You don’t need to be a patisserie pro to appreciate the beauty of the festive treats being made to order by Société des Bains de Mer’s chefs this Christmas… Here’s everything you need to know about the delectable range, from how to order to where to collect.  

For this holiday season, top patisserie chefs from across the Société des Bains de Mer (SBM) portfolio have crafted a sumptuous selection of sweet and savoury delights for the public to admire and enjoy.  

Artistic chocolate creations and classic holiday treats 

The range is the product of a collaboration between chefs Ken Thomas, Cédric Campanella, Cédric Bernard and Thierry Saez Manzanares, and offers an array of gourmet options that includes masterful chocolate sculptures featuring Rudolph, snowmen and Father Christmas.  

Prices are from €15 for a chocolate reindeer lollipop to €85 for an intricately designed sleigh, ensuring there’s something for every taste and budget. 

For those seeking more traditional holiday treats, the SBM patisserie service also offers entremets like the award-winning ‘Blanc Manteau’ and a festive ‘Bûche Magie de Noel’, each serving six to eight portions.  

The collection includes classic items like the ‘Traditionnel Kouglof’, Panettone and galettes alongside unique creations like the magnificent ‘Bûche Traineau’ and ‘Bûche Bougie’.

Add to this a personalised hamper service, which includes treats such as smoked salmon, foie gras, Yule logs and gourmet chocolates, and SBM really has its customers covered this year.  

Orders can be placed for these exquisite creations at two locations: the Chalet Monte-Carlo Catering on Avenue de Monte-Carlo (+377 98 06 60 27) and Mada One (+377 98 06 68 68), which is open daily from 8.30am to 6pm.  

The “made to order” service started back in November and will continue until Saturday 6th January.
