We don’t think we’ll ever get bored of pretty Valentines pastries, and this limited edition eclair from Maitre Choux is simply divine!
Co-owner and pastry maestro Joakim Prat has once again created pure magic in the form of a Valentine’s signature special that will make hearts beat a little faster.
Red Love is a layered masterpiece. Filled with a combination of a light yet intense Tahitian vanilla cream and a refreshing raspberry purée beautifully textured with raspberry seeds, it is then beautifully covered with a raspberry-flavoured éclair-shaped macaron.
Red Love makes the perfect Valentine’s gift – or a sinfully indulgent self-purchase!
Meanwhile in a unique take on East Meets West, Joakim has put the finishing touches to two vibrant new offerings that are set to become instant classics when they are added to the main menu later this month.
Cérémonie du Thé is Maître Choux’s very own homage to the Japanese tea ceremony, the ancient and widely renowned ritual which celebrates the values of family and hospitality. Embodying tradition, beauty and taste, is a soft and delicate matcha tea flavoured éclair topped with apple spheres dipped in a lime jelly to complement the richness of the matcha glazing and to give both texture and zing.
Meanwhile American Dream will transport you across the Atlantic as its magical medley of banana, caramel and popcorn helps conjure up nostalgic childhood memories.
Baked, filled, iced and decorated on site each day at the South Kensington patisserie, Red Love and Cérémonie du Thé are both priced at £5.80 and American Dream at £5.20.
The delightful Red Love will be in store the first week of February.
