NEW ! Fresh Fruit Salad of the day with Fresh Mint
Since we found the name Horsechoux®, to create a dessert that could represent the town of Cheltenham, with the right chocolate thickness for a perfect crunch and the right smoothness of the cream, it took us almost 2 years.
We are pleased to offer it to you as part of our takeaway service. The shape of the dessert is a nod to the racing heritage of this classic and classy Regency town.
This dessert not only looks amazing, but it is absolutely delicious! A combination of choux pastry, cream with various flavours, crunchy “feuilletine” with a chocolate topping. We are truly excited to bring this dessert to you at L’Artisan!
For a start we will have an interesting range of flavours…
The Racecourse– hazelnut and almond praline, perfect for nut lovers along with…
-The Pitville Park – pistachio
The Pump Room– zingy lemon and
The Queens– raspberry, summer on a plate!
All of the above can have either a milk or dark chocolate horseshoe on the top – for you to choose!
Unique, classic fresh Artisan patisserie created just for you to celebrate the best of Cheltenham at the takeaway price of £4.95.
