The beauties parade
We salivate/l'eau a la bouche?
All Paris has shown up for this concours/contest
Angelina -Carette - Gateaux et du Pain -Jean Millet- Laduree- Marletti- Lenotre- Patisserie des Reves- Petite Rose- Sebastien Gaudard- Stohre- Yamazaki
This perfect example (one of my favs) was made by Veronique Ung, recent grad of Lenotre.
The Austrian confectioner, Antoine Rumpelmayer, established Angelina, named after his daughter-in-law, in 1903. For over a century, the Angelina tearoom has established itself as a high point of Parisian gourmet pleasures.
Mont Blanc gâteau, in case you were wondering is a cake made in perfection with light whipped cream and chestnut cream vermicelli.
An 'extra' Mont Blanc creation created and present by pastry chef William Lamagnere
Another extra from Hotel Le Burgundie
All the pretty boxes...
Let the deconstructing/distruction begin!
My illegible notes ahem
We were to judge nez/scent, texture, taste/gout and general overall response with stars **** being the best and * degulase/the worst Ouch
Results will be on Raids Patisserie in a day or two.
Henceforth give me a plain roasted chestnut outside of Galeries Lafayette.Well at least today...
