Pierre Marcolini, Pastel collectionAugust 6, 2011
Pierre Marcolini reveals you his secret for the Pastel collection. For those who don’t know them yet, these summer chocolates go particularly well with sunshine and heat-waves. They are quite the opposite of the seasonal classics, frequently associated with grey skies and cold days. These dainty 5-gram morsels have a sumptuous fruity filing infused with lime, passion fruit, mango and yuzu (a japanese citrus). They are best eaten straight from the fridge (6°c). Cold attenuates taste, and we wanted to bring you chilled chocolates with an optimal flavour balance. The recipe was carefully designed so they would taste best at a cool temperature; they are not too sugary, even slighlty salty, with a fine shell of white or dark chocolate for sweetness and structure.
