Dessertree proprietor and pâtissier Lee Hyun-hee is ona mission to bring quality desserts to Seoul. After having studied the culinary arts in Paris for a number of years, she decided to bring authentic French chocolates, creams and pastries to Seoul in the way that dessert should always be served: in three courses. While dining à la carte is an option, the set menu is ideal for those with a sweet tooth, and includes an amuse-bouche (French for small hors d’oeuvres), petit-fours (a trio of small desserts such as walnut macarons, pecan meringue, and rose wine jelly topped with pomegranate), and a choice of a main dessert with tea or coffee. Each dish excels in taste and presentation and features seasonal ingredients, so the menu changes frequently. Be sure to arrive when the cafe opens to get a spot at the bar, which offers great views of the pastry chefs at work.
