Sprinkle the gelatine over 1 tbsp of the milk and allow to absorb. Chop the dark chocolate and place it in a bowl.


Heat the rest of the milk in a pot to just below boiling point, whisk in the gelatine then pour over the chocolate. Add the chilled whipping cream and blend with a stick blender.


Pour into a loaf tin, place cling film over the surface and allow the chocolate cream to stand at room temperature to set for at least 6 hours.


Pour the crémeux into a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.


Divide the crémeux between serving bowls.


Drag a spoon across the crème fraîche to create quenelles. Place the quenelles on the crémeux along with the fresh cherries and preserved cherries. Dust with the cocoa powder and serve.
