As dessert cooking enthusiasts, it’s no surprise that we love to use Cointreau in our recipes. As a matter of fact, it was Max’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and I (Britt) made him a super delicious cake, with a Cointreau red berry ‘coulis’ in the middle. Coincidentally, a while later we had the chance to try out the new Cointreau Cuisine. OF COURSE we (Julie, Maxime and Britt) already marked this day in our agendas with a lot of bold colours and capital letters…
I will not spend too much time writing about this product, because you guys have to try it out for yourselves. Cointreau Cuisine consists, just like the regular Cointreau orange liqueur, of an appetizing orange taste and is enriched with a high concentration of aromas of fruits, flowers and herbs. So Cointreau Cuisine is actually an original flavour enhancer for all your sweet and savory dishes.
Olivier Morland, chef at Le Selecto in Brussels, gave us the opportunity to taste Cointreau Cuisine in an entire menu. We could very much appreciate the touch of orange in some crunchy, green asparagus with langoustines, Magret de canard with a delicious orange sauce, caramelized apples and mushrooms and, last but not least, a deeeeeelicious strawberry dessert.
This little kitchen prince is available in the following Belgian stores:
Delray (Appelmansstraat 5, 2018 Antwerpen), Wittamer (Grand Sablon 12, 1000 Brussels), Rob (Boulevard de la Woluwe 28, 1150 Brussels)
P.S: I could not resist the little orange liqueur sprayer and I already used it in some simple chocolate covered strawberries and a healthy red berry crème brulée. I would definitely recommend this since these orange flavours work so well with dark chocolate and red berries. Mmmmmmmmm….
