Merci Marcel x A Summer In Paris in one of the most alluring collaboration. A French cafe teaming up with a French Patisserie and the result is a a sweet lineup of “haute” French Patisserie, exactly what it was stated in this special menu.
In case, you know neither cafe. First, Merci Marcel is popular French cafe with 2 outlets. The first Merci Marcel is in Tiong Bahru and subsequently, the second Merci Marcel is at Club Street. As for A Summer in Paris, this French Patisserie is helmed by Pastry Chef Yann Brys who was awarded the prestige “Meilleur Ouvrier de France”. This award is one of the highest accolade one could achieve in the French culinary scene.
Since I have a sweet tooth and since I have not tried any of the Patisserie from this renown Pastry Chef at A Summer in Paris Singapore or Hotel Brach Paris, I don’t want to miss this opportunity.
Merci Marcel x A Summer In Paris
In this menu, there were a total of 4 Haute French Patisseries.
A creation using tropical fruits; coconut & lemon moelleux, exotic mousse with a centre mango and passionfruit coulis. Overall was well balance with fruity hint and I could savour the various elements among the complex layer of ingredients. This was my favourite among the 4.
Folie Douce ($13)
The most sour among the 4. Consist of jasmine moelleux and raspberry compote on a thin shortbread. Populated with mainly raspberry aroma.
Merci Marcel ($13.50)
For the chocolate fan, this was not to be missed. Bittersweet Guanaja chocolate mousse with caramel creme and chocolate genoise. Despite having caramel as a component in this pastry, it wasn’t overly saccharine.
Chef Yann Brys is well known for its Swirl Cake technique hence the Tourbillon surely has to be on the menu. Lemon curd filled the crumbly biscuit tart, completed the look with swirl of yuzu light meringue. If you prefer sweetish lemon tart, this is created specially for you.
On the Menu of Merci Marcel x A Summer In Paris, there is something for everyone, depending on your preference. Whether you are a chocolate or fruity; sweet or sourish, you will find your favourite item.
