CHEF'S TIP:
  • Dulcey 32% is a smooth, creamy chocolate with a velvety and enveloping texture and a warm, blond color. The first notes are buttery, toasty and not too sweet, gradually giving way to the flavors of shortbread with a pinch of salt. When you try it, you will not stop eating them! The most important technique in this recipe is the use of iota which is a carrageenan obtained from red algae. Iota is the gelling agent that gives the creamiest texture to any dessert. We use it to make creme brulee without baking and with the same texture without using egg.
