Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16 is taking French sweets to the next level: kickstart this December with a series of newly crafted creations of some of the most well-known–and popular–French pastries. The hotel’s gastronomic team has come up with whole new cannelés and éclairs of different flavors!
To live the French way is to delight in the finest things in life. Sofitel Macau proudly presents two time-honored French desserts with a modern twist. Based on traditional recipes and using only the finest ingredients, these iconic sweet pastries are pleasures to the eyes and the palate.
Originated from the Bordeaux region, cannelé is a small pastry that consists of a soft, custard-like interior and a dark, thick caramelized crust. To honor the traditional French artisan baking techniques, Sofitel Macau uses an authentic copper mould to create a caramelized, crispy crust while maintaining a soft and tender filling. Offered in three flavors–classic, orange and Earl Grey, Sofitel’s cannelés are a culinary indulgence created with both heart and soul.
Éclair, which means “lightning” in French, is a decadent dessert to be eaten as quick as a flash of lightning. Inspired by traditional French baking recipes, Sofitel Macau modernizes the popular éclair with three contemporary flavors: lime, berry vanilla, and chocolate. The new flavors are presented with stunningly artistic styling, making them a perfect afternoon treat while paired with a hot coffee. As part of Sofitel Macau’s VIP amenities, the re-invented cannelé and éclair will also be served at the buffet, club lounge, turndown service, afternoon tea and MICE events.
