France Pavilion's Ambassador Jessica Préalpato was in Dubai between March 22nd and March 26th to start to shape her signature dessert using selected ingredients to represent Middle Eastern flavors.
This dessert will be the link between French and Gulf cuisine while respecting Jessica Préalpato's concept of desseralité. Elaborated in relation to local producers and suppliers, it will be the result of an extensive work of culinary exploration. The signature dessert will be ready to be discovered at the France Pavilion from October 1th and throughout Expo at the Belvédère and at the ground-floor restaurant.
