*Fabulous soirée alert for Fauchon Attraction - their newest collection of divine goodies available starting today through 10 september.
It was last night and I'm still recovering.
Framboise/raspberry pink everywhere.
Darling mini versions of a 'Charlotte Tourbillon'
I'm thinking...now who is Charlotte Tourbillon? Latest winner at Roland Garros? No way! A new twist (ha!) on a charlotte russe gateau usually surrounded with vertical lady fingers - un mélange de fruits rouges (fraises, framboises, mures et groseilles) topped with crème Chantilly and a marshmallow bonbon. This is the giant version. By the way a 'tourbillon' is a kind of twisty spring inside a watch according to Wikie...
This is the clown's nose! A chocolate shell enrobed in magenta glase sitting on a pistachio financier base. All fun and games at Fauchon last night.
Beautiful towers of raspberry-red fruits and pistachio macarons.
Lots of lollypopism! Mini eclairs on sticks - they come as a pair. Granny Smith candy apple and pistachio.
More food on sticks - glazed tomatoes filled with Atlantic crab, ginger and a touch of avocado puree. Perfection.
Foie gras lollies
Even more stick action. Grab a fishing rod and try to catch a canard or bath duckie.
And these bduckies move fast! You had to 'catch' THREE duckies to win a lollypop. I was ready to tear my hair out and even attempted to give the hook a helping hand but got caught red-handed. Still I did catch 3 ducks though I thought it would take all night.
The prize lollies or Attraction Sucettes - a twist or tourbillon of color and flavors acidule - fraise, framboise, cerise, mure, cassis, Pomme = yum.
What to wear to a Fauchon Attraction collection soiree? These hot pink shoes of course from Le Bon Marche!
One does wonder what the original Fauchons would think of all this circus shenanigans at their epicerie. Don't miss out!
