Guest Chef Demonstration with Johanna Le Pape
Award winning pastry chef and consultant Johanna Le Pape paid a visit to Le Cordon Bleu London to demonstrate some of her unique sweet creations. Johanna specialises in lighter, healthier gourmet pastries, using quality ingredients to create decadent dishes which are also nutritious.
Chef Johanna demonstrated three pastries, starting with a coffee Eclat. She constructed the dish creating textured layers with flavours of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. The elements of the dish were made using quality ingredients including Belgian chocolate, chestnut flour, almond paste and argan oil, forming an indulgently nutritious dessert.
For her next demonstration, Johanna made two chilled, no-bake desserts. The first consisting of a coffee ganache, made using cream, coffee, chocolate and gelatine. The second was an autumnal combination of almond milk, dark chocolate, pumpkin, honey dates and cinnamon.
