Good Practice As for all raw materials you use, it is worth paying particular attention to the use and storage of chocolate. To make your task easier and to use VALRHONA chocolate at its best, here are a few suggestions and tips in response to frequently asked questions.

VALRHONA Products

Dark Chocolate

VALRHONA have developed excellent chocolate couvertures for chocolate making - dark, milk or white chocolate to enable you to make the finest chocolate candies and desserts. Our skill resides in knowing how to choose the best cocoa beans and to balance our chocolate formulae to offer you a whole range of refined flavours. • VALRHONA dark chocolate consists of cocoa beans from the best origins, sugar, occasionally the addition of cocoa butter (fat content from the cocoa bean) to improve fluidity and to enable coating and moulding, then soya lecithin, an emulsifier which stabilises the mixture. • VALRHONA milk chocolate contains selected cocoa beans, full fat milk, sugar, cocoa butter for fluidity, soya lecithin and a hint of natural vanilla to bring out the flavours. • VALRHONA white chocolate consists of full fat milk, sugar, cocoa butter and a hint of natural vanilla. Its finesse is obtained by very fine grinding of its different ingredients.

COATING AND MOULDING Chocolate melting: To make melting easier, use the “chocolates beans” form or chop each 1 kg block, bar by bar, with a large serrated knife (one bar weighs 200g). Melting temperatures vary depending on the type of couverture used. It is therefore vital to respect the temperatures given for each couverture over several hours. Dark couverture: 53/55°C Milk chocolate couverture: 48/50°C (the casein in the milk is damaged above 54°C). The best way to melt the chocolate is in a warming cabinet overnight (or ideally, 2 nights). Do not overheat, as this will make it impossible to work the chocolate, especially milk chocolate. Make sure you do not work the same chocolate too many times, as it will eventually start to make bubbles and thicken. Working temperature: Keep the ambient temperature in the workplace as steady as possible, between 18°C and 20°C, while working the chocolate. Never work on a chilled marble slab always on a dry marble slabe.

TEMPERING Tempering is a technique which enables the fat in the chocolate (cocoa butter) to crystallise (harden) to a stable, homogenous form and to obtain an end product (moulded or coated) which is glossy and brittle and will keep for a long time without whitening. Respect the following temperatures: • For manual tempering, bring the entire mass to a high temperature (T1), pour 3/4 of the mass onto a non-chilled marble slab. Work with a spatula until the temperature falls (T2). Add this couverture to the remaining 1/4 and mix well to bring he mixture to T3. • When tempering chocolate manually for a coating machine, bring the chocolate to T4, not T3, as the warmer, tempered couverture will cool without thickening when poured into the coating machine. This means that it will reach the right temperature for working, and which has to be maintained throughout the coating process. • When machine-tempering, check the temperatures displayed by dipping a thermometer into the couverture.

The VALRHONA nut range • Pralines : VALRHONA pralines are the result of a blend of sugar and nuts made according to traditional know-how and sublimating all the subtle flavours of the nuts. As for our cocoa beans, VALRHONA use the best selected and quality tested nuts. • Roasted pralines: VALRHONA bring out the best in high quality nuts - hazelnuts from Rome in Italy and almonds from Valencia in Spain and propose a range of pralines with various textures and tastes to satisfy all tastes. The notes of freshly and perfectly roasted almonds and hazelnuts blend harmoniously with the caramelised notes. • Pralinés Fruités: To master the development of nutty flavours, VALRHONA have selected the best hazelnuts from Rome in Italy and the best almonds from Valencia in Spain. Intensity and elegance are obtained thanks to VALRHONA’s traditional caramelising methods which bring out the round warm notes of the nuts. • Giandujas & Almond pastes: VALRHONA select the best nuts to manufacture giandujas and almond pastes. • Giandujas: Cocoa beans and hazelnuts are roasted separately at specific temperatures then combined before being finely ground. • Almond pastes: The almonds are blanched and cooked in a sugar syrup. The mixture is then ground more or less finely, depending on its end use.

