The Dune Blanche
Its name is a reference to a beach on the Cap-Ferret Peninsula, the Dune Blanche (white dune) is one of the unmissable desserts to taste on the Bay of Arcachon and in Bordeaux all year round.
This pastry, invented in Grand Piquey, has attracted sweet lovers since 2008! There is a story behind the Dune Blanche. It was invented thanks to the master baker Paul Lucas’ son. When coming home late after an evening out with friends, Brice Lucas used to fill ‘chouquettes’ (little choux buns) leftover from his father’s bakery with lightly whipped cream. A night-time snack with a promising future! In only a few years, these light, airy choux buns filled with cream have gained an increasing reputation in the whole South-West region. La Dune Blanche is today an iconic sweet speciality of Arcachon and Cap-Ferret.
Let yourself be tempted. This delicacy can be eaten plain or in 5 different flavours (raspberry-white chocolate, caramel-salted butter, nougatine with sesame seeds, Nutella and dark chocolate). They are quite simply delicious!
