Angelina Paris

Comments 3 Standard

Today we had the BEST dessert.  It is our last day in Paris, and the grand finale was dessert at Angelina, Paris’ most famous tea room, dating back to 1903 – a favorite of Coco Chanel’s.

It is known the world over for its hot chocolate, which is like a velvety hot pudding.  Also its many dazzling pastries.

But we were here for their signature pastry – the Mont Blanc.

The menu describes it as:

Mont-Blanc is Angelina’s signature pastry.

The recipe was created at the beginning of the 20th century by Angelina pastry chefs and has remained unchanged since.

Crispy and dry French meringue under a smooth creamy dome of light whipped cream, covered by chestnut vermicelli. 

Its shape was apparently inspired by the trending women’s hairstyle at the time: the sleek short square bob.

This dessert reportedly was Coco Chanel’s favorite – and now ours, too!

Au revoir Paris.  We have had an amazing month.  A bientot.
