Combining the lightness of a pavlova , raspberries and nectarines with a rose whipped cream is the signature of this fruity and flowery collaboration between La Meringaie by chef Nicolas Bouillard and floral designer from Au Nom de la Pink . A very fresh and resolutely instagrammable little candy.

In the Marie Antoinette category

It's hard to do more cocotte than Ladurée 's latest dessert by Julien Alvarez .

The little gourmet would have loved this wild strawberry rhubarb tartlet pimped with a honey phyllo pastry, dried fruits shortbread with orange blossom and almond butter.

At the Ritz pastry counter , François Perret is bringing seasonal fruit tarts up to date . Obtaining of course the best possible products and using his best memories of childhood, when the kitchen smelled of good smells of fruits in the oven, the pastry chef imagines an apricot tart on a bed of thyme-lemon whipped cream. Like an air of vacation in Provence…

In the Southern category

Yet recognized for his great creativity, Philippe Conticini loves the Tarte Tropézienne so much that he wanted to keep the traditional recipe, however sublimated with notes of orange blossom . An airy brioche sprinkled with very crunchy grain sugar, garnished with a foamy Bourbon vanilla cream from Madagascar . A killer to bring back to dessert for your next dinner.
