Fervently endorsing the Style Rebellion trend, Callebaut chef Philippe Vancayseele created a captivating shortbread tart with flashy colours and bold flavours. He topped off a crunchy sablé Breton base with a refreshingly fruity layer of passion fruit-banana crémeux and decorated the whole with odd-shaped, crazy-coloured chocolate Chantilly decorations with an intense chocolate taste. We don’t know what went on in the mind of this chocolate genius when he created this recipe. But we sure know it’s bound to make a smashing impression!
