“Patikim“, a new section PalabasTayo premieres with a recipe of Chocolate Moelleux. It may sound a bit intimidating but it is really no different from Molten Chocolate Cake or its hyped up name, Chocolate Lava Cake. In her spotlight cooking show on Kumu, Chef Glo shared that NY chef, Jean–Georges Vongerichten claims to have invented this chocolate concoction but the French chef and chocolatier Jacques Torres disputes this.
