This September, Lune has gone global, taking inspiration from the US, the Middle East and Greece for its five new flavours – including carrot cake, lamington and baklava.
One of life’s simple pleasures is walking into a Lune Croissanterie and gazing at the smorgasbord of pastries available. What follows – choosing which one to indulge in – is not so simple. And Lune has made that decision all the more difficult by releasing five new flavours for its new September menu.
First off the bat is a take on a homegrown hero: the lamington cruffin. Lune doesn’t deal in sponge cakes; instead, this lamington is created with a laminated pastry filled with raspberry jam and whipped cream, dipped in chocolate ganache and rolled in fine coconut.
Also on the menu is a “carrot cake” croissant, generously filled with a carrot and walnut frangipane and topped with a spiced carrot cake crumble and a piping of cream cheese icing; “the turtle”, a pain au chocolate filled with chocolate and topped with a shell of candied pecans and gooey salted caramel; “beetroot goat’s curd”, a Middle Eastern-inspired twist piped with pockets of beetroot hummus and goat’s curd and sprinkled with zingy za’atar and beetroot powder.
Lune’s own rendition of the Greek sweet, baklava, rounds off the September menu with a caramelised, laminated puck-shaped pastry filled with a mixture of walnut, pistachio, honey, and orange blossom.
Head here to pre-order.
