Just desserts today.
Solli and I went back (2nd time) to Arnaud Larher on 93, rue de Seine.
Yesterday we were getting Jour du macarons.
Looking over the gorgeous desserts..
It seemed like a good idea to try one out.
This citrus cheese cake looked tempting.
Have you tried the amazing app Waterlogue?
It turns any photo uploaded into a quasi-watercolor look.
Very tempting and yummy.
We decided on this meringue concoction layered with Chantilly whipped cream, a bit of raspberry inside and a hint of citron vert - very light, delicate and delicious.
We returned today with plans to try 2 desserts.
We may have to work our way through the whole collection like this sideways mille feuille.
When you stop by do taste the passion fruit/mangue tartiner.
Not easy to choose but since this was the last Ivoire left it helped us decide.
An attitude of serious research is required.
They were kind and cut our desserts perfectly in half.
Inside Ivoire sitting on a base of coconut crust. The outer shell and inner crème white chocolate with a touch of passion fruit and mango. Larher is a MOF from Brittany. He worked with Pierre Herme and does a mean Koign Amann, yet loves to play with tropical flavors.
Our purpose was to pick up a Jour du macaron shopping bag for Coco Jobard. She styled this photo for Herme's latest macaron book and worked on the recipes, so it seems only right she should have the bag.
Still some macaron watercolors left for the taking on Etsy.
Larher's Easter bunny-chocolate eggs.
More Easter chocolate to come.