Storage and best before dates CHOCOLATE All our chocolates should be kept away from light, dust and damp, preferably at 16-18°C and at 55-60% humidity. In order to preserve the taste, texture and appearance of our chocolates, please respect the best-before dates marked on the packaging. NUTS Pralines and giandujas are dry and oily products. They should be kept away from heat, humidity and light at a temperature of 20°C. If your containers of pralines need to be stored for long periods, turn them upside down every 10 days to avoid the oils rising to the surface. Almond pastes 50 and 70% contain moisture. They should be kept away from humidity and stored in a cool place at 8°C to avoid mould forming. Almond paste decorations 33% are less sensitive; we recommend storage at 15°/16° C maximum.

Frequently asked questions for problems with chocolate making • Chocolate has bloom, or white pigment, on the surface. If the chocolate has been properly tempered, this problem is caused by moulding (moulds too hot) or storage (ambient temperature too high, sudden temperature change, or ambient humidity too high). • Chocolate is split. The moulds have undergone a sudden change in temperature. Do not refrigerate the mould too soon. The chocolate should not be cooled at too low a temperature: - Moulded chocolate candies: cool at 10°C/12°C. - Coated chocolate candies: cool at 15°C/18°C • When I coat chocolate candies, the couverture thickens, it becomes “oily”. The couverture has over-crystallised. Raise the ambient temperature which is too cold. If the couverture takes on a satin sheen, immediately add a small amount of couverture at 50°C for dark couvertures, or 40/45°C for milk couvertures. If the couverture is really too cold, it will have to be tempered again (after melting the chocolate for at least 3-4 hours). • It is difficult or impossible to remove chocolates from the mould. The proper cycle was not respected while tempering. Check the temperatures. The couverture you use must be suitable for moulding (very fluid). Make sure you let the moulds cool long enough. • Dull patches appear on the chocolates after removal from the mould. The moulds you used are too cold. They must be at room temperature (20/25°C) for moulding.

Fat bloom Pralines, giandujas and almond pastes are rich in nuts and therefore in free fats. They consequently tend to develop bloom on the coating couverture when used for chocolate fillings: this is what is called “fat bloom”. To reduce the problem of bloom, store finished chocolate candies (coated or moulded) in a cool place, at a temperature of 10/12°C.

Combine all ingredients together, except for the chocolate, in a kitchen mixer or food processor. Melt the chocolate down and stir vigorously into the mixture. BAKING: Always bake in frames (because of the paste texture) in 180°C oven, vent opened. This sponge doesn’t raise much but keeps its initial thickness after baking. Sprinkle with marinated raisins or other fruits directly over the paste before baking.

Thanks to its texture, this sponge can be used to make regular cakes or ice cream cakes and Yule logs.

CREAMY TEXTURES 2

CRUNCHY TEXTURES

• Creamy textures are made in the same way as ganaches, by creating an emulsion. • When butter is used, and to make a perfect fondant texture, it must never be added at above 40°C (35/40°C). For chocolate cremeux, the temperature must be higher than 35°C to be able to pour out.

2 .1 - Crunchy praliné 200 g ÉCLATS D'OR 100 g JIVARA LACTÉE 40% 230 g PRALINÉ 50% OR 60% OR PRALINE FRUITY

Melt the milk chocolate Jivara couverture at 50°C. Mix with the praliné and add the Éclats d’Or. Stir in carefully, making sure that the Eclats d’Or is completely coated. Spread on a tray and leave to crystallize in a refrigerator. Cut to the size of the log or dessert and insert.

Whipping cream 35% Full fat milk Egg yolks Caster sugar

Bring the cream to the boil with the milk and pour the mixture over the eggs, previously mixed (but not beaten) with the sugar. BAKING: Cook the mixture at 82-84°C until it coats the back of a spoon. Strain through a wire chinois and use immediately, or cool rapidly and set aside in a refrigerator.

It is not recommended to beat the yolks to the ribbon stage for a custard. This makes it more difficult to cook evenly and the texture tends to be more frothy than creamy. However, for technical reasons and for reasons of heatreaction, we recommend mixing the yolks with the sugar early enough (3-4 hours previously) to ensure that the lecithin is less sensitive to the heat, thus preventing flocculation when cooking.

