Feted French pastry chef Yann Brys collaborates with Singapore patisserie
A Summer In Paris serves up 'haute' French sweets at Vivocity – some with a local twist.
What are you looking forward to in 2019? Perhaps a summer in Paris? Well, it's not quite the vacation you were hoping for but there is a pastry shop named A Summer In Paris at Vivocity.
Calling itself Singapore’s first French haute patisserie, A Summer in Paris is collaborating with feted pastry chef Yann Brys on a number of sweet creations.
Brys is credited for creating the now-widely used technique of piping cream on a turntable, and was awarded the Meilleur Ouvrier de France – the Oscars of the French pastry world, if you will – in 2011.
His trademark whirl encircles the Tourbillon Frui’the, a soft almond sponge teacake topped with grapefruit marmalade, jasmine tea mousse and lychee cremeux.
Brys also puts a local spin to his signature Pearl Ananas et Passion (pearl pineapple passion) creation with Pom Pom, a hyper-realistic Granny Smith apple teacake made from green apple cream.
Other creations include the tangy Choco Dough, a lip smacking dessert made from milk chocolate and milk jam with a hint of citrus.
A Summer In Paris is located at #01-13 Vivocity.
