We just made an awesome test batch of ginger burnt sugar caramel sauce using Aftelier Perfumes Chef’s Essences “Fresh Ginger”. We followed a basic recipe for burnt sugar caramel sauce (1 cup sugar, 6Tbs unsalted butter, 1/2 cup cream) and added a good shake of Fresh Ginger essence.
We worked with Mandy Aftel to produce a set of Chef’s Essences for chocolatiers and have a set available at our main store. We’ve been a little slow to make good use of these amazing essential oils and absolutes. They are a precious bundle of untapped potential. We can’t wait to explore them further. Based on initial trials they are very easy to use and can be added directly to chocolate to perfectly infuse the flavor.
We currently have the following flavors available: Fresh Ginger, Bergamot, Frankincense, Blood Orange, Cognac, Fir, Raspberry, Cacao, Peppermint. Supplies are limited.
