Perforated Rings

Micro perforated stainless steel band - 150 x 20mm

Pavoni & Gianluca Fusto designed the innovative Progetto Crostate, the new way to conceive the tart which is amazing to the taste and to the view.

The concept starts with the creation of a mix of equipment to allow the chef to obtain tarts with perfect finishing; the key product of this system are the MONOPORTIONS micro perforated stainless steel frames: the micro holes allow the shortcrust pastry to hang onto the frame, thus avoiding that the border collapses during baking and in addition allows for a perfect browning of the base.

  • Product code: XF1520
  • Shape: Round
  • Material: Stainless steel
  • Dimensions stainless steel band: ø150 x H20mm
  • Dimensions stainless baked tart: ø140 x H20mm

Suggestions on how to use the band best:

  • Prepare the shortcrust pastry according to your recipe
  • Allow the pastry to rest in the fridge at +4°C at least for 6 hours
  • Roll the pastry at a thickness of 2.5mm, then place it into the freezer for at least 1 hour
  • Butter the micro perforated band
  • Proceed with the lining of the tart as shown in the image, creating a separate base and stripes for the boarder
  • Push the pasty well against the frame and trim if necessary
  • The tarts are best baked on Pavoni micro perforated baking mats, available at the academy. Product codes: FOROSIL53 or FORSIL43.

Grey Kettle

Mini Meltinchoc – chocolate melting tank – 1.8L GREY

Mini Meltinchoc dry heat chocolate melters can be used for small productions. 


Melting tanks are designed to melt chocolate and / or hold tempered chocolate, they are not tempering machines. The tempering of chocolate needs to be performed manually.

  • Made of durable impact resistant plastic
  • Removable basin made of anodized aluminum
  • Not a tempering machine

Suggestions for chocolate tempering using the Mini Meltinchoc:

  • Set the maximum temperature on the Mini Meltinchoc and melt 70% of your overall chocolate amount, stirring frequently
  • When the chocolate is completely melted and has reached a temperature of 40-45°C, lower the thermostat of the Mini Meltinchoc to 30°C and add the remaining 30% of your chocolate at room temperature
  • Stir to mix and cool down to the “tempering” temperature recommended by the chocolate manufacturer (31°C for dark chocolate, 30°C for milk chocolate, 29°C for white chocolate)
  • This technique is called “tempering for insemination” and is useful to stabilize the crystals for cocoa butter
  • For precise tempering it is recommended to measure the temperature using a digital thermometer 

Suggestions for chocolate tempering using hand tempering method: 

  • Set the melting kettle to maximum temperature, add you chocolate and allow to melt stirring frequently
  • Turn the dial to the desired working temperature (31°C for dark chocolate, 30°C for milk chocolate, 29°C for white chocolate)
  • Pour the chocolate onto a marble slab and temper by hand, return the chocolate to the kettle set at the working temperature
  • For precise tempering it is recommended to measure the temperature using a digital thermometer

One week with Yann Duytsche

The great French master invites you to spend a week in his workshop through this delicious work of real, fresh, and gastronomic pastry.


The great French master Yann Duytsche invites you to spend a week at his workshop (Dolç – Barcelona – Spain) through his new book, published by Grupo Vilbo and so good..magazine. 

The book gathers the main creations that Duytsche makes every day in his shop, so they are more than tried and tested, true, real, not only because they work technically but because they have passed the most demanding of white glove tests: the customers.

But One Week with Yann is above all a way of entering the creative and commercial philosophy of this renowned chef, who identifies his activity with the operation of a restaurant more than with that of a classic pastry shop, “what we do here is to work what is sweet with a gastronomic sense … If the customer is going to eat the millefeuille at 3:00 p.m., I want it to be made at 1:00 p.m. at the earliest”, the chef comments.

Tea pastries, travel pastry, baked goods, cakes and mousses, ice creams, cups, bonbons, confectionery, snacks … are distributed throughout the book organized into chapters coinciding with the days of the week. It is not experimental pastry or prototypes. Yann Duytsche’s pastry is a fresh pastry, freshly made, intense flavors, gourmand, gastronomic, or as its author likes to say, “epicurean.”
