A selection of desserts from Paris


This is a very little post about a selection of desserts from Paris recently bought while walking in various districts of the French capital. We are often in contemplation when passing by a window shop of Parisian pâtisseries. Enjoy these sweet temptations…

We love Paris for its monuments, parks & gardens, museums, atmosphere and busyness. But we also love the French capital for its delicious pâtisseries! 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.
