A Jewel of a Dessert Arrives on the Fine-Dining Scene in Paris, France

Le Pinxo at the Renaissance Paris Vendome Hotel Debuts a Toothsome Treasure Inspired by an Iconic Ring

PARIS, FRANCE -- (Marketwired) -- 01/30/14 -- If entrees can be called masterpieces, then surely desserts can be labeled as gems. For while the style and sizzle of an excellent main course inspire the kind of awe ordinarily reserved for artwork, the meticulous craftsmanship of an exquisite dessert feels a lot like a diamond necklace. It's beautiful, it's rare -- and it inspires a little envy in onlookers. With this in mind, Le Pinxo, located in the Renaissance Paris Vendome Hotel, is set to unveil a seductive new dessert whose origins are no less illustrious than the classic L'oeuvre Noire ring by Mauboussin.

Drawing its name and its inspiration from L'oeuvre Noire, the dessert is composed of three primary ingredients: chocolate (for indulgence), blackcurrant (for the color of the ring's stone) and praline (for structure and crunch). These flavors unite via chocolate mousse, blackcurrant compote and sorbet, shortcrust pastry and a praline accent for a dessert that promises to steal the spotlight among Paris, France's fine dining establishments.

Chef Mathieu Robillard and Pastry Chef Bryan Esposito honored the pedigree of Mauboussin, the legendary French jeweler whose lineage stretches all the way back to 1827, with this carefully constructed confection. Mauboussin's iconic pieces have come to define eras, and L'oeuvre Noire is no exception. Crafted from white gold, enamel, pavé diamonds and a one-carat black diamond, the ring feels both powerful and feminine. And the chefs at this five-star hotel in Paris took note, embellishing their dessert with a fresh rose petal, blackcurrant-flavored pink sugar, pearls, a dark-chocolate disc imprinted with the Mauboussin star and, in a final flourish, a sugar diamond.

L'oeuvre Noire is the latest in a long line of impressive dishes served at Le Pinxo. Helmed by culinary legend Alain Dutournier (who has two Michelin stars to his credit), the restaurant celebrates the gastronomic heritage of Dutournier's homeland in southwest France. Guests can enter the chic restaurant of this Paris five-star hotel to share, sample and nibble tapas like never before. By transforming tapas into a culinary adventure, Dutournier's Le Pinxo has become a fine-dining restaurant unlike any other in Paris today.

Le Pinxo may have a reputation for excellence, but it is also inviting and accessible. So while the L'oeuvre Noire ring may have to remain on most visitors' wish lists for some time, the dessert is a must-try indulgence available for EUR 15 between February 15 and April 15, 2014.
