Yushi | Cider Vinegar Archive

We are particularly sensitive to Yushi's work and approach, so we wanted to introduce her to you.

When she moved to France, Yushi was surprised to see the almost non-existent offer of healthy desserts. In particular, she was looking for cakes that would not make her feel guilty because of their high sugar and calorie content, as she was used to eating them. So she started making her own creations!

Dessert has its place in a healthy daily routine!

This is his credo. For this, Yushi always seeks to limit sugar intake. Its objective: to seek the perfect and subtle flavors to satisfy the taste buds. In this way, it avoids drawing their attention to the absence of added sugars. To top it off, Yushi also seeks to use good fat to optimize fiber and vitamin intake, etc. & always with this idea of ​​reducing caloric intake in mind.

One day in December, she uses her bottle of archi'v cider vinegar for the final touch of acidity which will perfect the sauce for her delicious gingerbread.

These little things that change everything, allow Yushi's cooking to achieve so much flavor without an ounce of guilt.

Now that you know everything, the healthiest gingerbread is yours!
