Our Freshest Signature
Although the original recipe was created in the Southern Hemisphere and named after a Russian ballerina the Pavlova by Le Dessert is definitely French. A base made of French meringue, a Chantilly cream made of French milk cream from the Normandie region and a unique Parisian look. Here we are with a 150% French Pavlova.
A Unique Meringue Texture
Meringue is a very unique base in pastry because the cooking of it is extremely difficult and the result can be easily altered by humidity. We made hundreds of test to get to a Meringue that resist the HK weather. Our meringue has this unique texture: crusty outside and soft/chewy inside.
Genuine Chantilly Cream
Chantilly cream is then piped on the meringue base. The invention of Chantilly whipped cream is attributed to the great French chef Vatel who worked in the kitchens of the Château de Chantilly for a party organised by the Duc de Condé, the owner of the castle, and his cousin Louis XIV. Our cream are made with the best quality French cream from Normandie. This cream is recognised by pastry chefs globally as the only one that incorporate enough air to have the most fluffy result. Our cream are flavoured using the best ingredients from around the world whether it's Valrhona chocolate from France, Vanilla from Polynesie or lemon from Italy. The mixing process allows for the air to be incorporated progressively in the cream.
The Final Assembling
Although the original recipe was created in the Southern Hemisphere and named after a Russian ballerina the Pavlova by Le Dessert looks 100% French. Using different piping techniques and nozzles we pipe the cream on the meringue base. We then prepare and place the fruit on top of the Pavlova as well as some additional exclusive preparations to enhance the experience.
An ultra fresh cake that looks like a bouquet of flower. And a unique experience where the cream melts with the meringue and balance its sweetness. All Pavlovas come with a homemade coulis to be accommodated with each and everyone personal taste.
