Matcha-Sesame X Ceremonial matcha grade A
He describes the marriage of foods and flavors in his interesting recipe;
“Matcha tea goes very well good with sesame. To obtain superb results, I chose to work with the Sesame Praline from Chocolat Weiss. It is of very high quality and its taste is particularly strong. To keep a nice balance in the praline, I cut it with almond praline. It is important to maintain the quality of such Matcha (Ceremonial Premium - grade A) . If it is not stored correctly (in a cool place) it loses its taste and color, defining its quality. As for the Matcha cookie, you can also enjoy it on its own, just pay attention to its cooking, so that it is neither raw nor dry! "
