SEVEN MICHELIN STARRED CHEF THOMAS KELLER’S BOUCHON BAKERY, NOW OPEN IN JUMEIRAH, MAKES THE MOST SUBLIME PEP-ME-UP DESSERT — CHOCOLATE BOUCHONS
Seven Michelin starred Chef Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery, now open in Jumeirah, makes the most sublime pep-me-up dessert — Chocolate Bouchons
The Usa-based Bouchon Bakery made its foray into Dubai last in August, with its flagship at The Beach, JBR. Helmed by world-renowned seven Michelin starred Chef Thomas Keller, the uber-chic bakery brings his culinary expertise to this side of the world. The bakery is one of the first few branches open to guests outside of the United States, the other ones being in Kuwait and Qatar.
When we say Bouchon Bakery think artisanal breads and viennoiseries, a wide selection of breakfast nosh, beverages and pastries, Chef Keller’s custom-blended ‘TK by Equator’ coffee, traditional teas and hand-crafted hot chocolate among a smorgasbord of others.
As the name suggests, the eatery specialises in French boulangerie products and offers up quintessential French classics including the Semolina Almond Financier, Rosewater Paris Brest, and the ever-popular French treat, Macarons, in seven different flavours.
However, the confectionary that occupies pride of place is the bakery’s signature Bouchons — rich, petite brownies filled with semi-sweet chocolate morsels. These visually appealing treats are as decadent as they look. Supple and just the right amount of sweet, here’s their recipe for them. So bring out those aprons and mitts and channel the inner baker in you!
