This was my second time coming back to Steven ter Horst Chocolatier for my dessert treat… even after a full stomach on all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ, I still could not resist the idea of buying some desserts from this place.
Never really like to try much citrusy dessert…. but decided to this time because ‘Lemon Lust’ just look amazing with the glossy lemony yellow dome petite. Not only it look amazing, it tasted amazing too - light and fluffy lemon mousse, centered with chocolate praline cream, cocoa sponge base, lemon glazed and toasted almond. The combination of taste was just like…YUM!!!… Even if you don’t like sour dessert (which this was not that sour at all, I’ve tried sour one!)… you should give this a try…
Mascarpone dream – creamy mascarpone mousse, centered with caramel hazelnut cream on a hazelnut dacquoise biscuit base, finished with glossy caramel glazed and decorated nicely with gold painted hazelnut. I had this dessert about 3 years ago, the presentation was slightly different, but the texture and flavor of this petit cake were pretty much the same (except to my memory, the caramel taste were stronger back then (the second picture).
Salted Caramel Tart – Crumbly short pastry filled with rich salted caramel and chocolate ganache…. It was a rich dessert… sweet…but not too sweet as the salt flakes cut through the sweetness of caramel and chocolate…
Hazelnut Heaven – After the first spoon, I knew that I can’t stop eating this…. It dissolved in your mouth. The smoothness of the silky hazelnut praline mousse and vanilla bavarios with a little chewiness of the sultana and the hazelnut biscuit base that has a nice popping crunch to it (I realized later that it was rice bubble) compliments each other really well…… This is really heaven!
The Fraux – creamy and fluffy vanilla mousse with almond daquoise biscuit base coated with milk chocolate and almond… just like my favourite ice cream Magnum Almond… simple but delightful.
Nuts about Chocolate – it’s all about nuts and chocolate for those who addicted to these two ingredients would need to try this out. Crunchy toasted chocolate almond with hazelnut dacquoise, silky-smooth chocolate cremeaux and creamy chocolate chantilly cream… this is one of those ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ with a ‘WOW’ dessert….
Loved it, liked it, enjoyed it…. I’ll be back again next time.. hoping to try out other desserts.. and of course their chocolate…..See you again =) !!!
