Cooking With Astrik | Chocolate Tiramisu

This month we launched a Kickstarter campaign for our newest material, Astrik. This project represents over 2 years of research and design, months of testing and development, hours of planning and preparation from our staff, and 3 video shoots. The result is a 3-piece bowl set that is even more eco-friendly than our current line-up of kitchenware.

We couldn’t resist whipping up some chocolate tiramisu, which turned out to be quite delicious. It’s a recipe that goes well for any gathering of family and friends, serving as a nice dessert following a meal. The light texture remains consistent throughout, while providing a rich and creamy chocolate finish that pairs well with your favorite coffee.
