Simple Steps to Crafting the Perfect Ganache Spread


• Bring the cream, milk, salt and honey to a boil.Infuse the vanilla bean which was previously scraped.

• Melt the sugar in order to obtain a clear caramel and deglaze with the preceding mixture.

• Pour over the previously chopped chocolates. Allow the entire mixture to melt for two minutes.

• Emulsify with a whisk by making small concentric circles to obtain a smooth, shiny mixture.

• Pour the ganache at 31°C into a jar.

• Wait until it is cold before closing the lid.


Tip from our Chef: if you do not have a food thermometer, put a little ganache on your lips. At 31°C, you should have a sensation of cold.
