Oh beautiful millefeuille

I had the pleasure of lunching at the La Cuisine the other day. It’s the fabulous restaurant inside the glamorous Royal Monceau. It’s also where Pierre Hermé, (whom I spied while leaving!) created the dessert menu—including a little “spin-the-wheel” carte that lets you create your own millefeuille.

From the luscious ingredients including caramel and lemon choux crème, flecks of dark chocolate and plump berries, I went with one of my favorite combinations...

Pistachio and raspberry.

Beautiful.

and how good would that be ? :)
