PLANT BASED CAKES - " THE UNIVERSAL PASTRY "

BY RAMON MORATÓ

Ramon Morató made a YUMGO Made dessert for Cacao Barry and shares for us: “Cacao Barry design team has been concerned to new consumer trends and especially to the plant based cuisine. In recent years, we took the gamble of integrating plant based ingredients into our recipes and gradually want this to be systematic.

On many occasions, we encounter difficulties in obtaining quality products which offer a taste and technically similar result to that offered by the ingredient of animal origin. This is particularly the case with eggs.

We discovered YUMGO White then YUMGO Yolk and finally YUMGO Whole which gave us the opportunity of replacing egg products in our plant based recipes. This without the need of  recipes adjustments and  a high quality result.

My team and I are unconditional fans of YUMGO and we believe it is essential to support this kind of initiative in order to be able to meet these products at the distributors who will provide solutions to artisan pastry chefs to offer plant-based pastries in all normality. "
