Pierre Hermé’s Chocolate Sorbet2017-08-17
A delicious treat, the Chocolate Sorbet has no eggs and no cream like an ice cream does, yet it is delicious and really intense for Chocolate lovers
About this recipeRemember the recipe I made from the book of Hermé (see here) ?
Well, while reading that book, I stumbled on this "Chocolate Sorbet" recipe that puzzled me at first...
I initially thought this was a bad joke. Turns out, I was just ignorant !!
I thought sorbets were just suitable for fruit, but it turns out Hermé was right : A sorbet with chocolate is actually delicious !
Source of the recipeI was given this second hand book of renowned Pierre Hermé "Desserts by Pierre Herme", with so many delightful recipes.

And recently, a classmate from my pastry school asked me whether I could show her my Hermé books written in English, which made me read this book
Modifications to the original recipeI just modified:
You will need...
Waterdon't love each other : when combined, it ruins the
Dark Chocolate. Nevertheless, if you follow the instructions thereafter, everything will be just fine and you shouldn't fear anything
2. Combine in a large saucepan the
Sugar(⅔ Cup or 150 g), the
Water(2 Cups or 452 g) (at room temperature) and the
Dark Chocolate( 7 oz or 200 g)
on low heat
10. Hermé recommends cooling the sorbet mix, by placing the bowl on a large bowl filled with ice and water
11. This will cool down the sorbet mix quickly
12. While it's cooling down, stir frequently with a rubber spatula
Ice Cream Maker with a Freezer Bowl : This ice cream maker has a special bowl, a container that goes into the freezer
overnight. Once it's frozen, you put it in your ice cream maker, add your mix, and let the machine stir them until the ice cream is ready.
Ice Cream Maker with a Compressor : This top of the line ice cream maker chills using a compressor. You don't need neither ice nor bowl : you don't need to remember to freeze anything overnight; when you're ready to make ice cream, just add your ingredients and go
If you are using like me an Ice Cream Maker with a Freezer Bowl, you need to place the bowl and the plastic over into the freezer for
a few hours