BASIC CUSTARD: Use recipe 3.1. CREMEUX: strain the hot custard through a chinois, then make an emulsion with the chopped or melted chocolate using a rubber spatula (as for a ganache) so as to obtain a smooth, shiny and elastic texture. For a perfect emulsion, finish with a hand-held mixer taking care not to introduce any air and working at a temperature above 35°C (45°C maximum). This method ensures that the creamy texture remains supple even after thawing.

Soak and drain the gelatine. Add all the ingredients except the butter. Stir while bringing to the boil to obtain a “jellified” texture. Once the mixture has cooled to around 35-40°C, add the butter and make an emulsion using a hand-held mixer. Pour immediately into moulds or rings and freeze. If you are making a cremeux with a cocktail of citrus fruits, choose the “Cremeux with fruit pulp” recipe.

3 .9 - Namelaka (means « very tender » in Japanese)

Heat the 100 g of whipping cream to boiling point and add the gelatine (previously softened in a large volume of water, then drained). Pour a small amount of this mixture over the praline. The mixture rapidly separates. Make an emulsion in the blender using the paddle attachment. Stabilize the emulsion, gradually adding the rest of the cream so as to obtain a shiny and elastic texture, indicating the start of a good emulsion. If the mixture is too thick, warm it before pouring it into rings.

Warm the cream and pour over the egg yolks previously mixed with the sugar. Add the gelatine, previously soaked and drained, and cook this mixture at 82-84°C. Strain through a chinois to stop the cooking process, briefly mix with a hand-held mixer and cool rapidly. Pour into moulds while still runny or when it has reached a creamy consistency. CARAMEL FLAVOUR, add 50 g of sugar to the recipe and make a dry caramel. Deglaze with the lukewarm single cream then continue as above. HONEY FLAVOUR, choose a strong-flavoured honey (e.g. lavender) and use 100-150 g instead of the sugar. LIQUEURS, leave the mixture to cool to prevent the flavour from evaporating. INFUSIONS, infuse in cold whipping cream for 24 hours before use, or hot, depending on the type of infusion. Remember to replace the weight of cream lost during infusion.

For better coagulation during cooking and to prevent the risk of flocculation, we advise you to mix the yolks with the sugar (without beating) in advance and to refrigerate the mixture for 3-4 hours before use. Mix well before using.

MOUSSE TEXTURES

6 .4 - Chocolate mousse on custard base

• The final mixture of chocolate mousses must be warmer than the crystallisation point of the cocoa butter (26-28°C, depending on the chocolate used), i.e. between 28 and 31°C maximum. Use a ladle to transfer. This enables you to work even very light mousses without destabilising the foamy texture. • A glossy, supple mousse is the sign of successful texture and taste.

600 g Basic custard 900 g Whipping cream 35%

BASIC CUSTARD: Use recipe n° 6.2. MOUSSE: Make an emulsion with the melted chocolate and the custard. The temperature should be 45-50°C. If needs be, stabilize the emulsion by adding a small amount of the lightly whipped cream. When the mixture is smooth, add the rest of the cream. 3D

We recommend poaching the mixture because coagulation stabilises its water content. This helps it to retain its light, airy texture when frozen and defrosted.

Poach the egg yolks, whole eggs, sugar and water together at 82-84°C in a bain-marie. Beat at medium speed. Stop before the mixture is completely cold and make the mousse immediately.

Each type of recipe can be appreciated differently with its variety of more or less pronounced chocolate flavours. This enables you to vary your creations and achieve a good balance of texture and flavour. There are two ways of defining chocolate mousses: • They can be frothy, liquid preparations which can be made more consistent by adding chocolate. • They can be chocolate made into a mousse by adding frothy liquid preparations. The texture of the dessert, both in the dish and on the palate, will depend largely on the percentage of cocoa butter but also on the dry cocoa matter contained in the chocolate used in the recipe. A good chocolate mousse should be: light, non fatty, melting on the tongue, easy to cut without sticking too much to the knife.

