Masterchef winner Larissa Takchi creates world’s first Maille mustard black forest macaron

Posted by Media Release Agency on 14th January 2020

2019 Australian Masterchef winner Larissa Takchi has collaborated with the world’s best mustard, Maille to create the world’s first black forest mustard macaron which will launch at the French music and culinary festival So Frenchy So Chic (SFSC) on 12th and 18th January 2020.

The limited-edition Black Forrest Maille Mustard Macaron is a taste sensation, innovative and adventurous with an unexpected and extremely aromatic strong rich smell of cocoa, a sweet hit of blackberry ganache followed by a subtle afternote of Maille’s honey mustard made with the warmth of classic Dijon and a dash of honey sweetness.  Its an extraordinary recipe which showcases Maille’s versatility and the creativity of Australia’s most incredible experiential pastry chef.

The Black Forest Macaron will be served from the luxury Maille food truck exclusively at SFSC festivals in Melbourne Werribee Park, Sunday 12th January 11.15am – 9pm and Sydney Bicentennial Park Saturday, 18th January 1pm -11pm.

“I’m like mad scientist in the kitchen and have always enjoyed pairing ingredients with wildly different flavours to create something that surprises and delights. I was excited to explore using Maille Mustard in a sweet confection recipe and show Aussies how versatile the kitchen cupboard staple can be. The mustard brings a completely new and intriguingly delicious dimension of flavour to the sweet macaron, which leaves you wanting more.”  says Larissa Takchi.

Festival attendees can try out the innovative creation for $4 from the Maille food truck.

Maille’s food truck will also be bursting with the brand’s varieties of epicurean mustards which will be paired with three incredible haute dogs, taking attendees on a gastronomic journey through the flavours of France:

·       Gourmet beef sausages in a brioche bun with freshly pumped Maille Chablis White Wine Mustard, a premium product infused with the sublime and subtly citrus Chablis wine – $10

·       Artisan beef sausages with soft Fromager D’Affinois double cream speciality cheese in a brioche bun, topped with Maille’s Gourmet French Honey Dijon mustard – $10
