Montebello: Reinvent the classic "Fraisier"

Actually I really want to have other reason to make some sweet ^^, but in the end it always comes from the fact that I get some new book and I want to try some recipes.

Montebello: Reinvent the classic "Fraisier"
And this time is simple, the same reason but a new kind of dessert (and recipe, hehe). The dessert that I made is  "Montebello", the recipe comes from the book .......................
I have to admit that this book is very beautiful and the recipe seem to be different from other books by Pierre Hermé. Most of the time I feel like he rewrites his recipes in every books, haha, (I'm not mean, I really have that feeling -*-, but I just can't stop myself from buying his book).  Anyway this book is not! The theme of the book is the classic recipes and the invention  that base from the classic by Pierre Hermé. There are 2 recipes per 1 classic dessert, the first one is the classic and the second is the new invention. The new invention is more interesting, even they base on the fact that Pierre Hermé still uses the same combination, like rose and raspberry or his signature coffee tart, and etc. 
Like the recipe that I made, the classic one is a Fraisier, the sponge cake filled with crème mousseline, fresh strawberries and covered the top with Italian meringue. But the invention version is this one "Montebello", the biscuit dacquoise pistache with pistachio flavored crème mousseline and fresh strawberries. With pistachio dacquoise and less cream, dessert becomes lighter and fresher, I think I love it.
Anyway you don't have to believe me, hehe, try it by yourself (and don't forget to tell me, ^^).
