What’s a festive dinner without a dessert of wonders? For the season Christmas – New Year 2013, the Maisons of Haute patisserie such as Ladurée, Pierre Hermé, Fauchon and Dalloyau have presented the defilé of sweet alchemies, nestled in snow-white layers of chocolate, hazelnut cream, nougat and macadamia nut. Roasted almonds, raisins and red fruits meet Bourbon vanilla cream, Mont-Blanc, lemon curds and tree trunks in a spectacular way, introducing the palate into the dreamy dessertland. Delight yourself with fashionable Yule logs, high-design cakes or ice-cream festive trees…
