Why a collection of vegetable macarons?
Invasion of the Plants is a creative exercise in which the chefs of the Cacao Barry® brand around the world have put together a collection of recipes inspired by combining plants and chocolates. This collection of macarons created by Ramon Morató continues this trend and proposes seven macarons, which have been created using seven different vegetables combined with white chocolate couverture.
Why Zephyr™ white chocolate?
With a lower sugar content compared to traditional white chocolates, rich in milk notes and a creamy texture, Zephyr™ white chocolate is the perfect ally in these preparations. The aim was to provide just the right texture and flavour to enable vegetables to take starring role in these macarons.
Tips: In order to fully appreciate a product half way between savoury and sweet during tasting, a salty element (a cheese associated with each vegetable, a pepper crumble, a jelly or special salt) has been placed on the surface of all the macarons in the collection. During tasting, this salty entrance is perceived first, giving way to the sweet sensation of the vegetable macaron. It is important to assemble the macarons and leave them to ‘mature’ 12 hours in the fridge before serving in order to hydrate the shell. Finish by topping with the surface elements just before serving.
