Forget wine sommeliers; this summer Maison Blanc is introducing the concept of a ‘sommelier’ who pairs iced drinks with sweet indulgent patisserie.
With the warmer weather arriving, Britons are developing quite a thirst for iced drinks and French patisserie, Maison Blanc, are confident that their new summer flavours will quench this nationwide desire. However, in true Maison Blanc style, these iced drinks do not simply have to be served alone but instead can arrive on your table with a carefully matched cake or tart that will complement the flavour of your iced drink perfectly.
Maison Blanc pride themselves on the daily fresh handmade patisserie served in their cafes and the smoothies and frappe are set to enhance, balance or contrast with the flavours of some of their customers’ favourite items of patisserie.
The slight acidity of the berries in the Raspberry and Pomegranate Smoothie make the perfect accompaniment for the rich chocolate sponge and deep dark chocolate mousse that is in the Larieux.
A truly summery combination, the Pineapple and Mango Smoothie makes a fiesta of fresh summer flavours when combined with the rhubarb and rosewater compote that sits beneath the lemon and hibiscus cream topping in the Lemon Hibiscus Tart.
For the sweet-toothed among us, the creamy coffee based Vanilla Frappe is the perfect partner for the Ispahan Macaron with rose fragrant cream and fresh raspberries.
