Fancy trying your hand at creating your very own mustard macaron???
While the cronut and duffin have each had their moment as en vogue desserts, gourmet French mustard brand, La Maison Maille, has created the world’s first mustard macaron with French D&D London restaurant, Coq d’Argent.
Coq d’Argent’s head chef, Damien Rigollet, has experimented with flavour to take a unique twist on macarons. The sweet treat features savoury Maille mustard as a key ingredient and is set to tantalise the tastebuds of the city’s dessert lovers.
The Maille Boutique at Piccadilly will host a one-off mustard masterclass on Tuesday, 13 September with Damien Rigollet, who will talk about the flavours that inspire him, his Maille macaron creation and tips on making the perfect macaron. Guests will be able to try the limited edition French treats and get hands-on experience in macaron decorating and tasting, with a selection to take home at the end.
The partnership is a continuation of Fête de la Gastronomie, which ran from 18 to 31 July, and saw London’s finest restaurants and food producers use Maille products as key ingredients to enhance a variety of sweet and savoury dishes. The festival featured Bruno Loubet’s Grain Store, choux pastry specialist Maître Choux, award-winnning Galvin Bistrot de Luxe and urban cheese maker Wildes Cheese.
Damien Rigollet, said: “At Coq d’Argent, we’re always keen to try new ingredients in our recipes to create the inventive twists on classic dishes. The Maille Honey mustard is not only a delicious addition to our classic macaron, but it’s a completely unique French treat that has never been created before.
The macarons will be on sale from 13 September onwards at Coq d’Argent. They will also be available to purchase from the Maille Boutique at £5.50 for a box of two.
