Agrumi

level 3

Inspired by the tradition of distinguished Italian desserts, Callebaut chef Alexandre Bourdeaux created Agrumi, an ode to the delightfully refreshing taste of citrus fruits. But this jewel of a dessert harbours more than an energising tartness: the pleasant tang of the bergamot and calamondin mousse inside the plated dessert is beautifully complemented by hints of vanilla, caramel and tonka bean, and the sweet, creamy taste of Finest Belgian milk Chocolate. Delightfully pleasing to the eye, but even more pleasing to the tongue.
