A Taste of French Desserts with Chef Hubert

Here we go, part 2 of the French onslaught. I promised you a handsome French chef (ladies) and some delicious French pastries (also ladies). I'm going to keep that promise because that's what we at Forever hungry aim to do. We're just evil that way.

This is Chef Hubert (pronounced 'uu-bearh' because the French are awesome that way). He's going to make your desserts today. Sweet, sweet desserts. Yum yum yum. Don't blink or you'll miss all the deliciousness.

First of all, there's the classic French tea cake with chocolate ganache.

The tea cake really goes well with the creamy foam on top and the chocolate just completes the taste. The funny thing about Chef Hubert was that he didn't finish making all of the tea cakes himself.

Instead, he had his assistant continue, which was pretty funny to see because of the difference between both of their handiworks. The master and the apprentice indeed.

Next up is the passion fruit macaroons.

I sent a picture of the macaroons to my former colleague and she gave me a 5 page Whatsapp message lambasting me for not sharing both the hot French chef and the tempting macaroons. For me, the macaroons were a bit too...passion fruity? I think it was the cocoa which gave it a bittersweet taste which I didn't really fancy.

Lastly, agrums with hazelnut daquiose and white chocolate mousse.

I didn't get to try this dessert (maybe because it was snapped up too quickly) but it looks really nice. Chef Hubert took a lot of time and effort to make a cake like this, which speaks volumes over the quality of his work. He really puts in his 100% into making a dessert.

In his own words and maybe slightly paraphrased 'Making desserts comes from the heart.'

Which is why he can come up with such delicious looking (and most possibly tasting) agrums.

That's it for French desserts with Chef Hubert. The third and final part will be the tasting of the different kinds of French cuisine as well as a short interview with Chef Hubert and Chef Darren. Wait for it.
