The most appropriate desert you can have after a generous meal is a soury and flavoury “tarte au citron“. The lemon transforms the classical desert into a fresh experience, due to the sharp taste of the citruses (citrus fruits).
Let aside their well-known antiviral, antibacterial and immunostimulatory properties, the lemons in this tart will also fill you up on vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, pectins and bioflavonoids –meaning: it will strengthen your immune system, helping you fight back possible infections.
KOUGLOF Cake12.00 lei / 144.00 lei
Served during the sumptuous medieval feasts held at the Alsacian châteaus, the Kouglof Cake is truly a fairy tale desert! The Chez Odette version of this cake lies in a dense pumpkin and almond flakes composition, using lemon and orange nectar/ syrup for the base and finish everything off with a white chocolate, berries/forest fruits and pistachio frosting, while still keeping its romantic shape and basic ingredients.
Have a slice for a royal indulgence!
Red Velvet Cake (Le gâteau de velours rouge)195.00 lei
I took the traditional ‘Red Velvet Cake’ and made it my own, by using red beet as a main ingredient and also a natural alternative for food coloring.
The cake was then mantled in a vanilla flavored mascarpone cream and adorned with goodies from the garden: strawberries and fresh mint.
During those hot months of the year, when the variety of fresh fruit simply spoils us, ‘velour rouge’ works best as a light, nutritious and sweeeet desert!
This french version of the cake is called ‘Velour Rouge’–Chez Odette style!
Fruit tart15.00 lei
I made the “daylight” version of the dark chocolate tart using fizzy vanilla cream and blends/mixes of fresh seasonal fruits. The soury taste of the fruits acts as a catalyst for the vanilla cream. Their fibers enlongue the feeling of satiety, helping you lose weight. The minerals and vitamins comprised in this desert, make it a health and energy booster!
