Once upon a time there was a northern pastry chef named Frédéric Vaucamps, who is none other than the creator of the “Merveilleux de Fred”. At the end of the 1980s he developed his inimitable Merveilleux recipe: an airy and tender meringue, coated with chocolate whipped cream, and covered with shavings of chocolate. These ingredients and his skills combine to make a delicious cake with a unique flavour. Success was immediate. Customers flooded into his shop in Vieux Lille to discover this irresistible and gourmet cake. The Merveilleux was born!
With this experience, Fred went on to create diverse versions of his cake. So the Incroyable, Impensable, Excentrique, Magnifique and the Sans-Culotte joined the Merveilleux family!!