BASIC BOMB MIXTURE: Use recipe n°6.1. MOUSSE: Melt the chocolate at approximately 50-55°C depending on the type of chocolate used (45°C max. for milk chocolate and Ivoire couverture). Whip the cream. Add a little of the lightly whipped cream to the warm chocolate to obtain a smooth, supple mixture similar to the other mixtures. When the temperature reaches 50-55°C, finish by rapidly incorporating the bomb mixture and the remainder of the whipped cream using a scraper or rubber spatula. 3D

Melt the chocolate at 50-55°C depending on the type used (45°C maximum for milk chocolate and Ivoire couverture). Beat the chocolate until it forms an emulsion, adding the about 1/3 of the boiled liquid cream to obtain a shiny and elastic texture.

It is not recommended to beat the yolks to the ribbon stage for a custard. This makes it more difficult to cook evenly and the texture tends to be more frothy than creamy. However, for technical reasons and for reasons of heat reaction, we recommend mixing the yolks with the sugar early enough (3-4 hours previously) to ensure that the lecithin is less sensitive to the heat, thus preventing flocculation when cooking.

I N F O

This recipe is recommended primarily for short-life desserts, or in a restaurant setting for chocolate mousses served in glasses or dishes. Since it contains raw, fresh eggs, this mousse is extremely fragile and must therefore always be served chilled at 5-10°C maximum.

Melt the chocolate at 50-55°C (45°C maximum for milk chocolate). Whip the egg whites until stiff, adding the sugar at the start. Whip the cream. Dilute the chocolate with one-third of the whipped cream and the yolks to obtain a supple mixture. Adjust the temperature to 45-50°C. To finish, rapidly fold in all of the whites and the remainder of the lightly whipped cream.

Gradually pour the boiling hot mixture (cream + inverted sugar + glucose) over the chopped couverture, stirring from the centre to create a shiny and elastic core, showing the start of an emulsion. Maintain this texture right to the end of the mixing stage. Continue mixing, gradually adding the liquid. Mix with a hand-held mixer to finish. Set aside then combine equal parts of the ganache and cold whipping cream. Refrigerate to crystallise for 2 or 3 hours, or even better, overnight, then whip to obtain piping consistency or a texture which is firm enough to be worked with a spatula.

GLAZES AND ICINGS

7 .5 - Soft chocolate glaze

• Some glazes are made with neutral glaze, the proportion of water for diluting varies from each brand. You can also adjust the fluidity of the glazes while hot, by adding water. • Always apply glazes at between 40-45°C. If too hot, the glazes will be too runny and could melt the surface of mousses, causing bubbles to form.

450 g Whipping cream 35% 1200 g ABSOLU CRISTAL (if using IVOIRE, use 300 g ABSOLU CRISTAL GLAZE 6 g of gelatine)

(Can be frozen after glazing fresh desserts without altering appearance or taste). Start with the cream and the chocolate and finish by adding the melted neutral glaze at 70-80°C. (Mix using a spatula to avoid forming air bubbles). Strain through a chinois. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: It is very important to form a perfect emulsion. Just before using the glaze, melt it in a microwave oven to avoid air bubbles from forming and above all to prevent destabilizing the emulsion. This type of glaze will retain its shiny and elastic texture for 48-72 hours after defrosting or use. Temperature is different depending on the type of chocolate used: 2/ • For Ivoire glazes, temperature should be 25°C-30°C. 8D 4°C • For dark or milk chocolate glazes, the temperature should be 30-40°C.

CHOCOLATE

7 .1 - “Absolu” soft dark chocolate glaze

ARAGUANI 550 g

ABSOLU will give your desserts an original touch, colour and flavour of chocolate, as well as ensuring a perfectly balanced taste for your own original recipes. ABSOLU can be frozen and defrosted without losing its glossy aspect. ABSOLU must be diluted (30-80 g of water for 1 kg) before melting to obtain the right texture for glazing desserts. For éclairs, use only 10-30 g of water. ABSOLU can be perfectly used on any frozen products (in that case use at 55°C). Keep in cold storage. Use within one week maximum. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: Remove the seal. Depending on its use, add water. Cover again and heat to 35-55°C, preferably in a microwave oven at a low setting. Stir the centre before applying or mix with a hand-held mixer.

