Learn how to cook a Tuile | quick & easy recipe

Tuile is that food item that can make your dish look amazing, no-matter what the other components of your plate are. It is used by many professional Chefs around the world as an ultimate food decoration. And it is actually very easy to make, as long as you have the right equipment (non-stick pan in this case) and use correct proportions in your recipe (see below).

In this recipe I’ve flavoured my Tuile with Saffron, but you can use any kind of flavouring in your Tuile, e.g. substitute Saffron tea with tomato juice, or beet juice. In these cases you will end up with Tuiles not only of different taste but also colour.
