Valrhona Almond & Hazelnut Praline Paste
Valrhona almond & hazelnut praline paste is one of the finest French pâtisserie ingredients – made from richly flavoured Italian hazelnuts and Spanish almonds. They are roasted, ground and caramelised to form a fine, homogenous hazelnut paste. Hazelnut praline paste is ideal for use in chocolaterie and pâtisserie.
Praline paste is used in the classic French pastry, Paris-Brest, created in 1891 to celebrate the Paris to Brest bicycle race. A circular choux bun topped with slivered almonds is filled with a decadent praline cream. Hazelnut praline paste also makes a great oozing filling for chocolates. Also try mixing hazelnut & almond praline paste with some melted milk chocolate and feuilletine to make a fabulously crunchy base for layered cakes.
The praline paste may separate slightly over time – stir well before use.
