andrés moránHe became acquainted with high-class artisan pastry by the hand of Paco and Jacob Torreblanca and also high quality industrial pastry in Barry Callebaut Pastry Manufacturing. He even spent a year in China developing products for the hostelry sector. Now, for two years, pastry chef Andrés Morán has been making healthy desserts at the Sha Wellness Clinic, (L’Albir, Alicante).

The ingredients he uses are natural, mostly integral and of ecological and sustainable origin, and also, he assures us, beneficial for one’s health.There is no trace of dairy products, eggs, margarines, sugars and refined flours in his desserts… nor of course artificial colors or preservatives. And the flavor? More intense, clean and authentic.

At So Good #18, he reveals how he achieve this, for instance with this plated dessert.
