Le Crémet d'Anjou THE regional dessert available all year round!

Le Crémet d'Anjou 

The regional dessert available all year round!

Each restaurant and each household has its own recipe and their way of preparing our regional dessert.
Chef Sam is proud of his recipe and would like to share it with you. 
Our recipe for Crémet d'Anjou could also be called Crémet de Fontevraud!
Enjoy this local dessert and others at our La Croix Blanche restaurant.

This recipe is a perfect match with Loire Valley wines; either sweet such as Saumur moelleux, Coteaux du Layon or a bubbly such as Crémant de Loire or Saumur brut.
