My mum is a fun of durian. One day she said to me: you are a pastry chef working in a chocolate company, make me a chocolate durian cake then! So I tried pairing different Valrhona chocolate with Durian. Finally….i found out the sea salt caramel flavour from Dulcey works perfectly well with durian.
