Mille Patisserie have launched a festive special; Plantation Rum & Imbert Chestnut Mille Crêpe decorated with Japanese Yuzu Candy and Fresh Mint.
Every ingredient in this seasonal treat has been hand-selected for being the very best in it’s quality and flavour. The crêpes are made with fresh organic eggs, British whole milk and Shipton Mill organic wheat flour. The crème pâtissière that layers each of the 22 crêpes is made from Elle & Vire French whipping cream. Additionally this festive special is flavoured with Imbert Chestnuts from Ardèche, artisanal Caribbean Plantation Rum, imported Japanese yuzu and fresh mint.
The key ingredient in this celebratory treat is French chestnuts sourced from traditional family-run company Imbert, founded in 1920, celebrated for using only the best fruit for a superior flavour and perfume. Imbert refuse to use ready peeled or frozen chestnuts which means that production can only be carried out between the chestnut season of October and March.

Mina Holland : The Guardian
“Mille patisserie brings you city’s best in high pancake design”
“The hype is real. These Mille crepe cakes were so perfect in every way.”
“Oh my gosh I think I’m in love with mille crepes again. Patisserie Mille’s matcha crepe cake was so soft, super-rich in matcha flavour and the cream wasn’t overwhipped at all (a common mistake I’ve found in some places that try to make it too sturdy).”
“Would highly recommend pre-booking or calling as they sell out very quickly.”
“The best Mille cake in London!!”
“8/9 flavours a day and I can now vouch for all of them”
“It’s not only a blessing on our taste buds, but an absolute feast for the eyes”
