Rémy Martin x Jean-François Piège
In the spirit of our new campaign TEAM UP FOR EXCELLENCE, Rémy Martin is pursuing the quest for excellence by teaming up with the two-star French Chef Jean-François Piège.
RÉMY MARTIN XO PAIRED WITH
“LE BLANC À MANGER”
This collaboration gave birth to eight new food pairings, both savory and sweet, revealing the aromatic elegance of XO, Club and 1738 Accord Royal. To do this, Jean-François Piège and Baptiste Loiseau worked hand in hand, each dish signed by the Chef is also tasted and validated by our Cellar Master.
For one of the pairings, Jean-François Piège offers to pair the flavours of XO with his signature dessert, Le Blanc à Manger, awakening sweet and vanilla notes with subtlety.

「法式奶凍」（LE BLANC À MANGER）
– 200 克糖粉
– 60 克葡萄糖
– 400 毫升水
– 5 個蛋白
–50 克 糖粉+ 少量用以製作焦糖圈
每份奶凍加 3 湯匙奶英式蛋奶醬
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.
