An ingredient from Reunion Island captures the attention of pastry chefs
Published on 24 July 2015
Originally homemade on the island’s farms over a wood fire, Galabé was originally used as a local candy. The production was a labor-intensive process, from the first pressing of the sugar cane which gives raw sugar, rich with minerals and nutritious elements. The process had almost been forgotten on Reunion Island, but after months of research and study of the processes involved, Payet [&] Riviere were able to re-create Galabé.
For gourmets keen to get their hands, or rather their palate, on this delicacy made of cane grown in volcanic soil, an online sale will be started soon, although visitors to Reunion Island can purchase the new product line beginning sometime in October when the launch takes place in grocery stores across the island.
