Philippe Conticini re-imagines the perfect millefeuille for summer

Working with the legendary Parisian ice cream shop RaimoLa Pâtisserie des Rêves proposes an ice cream version of one of his emblematic products, the millefeuille.

But in this ice cream version is not just substituting the vanilla cream for vanilla ice cream; the great Philippe Conticini has thought about a new “parfums” collection within the millefeuille: dark chocolate, raspberry, Alphonso mango, hazelnut, and vanilla. It is a way of rediscovering a refreshing form of this elaboration in Raimo for spring and summer.

Meant to be eaten with family (a six-person millefeuille), the ice cream millefeuille will be available at La Pâtisserie des Rêves from May 14.
