This exchange is important “, he says.

And I ended up taking the caramel technique for the hot kitchen, which helped me in the sensitivity to realize that the confectionery techniques could be used in the kitchen, “he says. The chef goes further: “The confectionery and the kitchen complement. Paradoxically, they are on opposite sides in the kitchen. They must always be together. “
