Sous-Chef Pâtissier Pâtisserie Intuitions, Cannes.
The idea was to revisit the classical black forest that everyone knows, fabricated in a pastry shop in a profitable way retaining all the original flavours, but added texture.
I wanted to retain the tradition round shape, adding a geometric and indulging
The goal was to retain the original fl avours of a blackforest with a little intensity of kirsch, amarena, chocolate and vanilla, all with improving the textures and fl avours creating a lighter dessert.
