Paul Kennedy so good #23

Sesame Lemongrass by Paul Kennedy

When developing a recipe, Irish pastry chef Paul Kennedy starts with two simple questions: could the average person create this, and can it be made within the time constraints?

The teacher at Savour Chocolate & Patisserie School (Melbourne) recognizes that taste is what is most important, “however, to play with a concept or flavor combination, to challenge someone’s perception of what they are about to eat, is equally satisfying”.

In so good # 23, Kennedy pushes the boundaries with creations like this Sesame Lemongrass bar. It’s a perfect combination of chocolate, almond, and a kick of lemongrass, with a crunch provided on both sides of the ganache.