Weigh out all the ingredients accurately. Take a small amount of the milk from the total volume for the recipe and mix with the almond paste. Put the rest of the milk in the pasteuriser (double jacket steamer) on a high setting, or in a pan. When the mixture reaches approximately 30°C, add the skimmed milk powder, the sugar, the stabilizer, the inverted sugar and the cream. At 45°C, add the softened almond paste, stirring vigorously. Carry out one entire pasteurisation cycle. Leave to mature for 12 hours at +4°C. Churn. Once the ice is extruded, freeze in closed containers at between -18°C and -20°C.

You need to stir in each successive ingredient vigorously, especially the almond paste and the stabilizer. We strongly recommend using a hand-held mixer.

11 .1 - Chocolate ice cream Take some of the sugar and mix it with the stabilizer. Heat the milk and the milk powder. At 30°C, add the sugar and inverted sugar. At 45°C, add the sugar and stabilizer mixture and the chopped or melted chocolate. Pasteurize in a pasteurizer or in a pan. Mix vigorously and cool in a chiller or freezer. Leave for 4-12 hours at +4°C, then mix vigorously with an electric mixer to obtain a homogeneous mass. Churn. Store at -18°C and serve at between -10°C and -12°C.

Weigh all the ingredients accurately. Carefully mix the stabilizer with a small amount of the sugar. Put the milk in the pasteurizer on a high setting, or in a pan. When the temperature reaches approximately 30°C, add the milk powder, the sugar, the inverted sugar and the cream. At 45°C, add the praliné,stirring very vigorously, followed by the sugar and stabilizer mixture. Pasteurize for one complete cycle. Leave to mature for 12 hours at +4°C. Churn. Once the ice is extruded, freeze in closed containers at between -18° and -20°C.

You need to stir hard as you add each ingredient, especially in this case with the praline and the stabilizer.

Using the paddle attachment, make an emulsion with the praline and the 125 g of warmed cream. Add the cream little by little. The mixture will separate rapidly at first. Gradually add the rest of the cream to obtain a very shiny and elastic texture, indicating that the emulsion has formed. At the same time, make a Swiss-style meringue with the whites and sugar. Heat to 65°C in a bain-marie. Beat until cold. Add a small amount of meringue to the liquid praline and cream mixture to soften it. Finally, incorporate the rest of the meringue and the whipped cream with a rubber spatula or scraper. Pour into moulds and freeze immediately.

What is a ganache? This is a mixture of fat (from the chocolate) and water (from cream, milk, or possibly, fruit pulp). A ganache is an emulsion, like mayonnaise: stable, supple, glossy and slow-drying. The texture of a ganache can often be improved by adding dairy butter, inverted sugar, glucose syrup, dried nut pastes…

The differentes applications of ganache: Ganaches will have specific textures depending on the recipes: • Individual chocolate candies: firm but very melting texture • Moulded chocolate candies or hollow forms: very supple or even liquid texture. • Desserts and small cakes: soft texture, firmness depending on the type of assembly. • Chocolate sauces: liquid, but supple texture at 35-40°C.

Butter COCOA POWDER Egg whites All purpose flour Icing sugar

Basic technique: Bring the whipping cream and inverted sugar mixture to the boil and gradually pour over the chopped chocolate. Ganaches, which are basically emulsions, can be mixed indifferent ways. It is simply recommended to avoid incorporating any air into the mixture. The greater the friction, the finer the emulsion will be, and the better the texture and preservation. You can use a rubber spatula, a paddle beater, a blender (with or without a vacuum) or a hand-held mixer. As soon as you add liquid, the emulsion begins to form and the mixture thickens rapidly and frequently separates, which is a normal occurrence due to saturation of the fat. The development of a shiny and elastic core indicates that the emulsion has formed, and this consistency must be maintained while the rest of the liquid is added gradually. Having finished mixing, check that the temperature is not higher than 40°C then add the diced butter. For a ganache with alcohol, add the alcohol once the emulsion has finished forming. There are no rules for the amount of alcohol to add; it is simply a question of the desired taste and texture. If you mix manually or using the paddle attachment of the beater, we advise you perfect the emulsion with a hand-held mixer.

