CERCLE V CALENDAR x Mehd Hadj Mebarek
Check out the dessert you selected for October for the CercleV 2022 Calendar.
It was made by pastry chef Mehdi, who worked alongside chef Thierry Marx as a pastry chef and bakery production manager for two great years. It was after this experience that his love for the Middle East caught up with him and he decided to take the next stage in his journey at cafepouchkine qatar and then Laduree. Earlier this year, he decided to open his own shop in Doha, Qatar.
His baking is much like his personal outlook: Straightforward, delicate and emotional. Mehdi wants to make his customers happy, first and foremost, so that his pastries leave a lasting impression. He likes to represent Valrhona chocolate in his creations.
His dessert has an ardent quality to it. He decided to combine Valrhona’s Équatoriale 55% chocolate with whole hazelnut paste and praliné.
