Pleasure is not available everyday at Laurent and thus it is better to call up to check their stock.
This looks lovely on the plate and to be frank, it was a mental torture to wait for Yuan to finish snapping this baby. The moment he is done, I simply digged in.
Comparing with my first encounter of BakerZin's Pleasure, this was indeed incredible. It has what I will describe as crisp (from the chocolate sheets), rich (from the chocolate ganache), crunchy (from the hazelnut praline) and chewy (from the dacquoise) all in one bite.
When rich chocolate with moderate sweetness pairs with milk chocolate-hazelnut praline and dacquoise, it is simply what we call a match in heaven.
I guess I do not have to say much about Laurent's chocolates. The thin sheets of chocolate on the pleasure was just the right thickness and smoothness. This is a must try. (I must warn that it is rather expensive at $9.60)
