Annette Klingelhöfer is fascinated by the stories behind the pastry ingredients. She travels the world to get to know the people who supply flour, milk, cheese, but also vanilla and cocoa beans. It's all about picking the best and sharing the passion. Her Hazelnut-Cocoa Gingerbread with Orange, for instance, is full of ingredients with a rich story behind it, such as our Single Origin Madagascar chocolate.
