Nonette celebrates Mardi Gras and the Lunar New Year 2022 with original and regressive donuts!
Two particularly gourmet events are coming in the coming weeks: Lunar New Year 2022, from February 1, then Mardi Gras, March 1! Chez Nonette, charming Vietnamese shop of the 11th arrondissement dedicated to banh mi, these two gourmet moments are celebrated with… donuts !
Since its opening, Nonette has been offering delicious plump donuts for dessert. So for the Lunar New Year and for Mardi Grasthe Chief Khanh-Ly Huynh imagined new recipes, always as original, just to delight young and old alike with a lot of asian flavors for the Lunar New Year, and regressive flavors for Shrove Tuesday.
To celebrate theyear of the water tigerNonette imagined a box of 8 donuts, as a symbol of the lucky number in Asia that evokes prosperity, available from February 1 to 14, 2022. And as is customary in Asia, donuts perpetuate the tradition of sweet/salty with 4 new flavors, to be found alongside Nonette’s signature donuts, the Caramel donut, the Glazed, the Kaya donut and the Lilikoi filled with passion fruit cream:
- Liu Sha donut : a donut with a runny heart of salted egg yolk inspired by a famous dim sum in China and whose name literally means “running sand”.
- king donut : topped with a slightly sweet glaze, this donut is topped with a pastry cream infused with durian, a fruit considered the king of fruits throughout Asia.
- Sriracha donut : donut with a sriracha icing and sprinkled with gochugaru (Korean pepper powder that is used in particular for kimchi).
- pork floss donut : surely the most amazing thing, this donut is a real nod to the Singaporean rousong toast. Brushed with a thin layer of homemade mayonnaise, it is covered with dehydrated and shredded pork in nuoc-mâm and soy sauce.
A month later, from March 1 to 8, 2022, Nonette celebrates Mardi Gras 2022 inspired by the way of doing things across the Atlantic where, on this occasion, we eat “hole” donuts using the remaining dough after having made a hole in the center of the donuts, which is then fried and sprinkled with icing sugar or royal icing. The chef thus imagined popcorn donuts, little donuts just fried and sprinkled with icing sugar! To be found in box of 12 !
