First we make a flower pot using a silicone
baking mold. We’ll make it look like the pot is broken. Now we’ll fill it with mousse made of sour
cream and halva. Halva is actually a Turkish dessert made from
various nuts and seeds – such as sesame seeds. But the halva I remember from my childhood
is made of sunflower seeds. It’s happened to all of us as children: You’re
messing around at home and accidentally knock over a flower pot. OOPs! That’s exactly what I wanted to capture. And then you think “Oh no. I’m in trouble now.” Next we add a teaspoon of pepper ice cream. It symbolizes the punishment. Punishment with pepper ice cream is the logical
next step. Every prank is punished in the end. Of course, I’m not going to spank my guests,
but punish them with pepper ice cream. It bites the tongue. Now the whole thing is filled with earth,
which we make from chocolate brownies. … And the garnish is also completely edible. Fresh mint and a bellflower. The trick here is to serve the dessert on a real
parquet floortile. The soil spilled on the floor, splinters of
the broken pot, the crumpled flower – I’m telling a whole story. On average, we sell two thousand of these
‘flowerpots’ a month. That’s 24,000 a year – huge for a restaurant
with seven different desserts on the menu. I long dreamed of making a dish that would
be the talk of the town. And then I did it. But at the same time this dessert is really
stealing the show. I do a lot of new dishes. Many original desserts. All with ideas and messages behind them. I want my guests to notice them as well. But this flowerpot dessert is so popular that
it hogs the limelight. I’ll have to invent something that takes some
of the shine off of that dessert. Something so original that it surpasses the
