Ayle Cocoa Pastry

One day I saw on pictures on Facebook of my former colleague and a very good friend Emilia Slavova making an unknown for me dessert – Ayle Cocoa Pastry. I’ve never heard of it and I was very intrigued. An interesting combination of flavors and textures! And the ice cream supplement is my idea. It definitely softens and changes the texture!

Well, here it is!

Emy, special thanks about it! A real pearl in our culinary crown 🙂
