    Second up in my series of guest bloggers is Her Favourite Food! Read on to hear her round-up of the new Summer range at Maison Blanc:

    Summer has finally lit up London and the restaurants have responded in full force. There are suddenly a host of summer and sunshine themed pop-ups, bars and summer menus being launched to celebrate this long awaited season.

    I had the opportunity to try out one particularly indulgent menu at gorgeous French patisserie Maison Blanc. They have recently launched their Summer Patisserie range and when I heard about what was on offer I couldn’t wait to try it out! So on one particularly glorious afternoon I headed to the beautiful St John’s Wood High Street and got myself a table at Maison Blanc ready to spend a few hours indulging in treats!

    This year Maison Blanc has focussed their summer patisserie menu on marvellous delicious fresh cream filled macarons, but in true Maison Blanc style they have updated this classic French confection to new delicious heights. They have three flavours of rather large macarons to choose from, including  Blackberry Mac-nifique, the romantic rose flavoured and raspberry filled Ispahan Macaron or the light and zesty Lemon Cream Macaron. These were delicious as the meringue and almond crisp domes encase silky flavour infused creams, and there are also delectable fresh berries nestled into the smooth cream layer. All of these prove an ideal treat for young and old, a perfect gift to give friends or family or simply a mini indulgence of your own.

    But Maison Blanc's summer offering does not stop there, as they have also developed a delectable selection of summer patisserie to celebrate the wonderful fresh fruity flavours that summer brings with it. These include cupcakes that encompass summertime favourites, such as the zingy lemon cream centred Lemon Curd Cupcake, the fragrant strawberry buttercream topped Strawberry Cream Cupcake and the sumptuous chocolate sponge based Choco Berry Cupcake. I would recommend trying a macaron and a cupcake of different flavours to bring a bit of variety. Both are large enough to satisfy even the hungriest appetite.

    This summer, Maison Blanc’s tarts also follow in this fruity fashion, boasting the gorgeous edible flower decorated Lemon Hibiscus Tart and the pistachio cream based Tarte aux Fraises, all of which were stunning.

    And of course with all that food you need a drink to wash it down, and Masion Blanc have developed a brand new and refreshing range of iced drinks and frappes which change every day! Maison Blanc is the authentic French Boulangerie and P√Ętisserie and the first authentic p√Ętisserie and bakery in England. This is why it is one of my favourite destinations for a sweet treat. Their new summer menu is delightful and one which I am sure to be sampling a few times this season!
