Bavarois (also bavarian cream or crème bavaroise) is a delicate French chocolate dessert with a creamy, aerated texture. This recipe yields a bavarois with a deep, dark colour and an intense chocolate taste – deliciously light and an absolute favourite on the dessert menu. For the perfect end result our chefs recommend using Finest Belgian Chocolate or a Single Origin chocolate – if you're more into explicit and aromatic flavour nuances – with standard fluidity, indicated with 💧💧💧 on the packaging.
