So, what is noix de gingko?

Noix de gingko, or ginkgo nuts, are a unique ingredient in the culinary world, with a texture that can be compared to that of chestnuts and a flavor profile that is nutty and slightly bitter. These ivory-colored nuts are derived from the ginkgo biloba tree, which is considered a living fossil and has been around for millions of years. In addition to their use in cooking, ginkgo nuts are also known for their medicinal properties and are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to improve cognitive function and circulation. However, it is important to note that raw ginkgo nuts contain a toxic compound and must be cooked properly before consumption.
