For those of you do are not familiar with the Manon Sucre, they come in two different flavors: Vanilla and Coffee.
This year, The Frenchman’s Corner is offering several variations of this bread for the 2019 holiday season. We are offering Albertengo panettone from the Piedmont region of Italy. They use nothing but the best ingredients to create their breads. Albertengo only makes two pastries a year, Panettone for Christmas and the other being the Colomba Pasquale for Easter. Since 1905 they have become the best, if not the best, panettone makers in the world.
At The Frenchman’s Corner, we are always looking for the best chocolates and other confections that are available. We believe we have found one of the best small batch toffees available and are very proud to be able to offer this to our patrons. Our toffee comes from the beautiful state of Utah and is wonderfully buttery and melts in your mouth. It is not too sticky or too hard. We typically carry four different flavors.
Praline may have originally been inspired in France by the cook of Marshal du Plessis-Praslin (1598–1675), with the word praline deriving from the name Praslin. Early pralines used whole almonds individually coated in caramelized sugar, as opposed to dark nougat, where a sheet of caramelized sugar covers many nuts.
