Fauchon´s Edible Art
Parisian patisserie Fauchon takes haute cuisine to a new level by effortlessly blending art and food creating desserts for ones viewing delight. From this hyper-luxe foodie haven, comes these gorgeous éclairs coated with, not your typical glazed-over chocolate, but the Mona Lisa. Once you get past her infamous glaze, take a bite: these chocolate and almond cream éclairs are rich, creamy, and indulgent, satisfying like a French pastry should. If that doesn’t make you smile, check out any of the wide-range of Fauchon desserts, which are stylish objects of art in their own right.
The patisserie showcases innovative desserts of all colours and shapes, embellished with metallic gold, white and cocoa buttons, and leopard print éclairs. It was obvious that their food was moving into new territories when design bible Wallpaper crowned these éclairs Best Pastry in their 2009 Design Awards.
