Last year, Hotel de Crillon and their pastry chef Matthieu Carlin delighted Parisians and tourists with an Ice-Cream Truck offering you to enjoy tasty ice-creams worthy of the palace. Good news if you missed this experience or if you were craving these delicious creations: Hôtel de Crillon does it again this Summer 2021!
This year, the format is said to change from the vintage truck that we have known so far. The launch date is not known yet, but we know chef Matthieu Carlin will be running it again to delight one's taste buds! You will be expected on the Place de la Concorde under the arches of the iconic palace. A location of choice to enjoy a delicious ice-cream while walking around the Tuileries Garden or the Avenue des Champs-Elysées!
Yes, if you are looking for some delicious, and homemade ice cream, you will not be disappointed. For his truck, chef Matthieu Carlin offered 3 containers: a bowl, perfect for children, a classic cone, and a taco-inspired wafer named ice-cream wafer. Cones and wafers are home-made of course.
Moving on to flavors, the chef went for classic flavors highly appreciated and oh-so delicious. All ice creams are homemade and made the very morning, without colorant nor preservatives. Picture this: vanilla ice cream with Madagascan and Tahitian beans infused for 24 hours in milk so that they can deliver all their flavors! Not too sweet, these ice creams and sorbets are ideally balanced to highlight flavors without being too much. Refreshing and not too fat, we love them.
Chocolate, hazelnut praline, salted butter caramel, raspberry, lemon, and sorbet are on the menu. The day we came, we fell for the temporary pina colada with a nice taste of coconut and pineapple. Once you have picked the flavor-s you want, go for some mouthwatering toppings. Crumble, caramelized pistachios, roasted almonds, chocolate sauce and/or whipped cream, the choice is all yours.
The truck also provided you with lemonades and fresh beverages from French producers. Allow €5 for a bowl of ice cream, and €8 for the wafer or a cone with ice cream and topping of your choice.
In other words, we are looking forward to enjoying Hôtel de Crillon ice-creams again, are you not?
