Based on selective mapping in the early 2020s, François Blanc, a journalist for Fou de Pâtiserie, presents the 50 must-see pastry shops and 100 recipes in the book, Le Paris des Pâtisseries. Available in French in our Books For Chefs online store, it is an essential book for discovering the best that the French capital can offer those with a sweet tooth.
In its more than 300 pages, the volume shows recipes of all levels to make at home, with detailed step-by-step instructions from renowned chefs such as Philippe Conticini, Yann Couvreur, Claire Damon, Maxime Frédéric, Cédric Grolet, and Pierre Hermé, among others.
Blanc has not left any corner of Paris unturned, from the 8th Arrondissement with its luxury tea houses to the 7th Arrondissement, a historic district of haute pastry. From each business he has chosen two creations that represent the best of each establishment and will help the reader to understand the identity of each pastry chef. Definitely a valuable address list for neophyte gourmands.
