In an interview with Julien de Préaumont, Co-founder & CEO, we discussed how bakery market is booming in Asia and pastry is a major contributor to this growth. He said: “Although everyone is obsessed with healthy living, Asian people cherish those times of celebration when they can indulge themselves with friends and family. This is the exact meaning of Le Dessert in French. It is the last part of the meal where you just enjoy the present moment”.
He also explained how Le Dessert is a French brand born in Hong Kong. They use French ingredients like cream from the Normandie region and that allows them to claim the French pastry heritage. He continued: “Our signature Pavlova is a good illustration. The original recipe is actually from Australia, but meringue and Chantilly cream are from the French pastry tradition. When we designed it we gave it a very Parisian look. Same for our jar desserts, we designed them to fit in Hong Kong people’s very active lifestyle”.
