Chef at Work CHEF HOLGER DEH Mandarin Oriental

Easter Chocolate

Easter is just round the corner and indulging chocolate will be a way to spend especially on such a festive occasion. I was also excited too as I was eyeing those awesome goodness chocolate. I was rather lucky as I managed to get Chef Holger Deh Executive Pastry Chef of The Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur to share some of his delicious creations.

I was told that Chef Holger is a truly culinary artisan and he is best known for his contemporary style of desserts. He loves using a mixture of traditinal flavours and other unusual ingredients, mixing the sweet and the spicy, the sour and the salty. I was at his chocolate kitchen recently and it was so truly to see all his creations.
