Caramelatte: caramelatte glaze, caramelatte cremeux, caramelatte mousse, almond caramelized, salted caramel, cocoa sorbet.

 

Caramelized Milk Chocolate “Caramelatte” offers a play on textures with coconut sorbet, praline dust, caramelized almonds, salted caramel, and Kalamansi. The dessert is part of the 11th course degustation menu of Amber, a two-Michelin-star restaurant integrated into the Landmark Mandarin Oriental hotel (Hong Kong). Its pastry chef Michael Pretet, interviewed by our correspondent Santiago Corral, takes great care of the products he uses because for him, that is the basis for any dessert. Something that is very evident in this dish that he shares with us from the moment it is plated.
