Beat the summer heat with a touch of luxury and ‘The Picasso of pastries’
France has arrived in Malaysia in the form of a brand-new Macaron Ice Cream Collection from luxury ice cream maker Häagen-Dazs and world-renowned pastry chef Pierre Hermé. To celebrate this partnership, Häagen-Dazs is also running a free scoop campaign at the Sunway Velocity Mall and Autocity Penang outlets!
“I am very excited to partner with Haagen-Dazs in developing this new range. For the past twenty years, I have been constantly creating and reinterpreting my macaron recipes, which is my favourite creative terrain. Whether it is the texture, the presentation, or the possibilities of expressing the ‘taste’, the macaron offers an ideal territory of expression for creativity,” said Pierre Hermé.
The Macaron Ice Cream Collection is a combination of Pierre Hermé’s handiwork and the iconic ice cream of Häagen-Dazs given form as a summer treat. The collection features three unique flavours that combine the crunchy chewy mini macaron shells which are added to the creamy ice cream. The blend brings the dreamy taste of Häagen-Dazs’ ice cream and the Pierre Hermé macaron’s signature almond flavour to perfect harmony.
The range includes three different flavours of ice cream: Strawberry & Raspberry for a sweet and summery flavour, the personification of French dessert richness that is the Double Chocolate Ganache, and the sweet and zesty Yuzu and Lemon.
Be on the lookout for the special limited-time menu at Häagen-Dazs’ shops, which serve exclusive recipes in collaboration with Pierre Hermé!
Have a sundae-te of your dreams with the Strawberry & Raspberry or the Double Chocolate Ganache parfait. The parfait will be matched delectably with either Raspberry Sorbet or Salted Caramel ice cream, crunchy macaron shells, coulis or sauce, whipped cream and toppings.
