WEEK 21 – CHOCOLATE
This is the first week we’ve worked entirely with chocolate, a lot, sometimes too much chocolate. Toppings with different textures, different forms and methods of making candies, sugared almonds … and even a little drawing and the FIRST small chocolate sculptures : acorn “hazelnut gianduja”* and Œuf mendiant. There are many new techniques, surprising and very interesting!!! But as always, of course, training and we start again!
* The gianduja is a paste of chocolate and finely crushed hazelnuts to which we can add other nuts also crushed, as well as icing sugar and fat.
