Always Save Room for Dessert


If you’re ever wondering where to satisfy your sweet tooth, where to hold the next casual business meeting or where to go for coffee, Pastry Chef Jeremy Grovalet has the answer.

Located at Sofitel Dubai Downtown, La Patisserie holds the highest standards in pastry making. Resident Pastry Chef Jeremy Grovalet hails from a Parisian pastry background and implements innovation in his desserts. He began his culinary journey at the age of 16 as an apprentice in the Jean Claude Gaulupau pastry school in Versailles. He continued his journey at Hotel De Crillion in Paris where he worked for four years in honing his skills. Unique in his field at the time, the experience gained by being on the job was unmatchable.

Believing in being creative and unconventional, he says, ‘I know the taste I want but I wanted a special shape.’ a belief reflected in his sweet experiment, ‘Like A Cherry.’ A combination of pastry, chocolate & almond biscuit, sour cherry and Amarena cherry, topped with French whipped cream and a chocolate ganache, this playful dessert was an exciting way to include a delicious pastry in dainty packaging.

There is no debate when it comes to Pastry Chef Grovalet’s originality. The best kind of work requires some rule breaking, and that is what makes ‘Like A Cherry’ so special. Being a pastry chef, he is hard-pressed to point out what his favorite dessert is, but he did explain his love for the combined taste of milk chocolate and hazelnut. He believes in the diversity of flavors and the excitement of accommodating unusual flavors in other dishes for a unique appeal to taste buds.

Combining Jeremy’s talent for the finest patisseries with the comfort of this amazing lobby lounge, Le Patisserie is the perfect grazing spot to meet with friends, entertain clients or simply catch up on emails. Enjoy freshly baked pastries and coffee or indulge in the high tea experience in the hotel’s stunning lobby surrounded by glistening chandeliers and the fresh smell of French pastries. Don’t miss out on tasting the cakes and even ordering one to take home. Relax into one of the elongated sofas or sink into the armchairs whilst indulging in the gorgeous éclairs – the best way to spend an afternoon.

In the words of Jeremy himself, ‘always save room for dessert’, and there is no better place to indulge than Le Patisserie – delicious treats straight from the heart of Paris.
