Our catering heart throb? A really amazing flying tart, like a vertical vegetable garden.

(14€). The favorite dish of chic twigs.
The ultimate de chic of happy hour? Salty explosive éclairs, divinely fresh and totally off-beat: mango-salmon or crab apple (8€).
All those with a girly sweet tooth will go wild with « constellations », airy pop-cakes that look like flying saucers. Our darling fragrances? « Cherry-pistachio » or « peach-white chocolate». Addictive. (10€) to pick up at the pastry counter.
Now just make your way to L’Epicerie Fine to find other really amazing food accessories. Our favorite? The apricot and lemon « big bang macaroon », hallucinating and totally solar (26€ for a box of 12 macaroons) or their troubleshooting black current-violet « galactic jelly » , ideal to give a chic touch to a or a yogurt. (7,50€)
