Camille Lesecq unveils his new "Frimousse" at the Hotel Le Meurice The only edible doll for Unicef
Le Meurice is delighted to announce that it will be participating in the seventh annual Unicef France's event, "Frimousses de Créateurs". This event brings together one hundred of the world's leading designers from the fashion, art and design worlds, each of whom have designed a fabulous doll which will be auctioned to raise money for Unicef. Camille Lesecq, Le Meurice's pastry chef, has created the only edible doll to be part of the auction; a veritable treat for the eyes and the palate. Camille's unique "Frimousse" is made out of black chocolate, except for its golden curls and lovingly hugs a Pistache's baby blanket. Studio Harcourt have created a signed portrait of the doll with its creator, Camille Lesecq, which will be won with the doll at the auction. All the "Frimousses de Créateurs" will be on display from 10th to 15th November 2009 at the Petit Palais in Paris. The dolls will then be taken to Drouot-Montaigne for a public auction on November 19th at 7.30pm. This year, the funds raised will go towards financing a vaccination campaign in Darfur and is supported by Laeticia Halliday, and Delphine Arnault-Gancia, President of the Comite d'Honneur. Camille Lesecq joined Le Meurice as a Pastry Chef in 2004 and now at just 28, he manages a team of twelve in the hotel's kitchens. Here he creates deliciously innovative desserts alongside 3 Michelin star Executive Chef, Yannick Alléno.
