Banana Cream Pie by Amami

The most noteworthy desserts are not always lacking in imagination – indeed, sometimes excessive accumulation of various elements leads, paradoxically, to a certain sense of harmony. At Amami’s, the chefs do not turn their nose up at banana, and instead burry it under mounds of cream. Let us explore the Banana Cream Pie created by this Japanese-influenced Parisian pastry shop, whose appearance is a touch over the top. Continue reading “Banana Cream Pie by Amami”

Vanilla Tart by Utopie

There are moments when the world as it is seems unbearable, when we hit the wall of reality and stop in front of the barriers which rise ahead. Sometimes we feel chained, we give up on ideas which had previously guided our steps, we forsake certain paths… Yet in the end, this lucidity is a gift for utopians who – confronted with reality – search for, build, and escape into a new paradise.

Apple and Hazelnut Tart by Méert

What we like in very thin tarts is the idea of going straight to the point. No fuss allowed in these little gems: just a golden puff pastry supporting a bounty of fresh fruits bursting with flavor – that’s how we like them. At Méert, however, they brings a touch of sophistication to this dessert, with the addition of hazelnut and cinnamon. Will their endeavor fall into excess, or will they show an elegant restraint? This warrants an inspection. Continue reading “Apple and Hazelnut Tart by Méert”
