Create Glucose Syrup
In a small heavy bottom pan add the water, sugar and glucose DE42 powder and bring to a simmer or until the ingredients are dissolved. This creates an invert sugar that will keep the sorbet perfectly scoopable.
Remove from the stove and allow to cool.
Pour the cooled syrup into a blender with raspberries.
Add the perfect sorbet to the Puree, and blend until smooth.
Strain & Churn
Strain through a suberbag 250 micron or chinois.
Follow the manufacturer’s instruction for ice cream machine and churn.
Store in the freezer until ready for use.

Whisk together until there are no lumps and is nicely combined.
Combine & Dissolve
Add the 177g of water to the egg and sugar mixture and place over the pan simmering tap water.
Whisking constantly, mix for 5 minutes or until all the sugar has dissolved.
Whisk in Stand Mixer
Remove from the hot water and pour into the stand up mixer bowl.
Using the whisk attachment, whisk until it cools and forms stiff peaks.
Remove bowl from the standup mixer, add the sieved powdered sugar and fold in gently, just until combined.
Place the mix in a piping bag with the #804 tip.
Lightly spray the underside of the sphere molds with non stick spray.
Starting at the underside base of the mold, pipe a ring of meringue around the base.
Continue with another ring on top of that ring and continue until the mold is completely covered.
Bake & Cool
Place the molds on a half sheet tray and place in oven for 45 minutes or until the meringue is firm.
Remove and cool.
Once cooled, release the meringues from the molds and set aside until needed.

place a ring of fresh raspberries on top of the jam. Place the meringue half-sphere in the ring of berries so that the meringue creates a bowl.
Place a large dollop of unsweetened whipped cream into the center of the half-sphere.
Place one scoop of the raspberry sorbet on top of the whipped cream.
Garnish with sliced mixed berries on the plate and whipped cream, and serve.
