The weather this weekend was
too perfect, sunny with just a slight breeze. And to make things even better,
just introduced a line of spring sweets. I wrote about the desserts for
, and thought I’d offer a quick rundown here (visit both links for full details on the sweets).
The best way to do it is visit the bakery twice in a day. Once in the morning for croissants, the
, and this
Nutella Milk Bread
warm from the oven…
…and then go back in the afternoon for a few desserts. Start with the
Green Grape Sauternes Tart
Blueberry Blackberry Pavlova
(which happens to be gluten-free).
Rhubarb Fromage Blanc Cake
was inspired by one of Dominique’s first dessert creation at Daniel (where he was executive pastry chef for six years).
Matcha Passion Fruit Blanc Manger
combines milk pudding, matcha,
lilikoi/passion fruit, would be right at home in Hawai’i.
Then there’s the
Pink Grapefruit Honey Tart
that was offered for Valentine’s Day last month.
Hazelnut Caramelia Chocolate Cake
, aka giant Ferrero Rocher.
Coconut Mango Religieuse
is filled with fresh mango purée and coconut cream.
That’s all of the spring sweets…let me know which are your favorites ^_^
But while you’re there, don’t miss my all-time favorite menu item,
! They’re baked to order and come ten (or twenty) to a set, plush and lemony with crisp edges. I could probably eat a hundred in a sitting.
And the golden
Chocolate Chunk Cookies
with melty pockets of chocolate are irresistible when warm ^_^
