Brewing a delicious holiday season, Nespresso introduced its Paris-inspired Limited Edition Holiday Collection by giving its guests a full Parisian experience, Nespresso style, thru a pop-up LE Festive Gourmandise CafÃ© at the Powerplant Mall.
The crowd delighted in the beautiful display of coffee machines, while freshly brewed aromatic cups of coffee from Nespressoâ€™s new flavors, Praline, Macaron, and Paris Black, intensified their cravings.
To make sure everyone had an authentic taste of Paris, celebrity chef Sunshine Puey whipped up delectable desserts that went perfectly with each of the new Nespresso holiday variants.
Known for her pastries, particularly the French kind, Puey developed posh pairings that looked and tasted like they came straight out of haute couture pÃ¢tisserie in Paris.
Her Choux Au Citron (Lemon Cream Puff), a classic French choux pastry filled with Lemon pastry cream, complemented the taste and aroma of Nespressoâ€™s Praline variant, a flavored espresso that pairs the roundness of Livantoâ€™s base with a delicate roasted hazelnut flavor, enhanced by a touch of caramel sweetness.
Her Macaron Caramel BuerreSalÃ© Avec Praline (Salted Caramel Macaron with Praline), on the other hand, enhanced the flavors of Nespresso Macaron, a harmonious combination of Livantoâ€™s cereal notes and a subtle and sweet almond flavor, emblematic of the macaron pastry.
For those who liked to keep their coffee classic and brewed, Nespresso Paris Black, a very aromatic blend of Arabicas and emboldened by Robusta that displays notes of cereal and nuts in a syrupy texture, combined with spicy and woody tones, was the best choice, Puey paired it with Financier Ã¡ la Framboise (Raspberry Financier), a rich almond brown butter cake with raspberries.
“These pastries were especially created to pair with your cafe au lait or espresso. They are meant to be enjoyed leisurely and to bring a smile to your face,” said the Chef. “Have a sip, take a bite, relax, and enjoy. And while youâ€™re at it, why not imagine yourself in the banks of the Seine river overlooking Paris at dusk, in all its glory?”
Nespressoâ€™s Festive Limited Edition coffees paired with Chef Sunshine Pueyâ€™s pastries sure offered a delicious Parisian experience like no other.
