Carollanne discovers the Molès pastry shop
At the Molès pastry shop, we are making magic !
As I was walking around the Lamastre market, I was attracted by the Christmas window of the Molès pastry shop! I had a nice meeting....
As I decide to enter the pastry shop, I am greeted by Laurence Molès in person! She tells me: "Edwige and I have been forming a fine team since 8 years to transform chocolate (Valrhona exclusively) into (exquisite) chocolate candies, (crunchy) bars or (gourmet) pastries": nothing like it to delight our palates! And not only....
In this charming little shop, I discover artistic pieces, assemblies or even centerpieces made entirely of chocolate! A delight for both eyes and taste buds!
My amazed eyes betray me and Laurence allows me a little trip to the lab where chocolate coating is in progress! A real goldsmith work !
For the end of the year celebrations, it is always time to order your Chocoline pastry (vanilla-chocolate), your Aveline ice cream pastry (with 3 citrus fruits), your chocolate desserts or to plan a delicious gift for the loved ones you really want to treat!
Stollen with marzipan, candied fruit and icing sugar; traditional cake in Lorraine, a reference to the chef's origins!
Cherries in brandy*, pitted but with their tails!
Macaroons with almonds and other varied flavours.
*Alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health. To be consumed in moderation.
