Caramelized Gala milfulles, whipped cream & walnuts
Preparation
Peel the apple and pass it through a water bath with ascorbic to prevent it from turning brown.
Slice Japanese slicer until you reach the core of the apple.
Leave in the bath with ascorbic acid until needed.

Crispy slices of Gala
Cut the apple slices into 15 cm segments.
Place the apples in the simple syrup and caramelize in the oven at 120ºC for 45 minutes until perfectly crispy.
Place in an air-tight container until the moment of plating.

Whipped cream
Whip the cream until it begins to thicken and then add the sugar until semi-whipped.
Keep cold in a pastry bag with a curly tip until ready to serve.

Caramelized walnuts
Make a syrup with the sugar and water until it reaches 121ºC.
Add the walnuts, take them off the heat and stir until the sugar crystallizes and completely encloses the walnuts.
Return the pot to the heat and caramelize until the sugar gets a nice toasty color.
Remove from heat and spread out on parchment paper until cool.
Reserve in an airtight container until ready to plate.

Presentation
Place a slice of caramelized apple on a plate.
Pipe the cream with flowers all over the apple slice.
Place the caramelized walnuts, lime wedges, basil leaves and the grated lime peel over the cream.
Repeat the operation with two other apple slices.
Serve immediately.
