What’s the best way to start your week? With a delicious French pastry, of course. And one of the world’s best French éclairs has just landed in Doha.
L’Éclair De Génie, located in Tawar Mall, has just opened its doors to the public. This all-éclair shop straight from Paris is led by celebrity pastry chef Christophe Adam.
For those of you who don’t know, the signature eclairs here are a reinvention of the classic French patisserie from Le Marais Bakery.
The franchise also offers a delicious range of grocery chocolates in a bright, colourful and tasteful setting.
Thanks to Adam, the best ingredients are sourced locally and from around the world. Some of these include hazelnuts and seal salt from a specific region in France, pistachios from Iran, vanilla from Madagascar and coffee from Ethiopia.
All the chocolates are served in clear packaging, so you can see exactly what you are buying.
L’Eclair de Génie also provides personalised eclairs, éclair towers and other personalised hampers which are ideal to give away as gifts.
Guests can expect signature éclair flavours such as pistachio cherry, passion raspberry, chouchou caramel, grand cru amere, hazelnut praline chocolate, vanilla Madagascar and pecan, lemon yuzu meringue and a flavour exclusive to Qatar – the fig éclair.
The shop is run by Albaker Investments and Paradise Blue Beach Restaurants Doha.
There are over 20 branches of these éclair shops around the world including Paris, France, Japan, Hong Kong, Milan, Italy, and Moscow, Russia, Georgia, New York, USA and Vancouver, Canada.
And now, 257 kinds of eclairs are in Doha. That’s 257 reasons to head there immediately.
