In the heart of Paris, at 36 Rue Etienne-Marcel, Maison Lenôtre has opened an ephemeral atelier, which can be visited until January 13 and is dedicated to the art of working with dough.
A cozy and contemporary 30-m2 space with a high ceiling, decorated soberly with wood, stainless steel and a majestic crown of ears of wheat suspended from the ceiling. An ideal setting to host a concise and exclusive offer, not available in any of its other boutiques.
The ambassador is the MOF Guy Krenzer, who leads the creation and the different ateliers of the Maison. Here customers can chat with him, as well as taste exclusive creations, which will be divided into five savory variations and five sweet ones to cover different parts of the day, from perfumed financiers (pistachio, lemon-ginger), to a Baba Orange, which they advise it should be sprinkled with orange blossom water, going through creations with nods to Guy’s Alsatian origins like the Dampfnudel, a brioche accompanied by poached pear and Mirliton cream.
From January 2, galettes de Rois will be served, one of them exclusively for the atelier, and will contain caramelized pineapple, vanilla, and flambéed in aged rum.
