Yuzu and white chocolate cream cake

level 3

It’s no secret that yuzi – a deliciously fragrant Japanese citrus fruit and chocolate make a perfect couple. In this entremet they create fireworks for the taste buds. We recommend you use fresh yuzu, only available in winter. When using yuzu concentrate make sure you do not overdose as it is extremely powerful overtaking other flavours.
