Today, 16 May, on the occasion of International Coeliac Day, organized by the Association of European Coeliac Societies, we share the Ghana cake recipe by Jordi Bordas published in Dulycpas # 442, with which he succeeds in banishing the idea that bakery free of gluten or lactose is bland or dry. Using his particular B • Concept method, it does not replace the allergen with another alternate, but designs a new piece balanced in taste, texture, and humidity.
In the next so good # 19 we will showcase new creations from the pastry chef, winner of the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie 2011.
