Some of them offer some remarkable tartlets, éclairs, religieuses and other sweet treats… you’ll be spoilt for choice. Here is a small photo selection.

Paris is quite unique: it seems that nowhere else in the world you can find so many delicious sweet temptations. One of the best pâtisseries in France are those founded by Pierre Hermé. Since 2001 the pastry chef (a native from Alsace) has been creating pâtisseries that look as beautiful as they taste. When we wanted to learn more about French pâtisseries from Sydney, Australia we discovered Pierre Hermé’s ‘Paris Pâtisseries: History, Shops, Recipes’. What we liked about this book was the superb photos and the 25 recipes included.
