The delicious history of Mont Blanc

The origins of the traditional Mont Blanc is still being debated. Some believe it originates from Italy under the name ‘monte bianco’ meaning white mountain. Others believe that Antoine Rumplemeyer invented the ‘mont blanc’ in France. No matter the origin, this dessert is named after the highest mountain in the Alps that is shared by both Italy and France. This is because of its shape which resembles a snow covered mountain. Once Japan was introduced to this pastry, with a few adaptations, Mont Blanc (or monburan in Japan) became one of Japan’s most popular Western-style desserts. The traditional Mont Blanc has a meringue base, but there has been many variations throughout the years. Despite the different versions of this dessert, one thing is for sure: it is nothing short of delicious.

Mont Blanc is another signature at Chez Shibata 365. The main components of this tart are the white chocolate whip cream and the milk chocolate mousse that give this tart its sweetness. A bit of dark rum is added to bring out the most flavor. The base is a crunchy tart with almond cream filling that gives more texture and balances the sweetness. Hand piped chestnut cream is the highlight of this tart. It is a rich cream with a touch of nuttines and just the right amount of sweetness that completes this dessert and adds more variety to the flavor. The ingredients used to make Mont Blanc is not easy to get your hands on, so you wouldn't  come across a good quality Mont Blanc like this often.
