Maple Roasted Chicken ($80++)
Bid adieu to kitchen complications with Alice Boulangerie’s Maple Roast Chicken! This dish is meticulously crafted using organic chicken, undergoing a 24-hour brining process with maple syrup and cinnamon for rich flavors. Roasted to perfection and generously glazed with honey cinnamon, each bite delivers exceptional tenderness. It’s served alongside truffle-infused potatoes, roasted baby carrots with an orange glaze, and a delightful mustard jus.
I had the pleasure of savoring the surprising tenderness of the chicken breast—a testament to meticulous preparation. Each bite unfolded a delightful blend of sweet and savory, making this Maple Roast Chicken the true star of my dining experience.
Embark on a culinary journey that will leave you in awe—the “Winter Acorn” from Alice Boulangerie is a show-stopping delight that I had the pleasure of savoring. This delectable dessert showcases the brand’s ever-evolving 3D avant-garde Acorn, and this winter edition is nothing short of a masterpiece.
As I indulged, I discovered a delicate white chocolate shell revealing layers of Chantilly cream, cassis and lemon mousse, hazelnut dacquoise, and blackcurrant compote. The symphony of flavors danced on my palate, creating a harmonious blend that truly captured the essence of the season.
To complete this exquisite creation with a sweet finale and a snowy aesthetic, candied lemon and lemon meringue adorned the dessert. Each bite was a revelation, and I couldn’t help but appreciate the artistry and innovation that went into crafting this winter wonder.
If you’re seeking a culinary experience that transcends the ordinary, the “Winter Acorn” is a must-try, promising to enchant your taste buds with its unique and delightful combination of seasonal flavors.
Christmas Rum Fruit Cake ($72++)
From my perspective, fruit cakes often fall into the categories of being excessively sweet, overly dry, too dense, or easily forgettable. However, Alice Boulangerie’s rum fruit cake defies these expectations. Despite the syrupy appearance of the glaze, it achieves the perfect level of sweetness without becoming cloying. The texture and density of the cake are impeccably balanced, and I can discern a subtle hint of rum among the dried fruits. I learned that these fruits are soaked in rum for at least a month, which undoubtedly contributes to the rich flavor. Even after spending days in my fridge, the cake retains its glorious moisture, proving itself to be worth every calorie. The consensus among those I shared it with? Simply delightful.

Trust me, when it comes to cheese dreams and Instagram-worthy delights, Alice Boulangerie takes the crown. Dive into the grand platter and let the cheese feast begin.
