To offer an indulging classic to our clients.
As the name suggests, we wanted to create a cake in the shape of a dome or mountain.
Vanilla, almond and of course chestnut cream. All comes from the last ingredient. I found the rare pearl: a grower in Ardeche (a region in France) which makes this preparation (cream, puree, flour etc..) with chestnuts only from Ardeche.
The farm run by Michel and Dominique Grange in Lamastre (the north of Ardeche) grow, pick and transform in their own laboratory. Their chestnuts are 100% organic without adding any sugar to their chestnut paste in order to bring out the best of this regional ingredient.
THE TECHNICAL STEP?
Making the chestnut cream and piping it as it is quite technical.
We communicate with the use of local and organic chestnuts. Our clients are really happy to see a short supply chain.
