Example? A Paris-Brest revisited as an éclair (5,50€), easier to eat, a strawberry shortcake presented in a glass, the ultra slim opéra (5,50€)…
Without forgetting, the madeleine, his childhood souvenir, that comes in various flavours (plain, lemon zests, honey from the Vosges pine trees, garnished with black chocolate, starting at 1,60€…).
