Giuseppe Vitrani, Pastry Chef at Monte-Carlo Beach proposes a creative dessert in the shape of a turtle, symbol of environmental protection. A green cake obtained in a natural way from the ingredients used composes this dessert. The recipe is based on citrus fruits with a lemon cake and a Matcha tea mousse around it.
Rimel Slimani and David Sturiale from Pôle sucré proposed this creation entitled "Health'sea". In a world in constant evolution, pastry is following the movement with passion. Culinary choices, without eggs, cream or other animal presence that inspire and reflect a fairer, cleaner and greener world. This dessert is topped with a creamy Sicilian pistachio, covered with a creamy white chocolate mousse, flavoured with Tahitian vanilla on a pistachio sesame crunch.
Loïc Maurel, Jonathan Barbagallo, Cyril Natta & Valentin Dupré at the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo have chosen the sea turtle as a sign of their commitment to the preservation of marine spaces. The Easter dessert consists of a compote of Menton lemon, a light bavaroise infused with cocoa nibs on a Sacher biscuit.
Nicolas Baygourry, Head Pastry Chef at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo and his brigade have come up with an Easter dessert inspired by underwater life. Visually surprising, adorned with its white chocolate coral, it will surprise you just as much on the gustatory level with the daring and unconventional association of matcha green tea with an iodised raspberry confit with candied wakame seaweed!
In 2008, the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo opened its doors to Mathieu Louis. Today he is head pastry chef of the restaurant Le Grill. He presented to the panel a dessert based on an animal he loves: the Seahorse. A creamy Sicilian pistachio, covered with a creamy white chocolate mousse on a pistachio sesame crunch.
