In the spirit of collaboration, Rémy Martin pursues the quest for excellence by teaming up with the two-star French Chef Jean-François Piège.

Eight new food pairings, both savory and sweet, were created revealing the aromatic elegance of XO, Club and 1738 Accord Royal. Jean-François Piège and Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau worked hand in hand to taste the dishes and validate the food pairings.

For one of the pairings, Jean-François has paired the flavors of Rémy Martin XO with his signature dessert, Le Blanc à Manger, awakening sweet and vanilla notes with subtlety.

Le Blanc à Manger

Serves 8

Preparation time: 1hr

Cooking time: 25mins


3 tablespoons of crème anglaise for each Blanc-Manger

For the caramel circles:

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (200g)

1/5 cup glucose (60g)

1 2/3 cups water (40cl)

For the blanc-mangers:

Creamed butter for the circles

5 egg whites

1/2 cup powdered sugar (50g) + a little extra for the circles


To make the caramel circles: mix the powdered sugar, glucose and water, then heat to make a caramel. Pour the mixture onto a silicone mat or a sheet of parchment paper and leave it to cool.

Preheat the oven to 400°F (180°C).

When the caramel has set hard, grind it into a fine powder. Using a small sieve, sift the powder onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper, onto stencils measuring 5 and 6cm in diameter. Bake in the oven for a few seconds to melt the caramel into circles. Remove from the oven and reduce the temperature to 200°F (90°C).

To make the blanc-mangers: grease eight circles of 5 to 6cm in diameter with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Add the sugar. Take a piping bag and pipe the egg whites in the middle of circles, and higher around the sides to form a well in the centre. Carefully place 1 tablespoon of crème anglaise in this well, then cover with more egg white and smooth over with a spatula.

Bake for 10 minutes, then remove the blancmanges from the oven and rest for 1 minute before gently removing them from their circles.

Place a blanc-manger onto each plate and gently position a circle of caramel on the top.
