This Plant Based Composed Chocolate Cake is our version of "Haute Patisserie" desserts that offer very similar taste and texture of traditional desserts, but all made with pant-based ingredients only (no eggs, cream, butter, gelatin, etc.) so No Cholesterol!
We apply the same 'constructivism' and scientific approach to our food design processes resulting in desserts that have distinct 'new' taste and textures! This cake starts with an almond cookie base topped with a moist chocolate gateau mixed with roasted nuts for texture. A compote of dried apricots, passion fruit and orange is added for a fruity note followed with an all plant based milk chocolate - our own formulation and completely crafted in our chocolate making lab - and hazelnut praliné mousse. And the final layer is a milk chocolate 'cremeux' cream. For texture, the cake is finished with crushed / rasped roasted hazelnuts and hand painted chocolate 'stampings’. Branding tag is not edible.
