Hazelnut Praline is a truly versatile addition to any kitchen. Its rich, nutty flavour and satisfying crunch can enhance a wide variety of dishes. As a garnish, it adds a sophisticated touch to cakes and pastries, bringing both texture and flavour to your creations. In desserts, hazelnut praline provides a delightful contrast, making each bite more interesting.

Beyond its role as a garnish, hazelnut praline can be adapted for numerous uses. Blending it into a fine powder allows you to craft delicate tuiles, perfect for adding a professional touch to plated desserts. Coating this praline in chocolate transforms it into an elegant foodie gift, ideal for special occasions. Additionally, grinding it into a paste yields a smooth praline paste, which can be used in various recipes, from fillings to spreads. The versatility of hazelnut praline makes it an essential ingredient in our kitchen.
