Quick! Before maple season is over…
…get yourself to Montréal.
And straight to the doors of Maison Boulud where maple comes in multiple forms. This is Maple Crémeux. Think maple cotton candy, spun to order. Maple crème fraîche, white chocolate-maple ganache, and even maple ice cream.
While you’re there, dive into other desserts, like this Limoncello and Hazelnut creation and that wonderful Roasted Pineapple and Lilikoi pictured at top. It’s served with a giant calisson!
I met with Pastry Chef David Jubin to chat about his newest desserts. See my post for Serious Eats. All his sweets are wonderful and bright, often edging on whimsical.
Of course, there is always room for Chocolate Coulant. But instead of oozing liquid chocolate, this one surprises with silky salted butter caramel. Oh my!
Comes with caramelized milk ice cream too ;)
