Everybody knows Belgian chocolate, but what about the cuberdon candy. For many Belgians (and certainly for myself) a beloved childhood taste, but unknown outside our frontiers. The recipe, that dates back to the 19th century, is a well kept secret only known by a handful of confisiers (aka candy makers). You can recognize a classic cuberdon as a violet collared sugar cone.

We analyzed the flavor of this local product and created a savory dish, a sweet dish and a cocktail.
