Rediscover the Merveilleux at Benoit Paris
Benoit Paris suggests to rediscover a classic of French pastry, the Merveilleux. This cake, traditionally composed of delicate and crispy meringue layers, Chantilly and covered with chocolate chips is a beautiful reference to the Merveilleuses. These women under the Directory regime, were well-known for the extravagance of their clothes.
Edwin Carrière, Pastry Chef of the restaurant has imagined a fruity and light version of this dessert. Made of delicate and crispy meringue layers, a mint Chantilly, stewed strawberries, all covered with biscuit breadcrumbs…He brings back to life the traditional baking methods: no cake mould used, the layering is entirely done with a spatula.
A very Parisian dessert to celebrate the arrival of spring!
