Signature Pastries

Animation Citron is one of my signatures. it contains preserved organic lemon, typical of middle eastern cuisine, and the diversity of textures that I showcase: from the moist sponge to the rich lemon cream and the crunchiness of the white chocolate and lemon zest crumble. The lemon meringue mousse lends an airy note.

The Paris Brest, without hesitation! Choux pastry, old style fashioned hazelnut and almond praline, a hint of caramel: Its definitely one of my classics.

The mille-feuille or thousand-layers filled with vanilla light pastry cream or a classic custard, is a pastry whose exact origin is unknown. Its modern form was influenced by improvements made by Marie-Antoine Carême.
