Chocolate always springs into our minds when we think of Easter treats. Chocolate, bunnies, hens and eggs and other wonderful creations are to be seen in sweet shops everywhere, but at Flavors of Paris decided to shake things up a little and seek out some super cool and creative Easter pastries for 2019. Here is a small selection of some Parisian treats which charmed us this year:
Paschaé by KL Pâtisserie
Chef Kevin Lacote is known among gourmets for his elegant, fine and perfectly balanced creations. High-flying desserts created with fresh, seasonal products and which are entirely natural. Lacote keeps it his creations so pure that he won’t even use natural food colouring.
Allowing his instinct and personal desires to direct him, Lacote dreams up desserts that are daring and delicate at the same time.
For Easter 2019, Kevin Lacote has married chocolate of different textures with mango and Sichuan pepper.
Plunge your spoon into an ethereal chocolate mousse to uncover small cubes of candied, fresh mango and continue to discover the surprising chocolate crémeux twisted with Sichuan paper (adding lemon and spicy notes). Lastly, a moist and crunchy base, made up of crusty chocolate and praline cake perfects this pure love of food moment!
