Pastry recipe

“I wanted this dessert because for me it symbolises all the emotions of my career, my first love for citrus fruit that infused the Christmas markets of my childhood.  A finger dipped in praline when my apprenticeship master had his back turned and vanilla that comforted me. I called it “transmission” as it symbolises what I have been given and what I have given. I wanted to pass on the flame”.
