Tea with Proust
This chocolate creation has the spout of a teapot, a little madeleine crest and a handle to hold.
It is a fiction-based reality, a product of pure memory. For Easter, François Perret delved into the hotel’s Proustian heritage and reinterpreted it in chocolate.
His rendition is full of surprises because this little teapot, in a cheerful play on the traditional hen and egg, contains a secret trove of miniature chocolate-dipped madeleines with a praline hazelnut heart. One taste brings back the sensation of “lost time”, in the spirit of Marcel Proust’s remembrances of a happy childhood.
