Our new article will travel us a long time ago… into the kitchens of the Royal Pavilion in 19th century Brighton, where we will meet great confectioner Antonin Carême. We will travel there accompanied by the book Δέκα by Potamos Publishers. In the end, as usual, we will make a dessert, chocolate truffles with whiskey according to a recipe from the book!
In our new, Easter article we will talk about red, as well as chocolate eggs, learn their history and symbolisms and we make chocolate egg-truffles with chocolate ganache, biscuits, honey and almond orgeat syrup!
In our first chocolate article we will dive for a while into the history of chocolate and of the chocolate tart in particular, and we will make our own healthy variation: a tart with dark chocolate, pears in grape molasses and a base made with extra virgin olive oil
In search of the answer to our muffins or cupcakes dilemma, we turned to psychology, learned their history and of course baked our own vanilla mini cakes with candied fruit and chocolate frosting.
