Peruvian voladores have been a popular desert in Peru for hundreds of years and almost always makes an appearance for a special occasion like Mother’s Day. The Spanish word volador means “flying” in English, apparently Voladores are made of crispy thin layers of pastry and typically filled with dulce de leche, chocolate or a fruit jam. We’ve created a chocolate sauce and topped it with a dusting of pink peppercorns and pink Himalayan sea salt for a unique twist on the traditional desert.
This is created by


  1. 1Sift flour in salt. Make a well in the center and add egg yolks. Combine egg yolks and flour mixture, until dough is formed.
