What: No Bake Desserts Master Class - Chef Jacob's Cook and Dine series
Where: Courtyard by Marriott, Anna Salai, Teynampet, Chennai
Held on 8th July 2016.
The cook and dine series of Marriott Chennai continues to intrude the cooking enthusiast. And for the month of July (2016) the master class got more interesting with delicious desserts; icing to the cake was the tag "No Bake Desserts", and it couldn't get much more interesting. As Chef Jacob started presenting some promising desserts without eggs and oven, the energy at Rhapsody (venue) amped up.
The recipes due for the class was Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars and Nutella Cheesecake; two things that can never go wrong is peanut butter and nutella. I was drooling more than paying attention to the cooking details.
You are going to love this peanut butter bars much more if you are a fan of Reese's peanut butter cups; the crumbly crunch from the biscuit with the creamy peanut-butter and chocolate layer will make you salivate. The glimpse of salt makes the taste sublime.
Silky and yummy nutella cheesecakes were next in line, it was made without egg or setting agent so it got blissful and perfect for the vegetarians. The crusty base and crispy nuts balanced the sweetness perfectly. The cheesecake cannot become more creamy, silky and chocolatey.
And wiser people become Chefs (atleast I think so), he was patient enough to answer all the questions directed to him about the delights. Before winding off, my most favourite cooking technique - Tempering Chocolate was taught. Accuracy, patience and practice were the virtue to get beautifully shaped curls and designs of chocolate. And he used white chocolate, the texture was smooth and taste was divine.
