To serve:

For the Tuiles:
  1. In a mixer with whip or scraper attachment add softened butter and fine sugar.
  2. Mix butter and sugar together until pale yellow and forming ribbons by creaming on medium speed for approximately 3 minutes.
  3. Add the whole eggs, one at a time to loosen mixture. Add flour, pinch of salt & fresh cracked grains of paradise and vanilla extract.
  4. Cover a baking tray with parchment. Take one heaping soup spoonful of mixture. Use a circular motion with the back of the spoon to spread mixture onto pan. Freeze remaining
  5. mixture for future use.
  6. Bake mixture in the oven at 425F/190C for 9 minutes or until the edges are lightly brown.
  7. Immediately take one tuile at a time and very gently shape with the help of a rolling pin. If it's too hard to shape, just put the tuile back in the warm oven for a few seconds.

  2. aroma. Grate Ibarra chocolate onto plate.
