Thoughts on using Pâtissier Chocolate as an ingredient?
By using Pâtissier Chocolate, I can find many raw ingredients to suit my creation, such as the various milk and dark chocolate options. Furthermore, Pâtissier Chocolate gives me the chance to explore many tastes since all chocolate has unique taste.
What is your inspiration behind in creating the recipes?
I try to develop simple recipes but focus on the overall flavor of the chocolate in the end taste which counts the most for me (and most people).
