Chestnut, Chocolate & Clementine Log

Daniel Debattista
Phoenix Restaurant at Phoenicia

Ingredients

400g Morning Coffee biscuits
300g cooking chocolate
200g chestnuts, cooked
150g walnuts
100g glazed cherries
200g dried cranberries, soaked
100g golden raisins, soaked
100g dates, soaked
2 tbsp cocoa powder
Zest of 1 clementine and juice of 2
1 tsp cinnamon, ground
1 tsp all spice
½ tsp nutmeg, ground
250ml Grand Marnier

Method

Chop the dates roughly and mix with the rest of the dried fruits. Place in a large bowl, macerate generously with Grand Marnier and leave to soak overnight. Melt the chocolate over a bain-marie, stirring gently, until it melts and switch off heat. Keep at around room temperature. Crush the biscuits and fold into the macerated fruits, add spices, nuts, and mix well all together. Gradually add the condensed milk mixture until you obtain a firm pliable texture. Shape into a cylinder or any shape of choice and decorate with chocolate accordingly.
