Any ideas for a tropical plated dessert(s) and flavors?
I have a baking final coming up soon (college) and we have to make a fancy plated dessert(s) (and other components if we like). I want to use tropical flavors (mango, lime, passionfruit, etc), but I just dont know what dessert to choose. I'm trying to challenge myself, but at the same time not get in over my head...any ideas? (I have no professional experience, but I can bake pretty well) I basically have 2 days, (5 hours each day) to make the dessert then the chef grades it. I'm freaking out honestly.

The original recipe is in his French language cookbook.
The restaurant has changed hands a couple of times since his retirement, but when Fredy was running it, it was arguably one of the best restaurants in the Western Hemisphere despite the fact that it had zero Michelin stars (the Michelin Guide did not provide star ratings to restaurants in the Lausanne area).
The recipe itself is rather simple, the ingredient list very short. Being a soufflé, it doesn't require much time to make.
suggests cooking for about 15 minutes in a 190C oven.
The recipe in the cookbook says about a dozen minutes in a 250C oven so you should experiment with that.
From the cookbook, Girardet's handwritten note: "Un des plats les plus demandés à Crissier" ("One of the most requested dishes at Crissier" -- the restaurant town's name).
