) and put them in the freezer for a night.

Instructions for the chocolate entrement:

  • In a bowl, soak the gelatin with water.
  • Boil glucose with sugar and water making syrup. Pour gelatin into the syrup and then add the white chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and pastry color. Using a stick blender, pulse all the ingredients until roughly chopped and combined. Cover with cling film and leave overnight in the fridge.

Next day:

  • Beat the butter with the icing sugar until fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla, salt and the flour.
  • Spread the dough between two sheets of baking paper and put it in the freezer.
  • Cut out dough strips for the sides of the molds (10 cm) and dough rounds for the bottom. Press each strip into the mold and then the bottoms. Bake for 15 minutes at 180ο C.
  • Spread some marmalade.
  • Crumble mandolas and put them with heavy cream into a frying pan. Stir until it becomes a ganache (105ο C).
  • Pour the filling over the jam and leave the tarts to cool.   


  • Heat up the coating glaze over bain-marie. Using a stick blender, blend the mixture at 35ο C.
  • Unmold the entrements and place them on a wire stand with a baking tray below. Glaze the pastries and let them drain for a while.
  • Place them on the top of tarts and decorate with chocolate pieces and kumquat glazed fruits
