As the amicable Gontran is shouting out Gong xi Gong xi to us, he was at the same time inspired to create 3 exciting CNY items that evidently have some French elements blended into them. As this year’s CNY comes much later than previous years, it has also overlapped with Valentine’s day, for which Gontran has created a delectable macaroon Burger.
This massive Pineapple and Coconut Tart is the most spectacular item amongst all as it is reminiscent of a blown-up pineapple tart yet still packed with many intriguing elements. Resting on top of the crisp sugar-dough base is a light silky pineapple infused Mousse with a white chocolate disc on it. What makes it complete is the fragrant fresh coconut Chantilly cream that lifts the overall taste of the tart! $8.50.
The moist Orange and Chocolate Marble cake could be purchased as a whole for just $18 or $4.50 per slice. While it exudes a buttery fragrance, the slightly bitter dark French chocolate and citrusy tang from the orange help to lift the overall taste! I could imagine this being wiped out from the table if it is served to your guests during CNY!
And we went nutty over this alluring piece of huge crispy Chocolate and Hazelnut Kouign Amann. Just imagine rich Nutella being poured into the Kouign Amann and finally topped with crushed Hazelnut; sounds irresistible doesn’t it! $4.50.
That’s the huge surprise creation for Valentine’s. This Nougat and Strawberry Macaroon is so huge that I ate it like a burger! The pink heart shaped macaroon shell has my favourite chewy consistency in it while sitting between them is a substantial slab of fragrant nougat cream that has almond blended into it and freshly chopped strawberries. $8.50.
Indeed, these CNY and Valentine’s goodies are all spot on (as with all his previous creations). So if you don’t want to miss out, come on in to enjoy these lovely creations by Gontran for this festive season! And if you would like to offer a more refreshing and different CNY goodies to your relatives and friends, I reckon that Tiong Bahru bakery has the answer for that. The CNY goodies will be on sale from 2nd Feb to 3rd March while the Valentine treat could only be bought from 9th to 15th Feb!
Thanks to Janet for the kind invitation!
