For the reopening, on January 7th 2022, of its upstairs space (67 seats in addition to the 10 on the ground floor), Café Kitsuné Louvre is launching a new concept dedicated to everyone who loves fine patisseries, in collaboration with promising young talents and recognised names. Each month, new creations by a guest patisserie chef in residence will enrich the menu of Café Kitsuné.
The creations from chefs will follow on Café Kitsuné’s Louvre menu.
We couldn’t be happier to welcome our new guest patisserie chef, Hugues Pouget
Founder of Hugo & Victor, @huguespouget pays tribute to the poet with whom he shared a taste for refinement, art and commitment. According to him, “pastry has to be made with high quality sourcing seasonal fruits , no added flavoring or artificial colors”.
Join us to discover his creations, full of surprising and elegant flavors, both light and greedy:
His exclusive pastry for #CafeKitsune:
– The ‘Easter Egg’: a Manjari dark chocolate mousse infused with vanilla and tonka beans, hazelnut praline flowing heart and crunchy cocoa crumble. Dark chocolate and fresh roasted hazelnuts glaze.
His signature pastries:
– The ‘Yuzu Cheesecake’: a Yuzu shortbread, Pain de Genes biscuit, cream cheese mousse prepared with lemon zest and juice, creamy and candied yuzu, crunchy meringue and candied lemon.
– The ‘Praline Succès’: a soft dacquoise, hazelnuts, flaked almonds and hazelnut praline mousseline.
