Inspired by the 250th anniversary of the house of Baccarat, Chef Guy Martin created Le Harcourt, an equally exquisite dessert to match the heritage of the crystal house and its emblematic crystal glass, Le Harcout.

Chef Guy Martin’s restaurant, the Cristal Room is housed within the Baccarat Museum in Paris’ chic and exclusive 16th arrondissement. The glass itself, Le Harcourt, was inspired by the chalice seen by King Louis-Philippe in 1841. For this dessert, full of wild and flavorful strawberries, the Chef and his team fashioned a white chocolate replica in the exact mold of this signature Baccarat crystal glass. This version, however, is edible!
