Pastry FAQs Letter R




Ribbon-stage is the stage where the egg yolks are whisked (usually with some sugar) to a point where they are extremely foamy and very pale yellow in color. They are foamy because a lot of air has been incorporated into the egg yolks, and they are pale yellow for the same reason, because of oxidation.

Here is how you would check if you have reached ribbon stage;

  • Dip the whisk into the foamy egg mixture.
  • Lift whisk out of the foamy egg mixture and move it back and forth from one edge of the mixer bowl to the other.
  • If the lines that are created on the surface of the foamy egg mixture take a few seconds (3-4 seconds) to sink in and disappear, you have successfully reached a nice thick ribbon stage.
