La St Valentin
On the 14th of February
On the 14th of February, surprise your valentine and get one delicious pastry of ours. Especially made for that special day, our maître pâtissier thought of a perfectly balanced chocolate blondie with a crémeux au chocolat dipped in white chocolate and cocoa butter, finished with a dollop of raspberry ganash and fresh raspberry on top. Light, sweet, melting in the mouth, this little treasure will light up the night..
Les Galettes des rois
From the 6th of January until the 6th of February
Let’s start 2020 with a royal treat: the French tradition of the ‘Epiphane’ (Driekoningen). We present you the Galettes des Rois. With the Galettes des Rois we celebrate the visit of baby Jezus by the three kings on the 6th of January. But don’t worry, we Frenchies eat the Galettes de Rois all month long!
We have 2 wonderful types of galettes:
. The FRANCHIPANE, introduced by the Florentine nobleman Franchipane in the 14th century is a wonderful cake made of puff pastry filled with a creamy almond paste.
. And then the rich galette of puff pastry filled with POIRE ET CHOCOLAT.
And quelle surprise; inside each of the galette is a hidden treasure, be careful not to break your teeth…
