Chef Amer from Le Bourne had come to Amiplus for a special demo featuring Le Bourne's new butterscotch chocolate. We had an overwhelming response with chef Amer's electric personality.
Vanilla essence may even be added to provide a refreshing and more enriched aroma.
Just to prove how delicious it was, participants were given the opportunity to try tasting it for themselves after watching the chef preparing it hands on.
For his butterscotch heaven cake, he adds gelatin to the melted butterscotch chocolate and mixes it with cream to cover the sponge cakes.
Again, letting the attendees try the heavenly butterscotch cream mixture.
Next he cooks sugar and crushed almonds over heat until the sugar turns brown as a delicious and fragrant garnish for the cake.
Baking isn't easy, even the chef needs a little help from the audience to speed things up.
More of the garnish patted on the side of the cake..
After the cake has been left to set in the fridge, it was time to decorate it!
The chef showed us his steady hands and calligraphy skills when decorating cakes by writing on it free hand with melted chocolate..
and adding other chocolate garnishes..
First he put small cake squares into a transparent dessert cup. According to the chef, the cake serves to add texture to the desert cup and prevents the sickly feeling a person may feel when eating a large amount of cream in one go.
He then pipes a generous amount of delicious butterscotch cream onto the cake piece and adds another cake layer on to it.
For some tartness, he pipes strawberry jam into the cups which also adds a pop of color into the dessert.
It is then followed by another generous layer of butterscotch cream.
Lastly, the dessert cup is drizzled with some butterscotch chocolate and topped with other garnishes as well.
Since the process of making truffles involves making small round balls of chocolate, everyone gets to join in on the fun to learn how to make the perfect-sized truffle that fits perfectly into our mouths.
The Chef even throws in a lesson on how to correctly and fully enjoy a truffle.
|"You must let it sit and melt on your tongue, then you will feel a sudden rush of coldness emitting from the chocolate...."|
Bonus: Since Malaysia is currently facing a serious dry-spell, there was a popular demand for an iced drink. The Chef cleverly incorporates the butterscotch chocolate into a refreshing drink to create a Butterscotch Milkshake recipe consisting of ice-cream, ice-cubes and of course, butterscotch chocolate.