13 .1 - Classic dessert ganache ADVICE FOR USE: For reasons of texture and cost-effectiveness, we advise you to use fluid (uncrystallized) ganaches for making desserts and small cakes. However, if a recipe calls for a firmer ganache, make the mixture a few hours before pouring out the dessert to allow the ganache to start crystallizing. To soften a crystallized ganache, put it in a microwave oven on moderate heat.

CHOCOLATE CANDY FILLINGS

13 .2 - Ganache for framed chocolate candy filling RECOMMENDED METHOD: (valid for the 2 recipes, plain or fruit pulp ganache). To avoid destabilising the emulsion, pour the ganache into the frame immediately after mixing and before it crystallizes, at 35-38°C for dark couvertures, 30-35°C for milk chocolate couvertures and 27-28°C for Ivoire couverture (cool it in a bain-marie). Once framed, store at 16-18°C at 60% hygrometry to crystallize. Leave to crystallize for 48 hours, turn the trays upside down and remove the plastic or paper sheet covering the ganache. Cut into the desired shape. Allow crystallization to finish if necessary. Coat.

14 .3 - Framed filling 13 .3 - Chocolate Nama ganache Bring the whipping cream to the boil and pour it gradually into the chopped chocolate, stirring at the centre to create an elastic, shiny and smooth core, sign of a well started emulsion. The temperature of mixing must not be below 35°C for a perfect result. When all the cream has been incorporated, stir the butter in at a temperature between 35 and 40°C. To get a perfectly smoothed emulsion, it is advised to process the ganache with a hand held blender making sure not to incorporate any air bubbles in. Once processing is done, pour the ganache in a frame before its crystallisation, at a temperature above 35°C, avoiding like this the emulsion destabilisation of the ganache. Leave to crystallise in the fridge, as opposed to chocolate candy regular ganache which crystallises at 12/14°C. Coat both sides of the ganache with a very thin layer of chocolate and cut into the wanted size with a cutting guitar device.

Melt the dark chocolate hazelnut gianduja to 40°C. Boil the whipping cream, mixed with the inverted sugar. Using the paddle attachment, mix a third of the hot cream into the dark chocolate hazelnut gianduja. At the beginning, a rapid separation occurs. Gradually add the rest of the cream to obtain a texture that is very shiny and elastic, the sign of a successful emulsion. Finish by incorporating the alcohol. Pour into hollow forms as soon as the temperature of the mixture reaches 26/28°C.

• ALMOND PASTE FILLINGS We recommend using almond paste 50% in order to assure optimum conservation of chocolate candies. Almond paste 70% will cause bloom more rapidly because of its high fat content. In order to stiffen the texture of the almond paste, it is possible to add 5 to 10% cocoa butter. In this case, treat it as a flavouring.

PURE COCOA MASSES

15 .1 - Chocolate applications Create your own chocolate blocks and couvertures from Equator, Venezuela, Dominican Republic and Madagascar, by adding the same origin cocoa pure pastes of the Pure Origin Grand Cru. Personalize the cocoa contents of your chocolate blocks and of your couverture chocolates to create your own and unique recipes. (see below: uses in cake making and patisserie).

14 .6 - Almond paste for framed chocolate candies 1000 g ALMOND PASTE FROM PROVENCE 50% NUTS Flavouring: 80 to 100 g Fruit paste (walnut, coffee...) and/or 80 g Alcohol and/or 150 g Candied fruit, chopped and/or 50 to 100 g COCOA BUTTER

PLAIN ALMOND PASTE: Spread out the almond paste to the desired thickness and leave for a day at 16/18° C, then spray with couverture. Cut into the desired form using a pastry cutter or other form, then allow the part not covered with chocolate dry for a day. Coat. FLAVOURED ALMOND PASTE: To make the mixing easier without risking oiliness, it is imperative to use tempered almond paste. Take off 10% of the almond paste and add to it the fruit paste, alcohol, candied fruit, and, possibly, the cocoa butter. Add the rest of the mass. The mixing must be done with a paddle attachment or a dough hook. Excessive mixing will cause oil to separate from the mass. When the mixture is homogenous, continue as for the plain almond paste filling.
