Dominique Ansel Adds Coco-Mango Riz Au Lait and Lime Me Up Tart to Spring Menu


Dominique Ansel is brightening up his Spring menu with the addition of two new fruity desserts.

Mouthwatering as they are visually stunning, the new desserts are a refreshing change from Ansel’s usual sweet creations. The Coco-Mango Riz Au Lait features thin slices of ripe mango arranged almost in a flower design filled with bright mango pearls and coconut rice pudding with mango marmalade.

The new Lime Me Up Tart showcases Ansel’s sweet side while still maintaining a bit of tartness. The dessert features a tart shell that looks more like an eclair, filled with a juniper lime curd topped with a soft lime mousse. The tart is served with a lime wedge on the side along with an edible white chocolate spoon-esque tool filled with brown sugar and sea salt for customers to season their dessert to their individual taste. Pretty fancy.

The new fruit based desserts join seven new pastries on Dominique Ansel’s new Spring menu. The sweet genius is sure to think up some new innovative concoction soon so get to his bakery while these desserts are still around.
