A culinary journey
Discover Barcelona's flavours together with Johnny Iuzzini
Le Mériden Hotels proudly feature éclairs inspired by our unique destinations around the globe. To add to the recipes created by our talented chefs, we have partnered with award-winning pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini to develop a series of locally-inspired éclairs exclusively for Le Méridien.
Iuzzini is travelling around the world with Le Méridien Hotels to create special Eclair recipes for each chosen destination. To gain inspiration for our custom Eclair, Johnny visited iconic sites of culinary interest in and around Barcelona. During which, he was accompanied by chefs from our two Le Méridien hotels in Spain who helped guide him around the city on his journey for Barcelona's flavour.

THE FLAVOUR OF BARCELONA

Carob, Praliné and Vanilla are the basic ingredients for this Eclair edition. These are then combined with Almond paste, Fig and Vinegar glaze. The pastry is completed with a garnish of black Figs, Turks Figs, Apricot, Grapes, Quince and Marcona Almonds. Johnny puts a twist on the traditional Éclair, using the most iconic tastes of Barcelona and the surrounding areas, creating a combination of authentic flavours.
