A Chic Modern Transformation of the Traditional Favourite Inspired by Local Delicacies and Flavours.
A French Affair with a Local Twist...
As our love affair with the éclair continues, we have given this French favourite a modern twist inspired by our island destination in the Mediterranean Sea.
Transforming the traditional éclair, we have created the CHOCOLATE AND TAHINI ÉCLAIR.
Chiboust cream is replaced with Tahini (known locally as ‘Helwa tat-Tork’) and sugar, sesame paste and vanilla are added to sweeten the taste producing a flavour both recognisable and yet with a discernible hint of this beautiful locality.
...Where History and Food Combine.
Orange trees are plentiful in Malta with Lumi Laring, sweet orange, and Blood Orange the most sought-after varieties. Honey is also in abundance so much so that during Greek rule, the island was referred to as Melite (Μελίτη).
Gozitan honey and Lumi Laring oranges are combined with local ricotta cheese to create a delightful taste that truly encapsulates the enticing and exciting flavours of Malta with our Orange and Cinnamon Infused Ricotta Éclair.
