We boil the cream and add the white chocolate, we mix it well with the help of a spatula, then we add the extra virgin olive oil from Centenary Trees without stopping stirring.

Let it cool in the fridge for about 12 hours.


We cut the sponge cake in a square or rectangular portion, with the help of an electric blade we caramelize its exterior walls.

We then assemble the plate using a base of olive oil, the sponge cake and a white chocolate ganache quenelle.
