THIERRY DUMOUCHEL… a French pastry chef in United Kingdom!

08/21/2018 - Childhood memories are important in shaping our identity… Thierry DUMOUCHEL still remember about apple pie and mille feuilles prepared by her aunt… in Normandy! The memory for good things in live, the taste awakening, the terroir, also the sense of sharing, are undoubtedly the ultimate basis of its career choice. After obtaining an NVQ in pastry and an NVQ in bakery from INBP in Rouen, Thierry DUMOUCHEL had the opportunity to work in prestigious houses such as Lucien PELTIER and FAUCHON. Furthermore, he moved to Japan for 3 years where he worked for PATISSERIE FRANCAIS LECOMTE, then LE CORDON BLEU. He also lived in Lebanon. These two destinations aren’t out of the ordinary. Why Thierry DUMOUCHEL lives in United Kingdom? Because he wanted to learn English to indulge his passion for travel. Then, struck by freedom of expression in this country (non-conventional !) and people very sympathetic, he stayed there. He was elected Best Bakery in this country in 2010. RÉMY COINTREAU ambassador for a very long time, Thierry explains that the use of COINTREAU or RÉMY MARTIN in its desserts produces a real statement, an authenticity, more sharper tastes, a sweetness. It’s a secret: he working on a new recipe for September, a creation inspired by the softness of Normandy. http://www.dumouchel.co.uk/

COINTREAU® ORANGE: creation by Chinese Pastry Chef, Laurent LUO

08/01/2018 - Presentation of Laurent LUO: I began doing Pastry since I was a kid, because my mum is a Pastry Chef and my father is a Bakery Chef. I often went to help them in their store. After that I went to Changsha for my first job and then I went to Shanghai because Shanghai was for me the reference in term of french Pastry and I worked in a shop called Fascino. In 2018, I decided with one friend to open our own shop in Xiamen (in the province of Fujian) called ‘Douce France’. We are going to open our second shop in September. « COINTREAU ORANGE » is a seasonal recipe that I created during the oranges period. I also imagined this dessert because there is a trend about dessert in the fruit shape in France and the Chineses are looking for this kind of desserts. So, I should like to surprise them also by bringing this subtle and fresh taste associated with COINTREAU. This dessert became the signature recipe of the shop. This recipe needs some technical skills and a meticulous work in order to have the sensation of a real orange. The first layer is made with chocolate and its interior consists of an orange and white chocolate mousse. The heart of the dessert is made with fresh orange and orange biscuit, all perfumed with COINTREAU. Since the beginning, I had a preference for COINTREAU for my desserts. I really appreciate its orange taste and its fresh perfume which perfectly match my desserts. When I use COINTREAU, I don’t need to put a lot of product and it won’t change the texture of my pastries. On the contrary, the taste will be much better. I like to use COINTREAU in chocolate desserts and I use it to perfume mousse, fruits… Douce France shop : Fujian province, Xiamen , district Siming, Guanreng road 2-8
