How to work with aspic?

Many people are afraid of recipes with aspic. But there is no reason. The only thing to be careful about is not to underestimate the aspic’s solidification time. If you are too eager, the aspic will tear when you flip it out of the mold and all your work will be ruined.

It is equally good to let the individual layers of aspic with different ingredients solidify when creating more demanding delicacies. For easier tipping, it is recommended to cover the molds with food foil. But there are also special molds and molds designed directly for aspic, which have a special non-stick surface.
