Enjoying the fall season has never been more delightful, thanks to the delicious creations unveiled by Jeremy Del Val, celebrated Executive Pastry Chef and Champion of France in Dessert at Dalloyau. With a masterful touch and an innovative spirit, Chef Del Val introduces Pétale Agrumes and Pirouette, two cakes that embody the essence of fall and the artistry of French pastry.
Pétale Agrumes: A Citrusy Daydream
Biting into Pétale Agrumes is like taking a leisurely stroll through the enchanting Tuileries, with the scent of citrus filling the air and the elegant gardens providing a visual feast. The aesthetic of the cake pays homage to the vibrant citrus fruits and captures the essence of one of Paris’ most prestigious gardens.
This multi-sensory delight features a layer of crunchy granola, a pillowy lemon sponge, and a luscious citrus cream with flavors of Corsican clementine, Sicilian blood orange, Syracuse lemon, and a hint of sudachi. Ile-de-France verbena adds a touch of freshness, while the whipped ganache, infused with Madagascar vanilla and lemon zest, provides a creamy contrast. The finishing touch, a tangy confit of lemon and verbena, ties all the elements together to create a harmonious blend of flavors and textures.
Champerché, one of Dalloyau’s new suppliers, plays a crucial role in this creation. With their commitment to growing fresh herbs on urban farms in Île-de-France, they provide the local verbena that breathes a breath of fresh and soothing air into the cake, perfectly capturing the spirit of the first days of autumn.
Pétale d’agrumes is available at €8,90 a piece
Pirouette: A peanut lover’s dream
If Pétale Agrumes delights with its refined elegance, Pirouette is a testament to indulgence and nostalgia. This cake is a dream come true for lovers of the humble peanut, transforming it into a gourmet experience.
The journey begins with a layer of crunchy Aquitaine peanuts, followed by a peanut dacquoise biscuit and a velvety blond chocolate cream. The whipped blond chocolate ganache adds a luxurious touch, and at the heart of it all is a rich peanut praline, ensuring that every bite is an explosion of flavor.
Dalloyau’s commitment to excellence and supporting local producers shines through in this creation, sourcing the peanuts from a small French producer in Aquitaine. The region’s unique sandy soil gives the peanuts a buttery, hazelnut flavor that elevates the cake to new heights of indulgence and generosity.
Pirouette is available at €8,90 a piece
