‘I intend to highlight the product by playing with fruity and generally less sweet flavors. I try to play with different textures and temperatures so they are tasty and quite simple regarding the serving. That defines my career within patisserie.’ Simplicity, flavor and balance. Great Philippe Rigollot, MOF patissier and a world pastry champion, has settled on this trend which insists on enhancing the purity of flavors and aesthetic lines. For this task, he has found a great partner in the diverse world of silicone molds. Alongside the Italian firm Silikomart, Rigollot offers us two creations which stand out thanks to their studied simplicity.


Coconut and lime ball

Coconut and lime ball by Philippe Rigollot

lime cream

  • 41 g butter
  • 113 g eggs
  • 77 g sugar
  • 71 g lime juice
  • 2 g powdered gelatin, 200 bloom
  • 5 g corn starch
  • lime zest

Combine the lime juice and the mixture of sugar, eggs, starch and lime zest and place over a gentle heat. Bring to a boil, then add the gelatin and butter. Homogenize properly and pour about 20 g into a sphere mold (Flan Mould – Silikomart). Freeze.

lime sponge

  • 37 g eggs
  • 15 g egg yolks
  • 30 g almond powder
  • 3 g honey
  • 3 g corn starch
  • 30 g sugar
  • lime zest

Place all the ingredients except the lime zest in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle and beat to a ribbon stage. Gently fold in the lime zest and pour onto a sheet pan. Bake at 180ºC for 6 to 7 minutes. Allow to cool, spread the exotic compote over the surface and freeze. Cut into 4-cm-wide disks.

ivoire coconut mousse

  • 115 g coconut purée
  • 147 g Ivoire white couverture
  • 13 g cocoa butter
  • 5 g powdered gelatin, 200 bloom
  • 231 g semi-whipped cream, 35% fat
  • 28 gcoconut, shredded

Heat the coconut purée and add the gelatin. Pour one third of the hot liquid over the chocolate and cocoa butter, previously melted together. Mix with the help of a hand whisk so as to obtain a smooth, glossy and elastic texture. Process with a hand blender. Add the shredded coconut very carefully so as not to alter the texture. Once the chocolate mixture is at about 30-35ºC, fold in the cream, previously whipped to soft peaks. Pipe 45 g into each mold and freeze.

exotic compote

  • 23 g passion fruit purée
  • 20 g mango purée
  • 23 g coconut purée
  • 27 g sugar
  • 11 g atomized glucose
  • 7 g sugar
  • 2 g pectin NH
  • 7 g lime juice

Combine the purées in a saucepan and heat. Pour in the mixture of sugar and atomized glucose and add the pectin together with the second measurement of sugar. Bring to a boil. Off the heat, add the lime juice, allow to cool and homogenize.


Prepare a sphere mold, 5.8 cm in diameter. Fill the bottom with the Ivoire coconut mousse, sprinkle with some white-chocolate crunchy pearls, cover with the sponge, compote, lime cream, compote and sponge insert. Seal the mold and pour the remaining mousse. Unmold, partially coat with a mixture of cocoa butter and white chocolate. Glaze with neutral gelatin and toss in shredded coconut. Garnish.
