High fashion is in the air at the Café de la Paix in Paris. Since 2006, the famous restaurant of the InterContinental Le Grand hotel has honored Paris Fashion Week with a high-end, €18 sweet.
This year, the cafe is offering a coconut and raspberry sweet created by the pastry chef Dominique Costa and designed by former model Inès de la Fressange.
Costa’s rich almond cake is topped by coconut cream and fresh raspberries surrounding a coconut panna cotta center. The dessert is served with a chocolate handbag containing a raspberry sauce.
The pastry chef’s inspiration was a pencil drawing made by Inès de la Fressange. The former model sketched a heart of raspberries surrounded by a creamy mousse. The resulting dessert will be available from September and through the rest of this year.
