With a garnish of almond cream and hazelnut interspersed between a lemond confit bed The Epiphany Cake at The Peninsula Paris is a dessert not to be missed

For this first Epiphany cake of The Peninsula Paris, Julien Alvarez plays on the senses of the Epiphany and renews the tradition by creating a cake which brings all the sensations that we can appreciate whilst tasting the puff pastry and brioche like crown.


Chef Patissier Julien Alvarez

In the form of a crown covered by a puff pastry, this subtly reinvented Epiphany cake contains a heart in a puff pastry and brioche to obtain a balance between crunchy and soft. With a garnish of almond cream and hazelnut interspersed between a lemond confit bed, Julien Alvarez manages to associate the fondant and the powerful scent of almond and hazelnut with freshness and acidity of a confit lemon, creating a perfect balance of flavours.


At The Peninsula Paris you feel like walking in a Royal Palace

The Epiphany Cake served up to 8 persons and the price is 39€ per Epiphany cake takeaway and 9€ per slice in The Peninsula Paris restaurants.
