WholeFruit Chocolate Truffle

This pastry was created with the aim to highlight how we can make small changes to improve the sustainability of the pastry industry. This petit gateau is 100% plant-based, utilizes the entire fruit, and does not employ the use of molds. The hope is by looking at aspects of our craft through a new lens, we will be able to make changes that ensure a more sustainable future.
