The Patisserie world champion has done it again. Pierre Marcolini has carefully curated an indulgent blend of tradition with modern flair, to launch a masterful selection of patisserie and confectionary delights that are just what you need this Christmas.
They’ll be available to enjoy from 4th November – if you need some pointers in where to start your collection exploration, here are our top 5 picks:
The Yule Log – The Foundation of Taste
A staple for all households in the festive season, this succulent dessert cannot be missed. This year, The Yule Log pays a strong homage to the holly leaves. “I wanted it to be audacious in form, whilst remaining very elegant and modern”. Pierre Marcolini describes each of his creations with sincere passion and unparalleled craftsmanship. “Tenderness and generosity are the key themes of this collection of festive patisserie. They symbolise the architecture of taste as I conceive it and love it.” For the 2022 collection, La Maison Pierre Marcolini offers The Yule Log in four recipes – Coffee, Chesnut, Grands Cu Chocolate and Pineapple & Coconut.
The Fir Tree – The King of the Forest
Serving up the ‘wow’ factor, the Fir Tree is presented in its majestic form, composed of homemade dark and milk chocolate with a praliné heart, and decorated with holly leaves and ‘wooden’ praline bells. Tucked away under the tree, just like a present, you can find a Malline of 24 starred gianduja and 36 delicious truffles.
The Unprecedented Four-handed Panettone
The chef’s surprise. This four-handed panettone brings together everything that characterises the wondrous spirit of Pierre Marcolini. “Iginio Massari has been a friend of mine for over thirty years. He followed me from the beginning, with great kindness and support. His knowledge and generosity still inspire me today. I was overjoyed like a child when he spontaneously accepted my idea of this four-hand creation, especially since it was inconceivable for me to make a panettone without the help and hands of this Master”. An excellent end-of-year patisserie, to be eaten in the morning or as a snack.
The 2022 Advent Calendar
Amongst the many products that represent so many delicious gift ideas, the Advent Calendar, eagerly awaited every year, allows you to immerse yourself in this enchanted forest well before the end of the year. Thanks to the 24 chocolate creations presented in a box depicting a warm gathering in an enchanted forest, the countdown to Christmas can already be tasted. Pralinés (including our favourite hazelnut pistachio), Caramels, Grand Crus Chocolates, all preserved in a 100% eco-friendly and locally made box. Made in Belgium, of course!
Macarons, Macarons, Macarons !
Most famous for his macarons, Pierre could not leave them out of this years, Christmas collection. This year Pierre has taken Chestnut, taken from the forest for a limited-edition Christmas flavour. Alongside the champagne flavour, because after all what is Christmas without some fizz!
The 'Enchanted Forest' Christmas collection is available from the Marylebone Boutique and counters in Harrods, Selfridges, and the e-store from 4th November 2022.
