Azelia Exotica Chocolate entremet by Oriol Balaguer

Oriol Balaguer was one of the star guests of the inauguration of L’École Valrhona Brooklyn in 2015. Three years later, the Spanish chef has returned to the school to explain his “pastry style.” A two-day course, aimed exclusively at members of Valrhona’s Cercle V, in which he shared his creativity and award-winning techniques without reservation.

Balaguer is a master of chocolate and a pastry chef with a very personal style that has led him to be recognized internationally and win numerous awards, for example, the Prix au Chef Patissier 2018 awarded by the International Academy of Gastronomy, Spain’s Best Artisan Butter Croissant 2014, and Spain’s Best Panettone 2017. And, of course, his the author of OBsession.

During his masterclass he presented creations like this Azelia Exotica Entremet, of which we detail the recipe below.
