At our relaunch event, we were extremely lucky to have the privilege of enjoying a special dessert dish concocted by Talita Setyadi of Beau, who used Krakakoa products to put together a very decadent chocolate lava cake. “I thought the idea of a lava cake would go well with the volcano that inspired the new name,” she laughs during prep.

If you’d like to recreate this decadent dish in the comfort of your own kitchen, here are the recipes for each individual component. Bon appetit!
