The Yauatcha X Manish Malhotra haute dessert lineup has everything from festive macarons to gluten-free petit gateaux
Everything is set to get a lot more dramatic this festive season, including our desserts; one look at the Yauatcha X Manish Malhotra collaboration will make you see our point. The designer and the contemporary tea house have come together to a limited-edition range of Haute desserts.
Drawing inspiration from Malhotra's Festive Couture collection, Maahrumysha, the macarons and petit gâteaux will reflect the fine craftsmanship and intricate detailing that it embodies. This creative partnership brings together Yauatcha’s delicate French inspired patisserie with Malhotra’s tribute to the old-world regalia marrying the millennial aesthetic, which he has so deftly captured in his new collection.
In keeping with India’s rich culinary culture, the patisserie team at Yauatcha have showcased celebratory, ingredients like rose, coconut, pistachio and more. These desserts will be put together in custom designed patisserie boxes designed by Malhotra that pay homage to one of his signature design elements – an embroidered gold motif.
The dessert collection will feature four petit gateaux and four macarons, all of which have taken inspiration from the Maahrumysha collection, which has a focus on retro deailing and antique hand embroidery. The Royal rose grand macaron, for instance, is an oversized sized macaron that is delicately flavoured with rose, filled with white chocolate cream and rose in the center, finally finished with a bow shaped white chocolate ruffle and a delicate rose petal for a festive touch.
The divine Velvet milk chocolate praline using milk chocolate and hazelnut mixed with salted caramel sauce, is a mousse-based dessert that is finished with a golden leaf on top while the Golden nougat, a chocolate brownie like petit gateau, with an explosion of molten chocolate at the center, has an ivory velvety texture topped with golden dusted cookie crumble, to add the right amount of festive feel.
Lastly, the Golden leaf, a gluten free dessert,is a delicious flourless spin on the classic chocolate sponge cake made with French style meringue and cocoa. The festive macarons include flavours like Coconut with golden dust, Pistachio, Violet with blueberry meringue and a signature favourite Hazelnut. All macarons come with gold dusted feuilletine flakes for a festive finish.
The Yauatcha x Manish Malhotra limited edition Haute desserts will be available at all Yauatcha outlets in Kolkata, Mumbai and Bengaluru.
