A recipe calls for 250 g d’ivoire. Can anyone tell me what it is? I know it is some kind of covering but I don't know what kind and there are no pictures.

Can anyone help?

Thank you

    The rest of the recipe should provide some clues.
    Is ivoire an ingredient that is the color of ivory or that comes from the Ivory Coast, like cocoa?

    I found this reference: Valrhona Ivoire A slightly sugared white chocolate, well balanced with delicate flavors and a very fine texture. Suitable for pastry, chocolate fillings, moulding,

    The website was called chocosphere....
    Try searching Ivoire white covering.

    Hi all,

    The product is used to make a ganache to fill a choux pastry, if that helps?

    I am tempted to go with white chocolate covering.

    Valrhona is a brand and Ivoire is a product name ... Would the recipe really say that?

    What is done with those 250 g in the recipe?
    What other ingredients is there?

    I found a choux recipe that called for "colorant ivoire" for the icing (although 250 g sounds like a lot of food colouring)
