Mr Donut collaborates with current 'world’s best pastry chef' Pierre Marcolini on new collection

By Ben K, grape Japan

Since 2017, Mister Donuts Japan has tapped top names in patisserie and chocolate as part of their "there's something good at Mister Donuts" slogan. Previously, they have collaborated on donut and pastry collections with culinary maestros the likes of Toshi Yoroizuka and Pierre Hermé, the latter of which was named the World's Best Pastry Chef in 2016 by the World's 50 Best Restaurants.

Their latest collaboration is with Pierre Marcolini.

His name was already synonymous with excellent pastries and chocolates in Japan, but it became even more important when it was his turn to receive the "Best Pastry Chef in the World" title, this time at the World Pastry Stars event last October. The Belgian chocolatier, who chooses his own cocoa beans and is known as the pioneer of bean-to-bar sourcing, was selected unanimously by a panel of independent journalists to receive the honor.

The "Mister Donut meets Pierre Marcolini" collection is composed of four donuts and two danishes featuring chocolate, caramel, raspberry, and hazelnut flavors.

Fondant Chocolat Donut: Chocolate

This premium donut inspired by Pierre Marcolini's "Grand Cru" chocolate bonbons has Ganache cream with a rich cacao flavor sandwiched between two halves of a moist and rich chocolate donut. The surface is coated with chocolate and topped with bittersweet chocolate flakes.
