A pastry star visits Paris

 Portrait of Chef Frank Haasnoot guest of Yann Couvreur

Maybe his name does not mean much to you, but Frank Haasnoot receives more than 312k on Instagram and experience as intricate as a millefeuille. After working with a number of prestigious establishments from New York to Taiwan including Hong Kong, this Dutch pastry chef, laureate of the World Chocolate Masters in 2011, is highly respected.

Well, just imagine, the Pierre Hermé of The Netherlands will be coming through Paris from the 20th to the 22nd of September, invited by his peer and friend, Yann Couvreur. And it’s out of the question  from him to show up empty handed—get the drift? Three signature creations will be available exclusively in the Marais:

 Choco The Choco Coco and the Piedmont creation of Chef Frank Haasnoot

- The “Chocolate Tart”, a feuilleté of cocoa, crumble and creamy chocolate on a chocolate biscuit.

- The “Piedmont”, with a base of meringue, hazelnut praline and coffee whipped ganache.

- The “Choco Coco”, a mix of chocolate,coconut and lemon et citron with a whipped Malibu ganache.

Choosing, entails renouncing. To be meditated on.

Engineer during the day and pastry chef at night, Moulaye Fanny (@moulayefanny ex-@dimplesman) leads a pretty rock’n’roll double life.

Her fans (nearly 30,000 followers just on Instagram) will finally have the privilege of tasting her treats in real life during two exceptional weekends at The French Bastards.

On the menu? Her amazing lemon and buckwheat roll and her Black&Yellow tart with a vegetal charcoal pie crust, coconut dacquoise, sumac mango glazing, roasted pineapple,  yogurt runny heart and green lemon zest, worthy of a 3 star (€5.80 per individual tart, €23 for 4 persons).
