Icéclair: Something Delicious This Way Comes…

The trouble with writing about London’s fabulous foodie scene is that it makes SEEN very hungry, and never more so when we hear of something new and delicious at the glorious Melba, the coffee shop on the Strand, that is named after Auguste Escoffier’s famous pudding creation, wherein The Savoy patisserie team has created a new dessert marvel. Its summer icéclair offers ice-cream and patisserie lovers the chance to tailor-make their own frozen treat with all kinds of toppings, sauces and glazes.

The brainchild of The Savoy’s executive pastry chef, Ludwig Hely, the Icéclairs feature light choux pastry filled with hand-made ice cream in a range of flavours – from pure dark chocolate to Sicilian pistachio. Upon picking their ice cream flavour, guests are invited to choose from a chocolate, caramel or raspberry sauce and a dark, milk or white chocolate glaze before experimenting with toppings.

From the fun to the decadent, the toppings feature the likes of popping candy, cookie dough and marshmallows alongside caramelised hazelnuts and chocolate crunchy pearls. Priced at £4.95, the Icéclairs are as delicious and refreshing as they are beautiful to look at, making them the ultimate summertime indulgence in the London heat.
