Mister Donut Creates Luxurious Doughnuts With Pierre Hermé
Mister Donut Japan collaborated with French pastry chef and chocolatier Pierre Hermé to create a series of six luxurious doughnuts. This dessert might be the perfect treat for Valentine's Day.
Mister Donut starts 2020 off with a special collaboration with French pastry chef and chocolatier Pierre Hermé. The collection is inspired by some of Pierre Hermé's most popular sweets.
It includes six luxury doughnuts, many of them featuring chocolate befitting the upcoming Valentine's Day.
First up, Mister Donut's signature pon de ring gets a Hermé makeover. The Pon de Ispahan (160 yen plus tax) is inspired by Ispahan, a pink pastry made with rose, raspberry, and lychee.
It is topped with raspberry icing and sprinkles and filled with lychee and rose cream.
The Satine Fashion (170 yen plus tax) is an old fashion doughnut inspired by the Hermé cheesecake. It is topped with cheesecake cream and orange and passionfruit jam.
If you cannot get enough chocolate, try the Carrément Chocolat (Chocolat Noir) for 220 plus tax. Ganache whipped cream, ganache cream, and candied almonds are sandwiched inside a fluffy chocolate doughnut.
Lastly, there are three richly filled cruller chocolate doughnuts based on a variety of Hermé desserts. Cruller are small cakes which are twisted or curled and deep-fried. Each of these cruller is 230 yen plus tax.
The chocolate, orange and passionfruit cruller is called Mogador. It is filled with chocolate whipped cream, chocolate ganache and orange and passionfruit jam. It is also topped with chocolate and orange pieces.
Chloe is the name of the chocolate and raspberry flavored cruller. This one combines the rich chocolate flavor with raspberry. The red coloring together with the dark chocolate makes it the perfect treat for Valentine's Day.
Plénitude is the richest of the three with its caramel and chocolate flavor. Besides dark chocolate, it includes salted caramel cream, salted whipped ganache, and candied almonds.
The whole collection will be available at all Mister Donut locations throughout Japan from January 10, 2020 until mid-February.
