When pan-frying superb ingredients such as veal, you may want its natural flavours to really come out, without disguising it too much with butter or oily flavours. Our chefs do so with Mycryo®: a great alternative to butter and oils - 100% natural and vegetable. Mycryo® is powdered pure cocoa butter that naturally seals your ingredients. This way, all the flavours and juices are preserved during frying. Compared to butter or olive oil, Mycryo® has a neutral taste and doesn't drown out or affect the natural flavours of your ingredients. Simply sprinkle the Mycryo® straight onto the ingredients and fry in a hot pan. Clean, simple and delicious.
