Every layer holds different colours, textures and flavours, so when you cut a slice, the interiors are just as beautiful as the exteriors. Even simple entremets like chocolate mousse, which do not have complex layers require skill and precision. The exteriors are glossy, glazed and decorated with finesse – sometimes having a mirror-like sheen. The end result is always surprising, delicate and delicious.
