What is Mon Dessert?

 Since 2018, we have been curating and collecting the most exquisite dessert recipes and ambient ingredients from around the world, so you can create them yourself at home.

Started by patisserie chef Samina Courtin, who trained with world-renowned French chef, Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, Mon Dessert was founded upon her passion and meticulous skill for baking.
After gaining a deep understanding of the intricacy involved in making patisserie desserts, Samina realised there was an opportunity to teach the everyday person how to make these complex treats easily at home. And so, the Mon Dessert kit was born. that’s why we’re always seeking to challenge and help you develop your pastry chef skills, one recipe at a time.
Today our products are sold in Ocado and Co-op, and we’re fortunate enough to work with some of the UK’s best suppliers to provide you with ethically sourced, fair trade ingredients.
We’re also on a mission to be as sustainable as possible whilst delivering perfection. As well as giving 1% of our revenue towards the planet and our future, everything in our kits are recycled, recyclable or reusable. As a new company, we know we still have a way to go, so If you have any ideas or suggestions please do get in touch via info@mondessert.co.uk. We’d love to hear them

How long do the kits last?

The typical best before date on our kits is 3-9 months as they only contain non perishable ingredients so you can stock up as much as you like. You can then break them out for a special occasion, to impress guests or even just for your own indulgence. 


Are these desserts difficult to make?

Some of our recipes such as macarons can be, this is why they are so expensive in the shops. These kits aim to take away the pain points. The sourcing & measuring of ingredients are all taken care of, so all you have to do is follow the step by step recipe booklet to get the right techniques. There are video tutorials guiding you through too which can be found here.  The desserts are there to stretch you and get you trying desserts you may have never thought possible to make at home.

Yes, some kits will be. Our aim is to see you grow and develop your skills as budding pastry chefs!  There in no age limit or pressure on experience.  Everybody will work to their own pace.  Some might try recipes with children.  Others might want to crack open a kit for their own 'me' time. Each kit states the time you will need.  Our typical shelf life is 6 months, so you can find a moment that suits your schedule.


How are our kits made?

Every kit is handmade and made with love in our establishment with ingredients sourced as responsibly as we can.  We are always looking at ways to include ingredients that are responsibly sourced (fair trade, looking to lower carbon emissions, palm oil free).  We also offer advice on how you can adapt some of our recipes to be vegan.  The more conscience we are the better for our planet...
