Mooncake and Chinese fortune cookies: the new food snobbism!

It’s the most tempting trend of the new season ! Cream puffs, madeleines, macaroons, Paris Brest and Saint Honoré can step aside…

Hermé & Conticini, the two rock stars of Frenchie have taken a much closer look at the great classics of Chinese desserts to give a little panache to the sweet treats of their new Fall/Winter collection!

To be tasted right away! Pierre Hermé has undertaken his own reinterpretation of the mooncake (this traditional cake that is eaten during at la mid-Autumn in China) obviously in a couture and spiritual version. Our sweet Picasso has imagined 4 treasure : from génoise to glazed chocolate stuffed with caramel, nougatine or praliné with sesame. A killer to be tested absolutely in a lunar kit.

This Winter, Philippe Continicini will be shaking up Fortune Cookies, those famous crunchy biscuits with special messages inside… At La Pâtisserie des rêves, these gourmet surprises will have a coconut flavor… We cannot wait..

Assortment of 4 Mooncakes: 35 € at Pierre Hermé in his pastry shops or online boutique until the 31st of October.

Fortune Cookies is scheduled at the Pâtisserie des Rêves in November.
