Dessert Blitz: Mont Blanc

In one month’s time, I will be back in New York. I, of course, have mixed feelings about this. But one thing is for sure: I have a lot of sweets to get through. Today…

The famous Mont Blanc from Angelina.

Just like a snow-capped (spaghetti) mountain, the famous Mont Blanc—first created by the founder of Angelina salon de thé—boasts a Chantilly center, enclosed in meringue, and topped with strings of vanilla-flavored chestnut cream pastry. Step right up!

Tell me if there’s anything you want to sample vicariously through me… it would be a honor. And my pleasure.

I'm late in checking out your Dessert Blitz, but I'll be back daily. I would absolutely LOVE for you to sample a chocolate buche de noel, especially one from Pierre Herme (but I don't think he makes an individual one, does he?) In any case, I love the Dessert Blitz, makes me miss being in Paris. Thanks for sharing!

That does look very decadent. I've never seen a Mont Blonc shaped in this way.

Have a wonderful trip to New York! Looking forward to seeing the sweets you encounter. Maybe a doughnut? I can't really think of many American sweets, oh dear!

Ah, sweet memories. I was lucky enough to sample Angelina's very delightful Mont Blanc six months ago. It was magnificent. I wasn't sure that I would like the chestnut part, as I'm not very familiar with chestnut- it's available here in Australia, but not all that common- but I was totally won over.
