SPD4459 [Dessert 甜品篇] petite Amanda - by Jun

Hey, dessert time again!! Do you wanna have some "simple, and not too sweet, like authentic French pastries"?! (YES!!!) 

Alright, then let me introduce a dessert store called petite Amanda.


petite Amanda is established by Amanda S, a well-known model of French-Taiwanese. Amanda’s passion for pastries began in 2005 when she started her training at the renowned school of culinary arts, Le Cordon Bleu in Paris where she got her first certificate.


Amanda then went on to gain further accreditations including a diploma in pastry. She gained on-the-job experience over the past six years by serving as an apprentice at Caprice in Hong Kong's Four Season Hotel, Ladurée in Paris and Jacques Genin, a small Parisian chocolatier.


And so, with all the practical skills on hand, Amanda decided to follow her childhood dream and opened petite Amanda. Her dream shop took a year of hard work to put together and today she is proud to share with you her passion for pastries at petite Amanda.

Let's see what does petite Amanda have!



Looks delicious and attractive, right? Now, I am going to introduce three types of desserts which gave me a delightful dessert experience!



Mille Feuille
The Mille Feuille is really good! It is made with Puff Pastry & Light Pastry Cream. I would like to recommend you to eat this first since it is light but surprisingly not as light as those tasteless desserts. Fortunately, it is not too sweet so I was not guilty after eating these 3 layers.. Haha!!


Plasir Sucre
After having a light dessert, maybe you can move on to a heavier one. I highly recommend this Plasir Sucre, which is Amanda's favourite pick. It is a heavier dessert since it is made with crunchy wafer-thin chocolate and hazelnut concoction. Not only did it give me a richer flavor, each layer also gave me different texture and melted in my mouth, what an irresistible and pleasant taste! 

One more little thing I would like to share with you guys --- the package design.




The package for take-away desserts looks like a pyramid. I really appreciate this design since it makes me think of the Egyptian Pyramid. Is there any mystery inside the pyramid? What will I see when I open the pyramid? Perhaps.. the mysteriously delicious desserts are already a kind of mystery... 



It's not surprising to see petite Amanda's desserts on magazines or newspapers.
