How I miss this signature dessert with succès, hazelnut meringue, hazelnut ice cream and hot chocolate at Rech by Alain Ducasse in Intercontinenal Hong Kong. The chocolate used in this dish is from the Alain Ducasse chocolate manufacturer in Paris.
Imagine a circular base of thin hazelnut meringue supporting a layer of French-style no-bake cookie topped with a disc of hazelnut ice cream. Then made more yummy with warm chocolate sauce poured over to finish the dish.
Diners of Rech in Paris may recall this signature dessert. An institution dating back to the 1925, Rech was taken over by Alain Ducasse in 2007. "Mr. Rech" was created as homage to the founder, Mr. Adrien Rech.
