How to Make It

Step 1    

In a saucepan, heat the cream with the granulated sugar until hot to the touch. In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks. Gradually whisk in 1 cup of the hot cream. Scrape the mixture into the saucepan and cook over moderate heat, whisking, until slightly thickened, 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the chocolate and let stand until melted, 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth. Transfer to a shallow bowl and refrigerate until very cold, at least 4 hours.

Step 2    

In a bowl, beat the cream with the confectioners' sugar, espresso and vanilla until firm. Spoon the cream into ten 1/2-cup ramekins and freeze until firm.

Step 3    

Preheat the oven to 350°. Butter the bread on both sides. Toast on a baking sheet for about 8 minutes, or until golden.

Step 4    

Spoon the milk-chocolate cremoso onto plates, sprinkle with the hazelnuts and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Serve the espresso parfait and toast on the side.

Make Ahead

The cremoso can be refrigerated for up to 3 days; the espresso parfait can be frozen for up to 1 week.
