Tell us about your partnership
CM : Jérôme has all the values that I try to transcend everyday. When you win a competition, you still always dream of winning another. I saw myself in him and I saw his potential. I was proud when he won! We are made from the same mould, we have the same strength and desire to excel. We are fighters.
JDO : Christophe is exemplary, very dynamic. He has a thousand ideas a second but knows when to question himself. He triggered the desire in me to go even further and always do something different. And he is the only one to talk about patisserie in this way. It has been a real pleasure to work with him over the last five years because he instils such incredible energy.
A few words about this recipe for four hands
CM JDO : We both love strawberries, a fantastic seasonal product, and cream, which is essential for patisserie! Nothing would be possible without cream! Quite simply, the recipe evokes memories of Eton Mess, vacherin and merveilleux: the harmony between the meringue and the Chantilly cream. Crisp, melt-in-themouth and soft, that’s real patisserie! The fruit-Chantilly cream meringue mixture is placed in a chocolate shell. The recipe can be adapted to the season: milkchocolate with passion fruit and mango in winter, figs in September, etc.

La vie en rose

Eton mess, merveilleux, vacherin... the combination of meringue and Chantilly cream is a fabulous patisserie classic.
We had the idea of adding the Grasse rose, the region Jérôme lives in to add a floral note to the recipe. The rose-fruit-Chantilly cream-meringue mixture is placed in a chocolate shell: Original, adaptable, gourmet and on top of that, it can be made in an infinite number of ways, so French Touch!
