Wondering how this works…here is an example. Chef Roca has created a pastry based off of Calvin Klein’s Eternity. The pastry version is made of vanilla cream, basil (pretty normal pastry ingredients), and mandarin orange granita – a semi-frozen dessert – with orange flower gelée – a flavor, in this case orange flower, blended with gelatin. Chef Roca is very inventive with his creations; however he commented on that the fact that with all of these feats accomplished, there is one that he has been unable to pull off.
