Online Essentials

Culinary professionals work every day to create and dream up new recipes for unique pastries and desserts. To support and enable them to constantly reinvent themselves, we developed The Essentials, a collection of basic recipes which has become a pastry-making benchmark.

This indispensable tool, last updated in 2018, returns in 2023 with more than 20 recipes reworked with a sense of Reasonable Indulgence.

A tool for creativity

A veritable bible of pastry recipes made with Valrhona products, professional pastry chefs can consult our online version for all the techniques and applications developed by L'Ecole Valrhona, as well as new features they can use in the daily pastry-making trade.

The online module automatically recalculates recipes for them based on which product they use, plus they can create ready-to-use recipes and invent new versions whenever and wherever their imagination takes them.
