Around the world with two ambassadors of French art de vivre...
Take-off is imminent with Guy Krenzer, Creative Director at Maison Lenôtre and his team of chefs…First stop is Jakarta with a caramelized pastry enclosing a Baba cake drenched in Grand Marnier and orange syrup with Cubeb pepper. Next stop Indonesia with an orange compote served with macerated orange slices. This gourmet expedition is not complete without a taste of Lima in a creamy Alto el sol Peruvian dark chocolate ganache sauce.
These creative culinary experts have traced the circular design of a jet engine on the galette des rois in a quirky take on air travel.
This delicacy will surely delight all lovers of gourmet delicacies and also well-informed collectors! Concealed in the Lenôtre galettes, 6 limited edition charms retrace the airline’s history through its legendary models, from the Caravelle to the A380, and other emblems such as its famous advertising posters or the winged seahorse, Air France’s historic logo.
The charm collection is also available as a collector’s edition, exclusively featuring the special Air France’s 80th anniversary charm.
