We are delighted to announce that Chef Dominique Ansel has created a new summertime dessert, the Pop Fleur. The refreshing treat has been designed so visitors to his London bakery can become a Pastry Chef with just a push of the hand.
The Pop Fleur was inspired by pastry piping tips that Chef Dominique uses in his kitchens and he created a special piping tip of his own for the top of the Pop Fleur that allows guests to mimic his own piping methods. Simply push up the yogurt, and watch it grow into a beautiful flowering rose.
The refreshing Pop Fleur is a light and airy whipped yogurt flavoured with rare Wakamomo peaches. Chef Dominique first discovered this unusual ingredient in Japan when they were served as a garnish on a sushi platter. These tiny, fragrant mountain fruit look similar to small green olives but are sweet, fragrant and floral, tasting like a combination of muscat grape, peach, and plum.
The Pop Fleur is priced £4.50 and available in-store and also available for online preorder for collection in the shop.
