  • When the chocolate is completely melted and has reached a temperature of 40-45°C, lower the thermostat of the Mini Meltinchoc to 30°C and add the remaining 30% of your chocolate at room temperature
  • Stir to mix and cool down to the “tempering” temperature recommended by the chocolate manufacturer (31°C for dark chocolate, 30°C for milk chocolate, 29°C for white chocolate)
  • This technique is called “tempering for insemination” and is useful to stabilize the crystals for cocoa butter

Obsession1

Obsession by Oriol Balaguer

A total of more than 80 creations of incomparable beauty by the hand of one of the greatest creators in current sweet cuisine.

Perfectly reflected in this universal pastry chef’s new book. A book in which Balaguer gathers his best cakes, desserts, petit fours, pastries and bakery, bonbons, artistic chocolate … 

The type of obsession Oriol Balaguer suffers from is great, as it is projected in multiple manifestations. His is an obsession for quality, for a job well done, for perfection, for continuously learning and improving, for beauty, for harmony, balance, aesthetics and the presentation of his creations, for the packaging of all his collections...

Balaguer is not a specialist, unless someone can be so many things at once. He is definitely one of the best chocolatiers in the current scene, with bonbon collections and unique artistic work. His restaurant desserts marked an era, with such sublime pieces such as his ‘Eight Textures of Chocolate’, the best dessert in the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie in 2001. But if we talk about baked or fermented doughs, his butter croissant has been awarded as the best in Spain in 2014. Therefore, Balaguer does not stand out in any one particular facet; he stands out in almost all of them. And this is due to the cited ‘almost obsessive’ level of requirement he faces each recipe, each elaboration, each new creation and every project.

Oriol Balaguer is signature patisserie. His is the pastry of collections, design, glamour and elegance. His is haute patisserie. But without neglecting taste (there is no reason for it), because, as the author notes, ‘it is very disappointing when the taste is not up to the expectations raised by the presentation of a dessert.’

One week with Yann Duytsche

The great French master invites you to spend a week in his workshop through this delicious work of real, fresh, and gastronomic pastry.


The great French master Yann Duytsche invites you to spend a week at his workshop (Dolç – Barcelona – Spain) through his new book, published by Grupo Vilbo and so good..magazine. 

The book gathers the main creations that Duytsche makes every day in his shop, so they are more than tried and tested, true, real, not only because they work technically but because they have passed the most demanding of white glove tests: the customers.

But One Week with Yann is above all a way of entering the creative and commercial philosophy of this renowned chef, who identifies his activity with the operation of a restaurant more than with that of a classic pastry shop, “what we do here is to work what is sweet with a gastronomic sense … If the customer is going to eat the millefeuille at 3:00 p.m., I want it to be made at 1:00 p.m. at the earliest”, the chef comments.

Tea pastries, travel pastry, baked goods, cakes and mousses, ice creams, cups, bonbons, confectionery, snacks … are distributed throughout the book organized into chapters coinciding with the days of the week. It is not experimental pastry or prototypes. Yann Duytsche’s pastry is a fresh pastry, freshly made, intense flavors, gourmand, gastronomic, or as its author likes to say, “epicurean.”
