Hugo & Victor’s Religieuse Fleur is a spring time delight for visitors to their store in Printemps Haussmann.

Flavour
With first class service from the helpful lady behind the counter I decided on the modern interpretation of the classic *religieuse, filled with lemongrass cream légère, a hibiscus tea cream légère The flavour combination from Hugues Pouget is inspired a real clean fresh spring taste is what hits the palate then the crisp choux pastry.

Visual
Decorated with real flowers including bergonia, nasturtiums, orchids and crystallised violets. The visual impact of the flowers and red glaze captures the eye and was one of the determining factors in choosing this pastry from amongst many.

Eatabilty

A real standout pastry…
