This is another post about Parisian Boulangeries and Pâtisseries (Version 1 is here) and it’s about all the carbs I ate in Paris!
There’s nothing really opened on a public holiday night.. even Carre-Four was closed. We ended up grabbing some dinner at a bakery…
quiche from a random bakery…. soggy soggy soggy
There’s also a boulangerie near our apartment that won Best Baguette in 2013 and decided to give it a try…
I can’t possibly eat a baguette for breakfast but I can eat sweets haha!pistachio eclair…
pain au chocolat….
Coincidentally, when I went to visit Notre Dame, there was the Fête du pain( Bread Festival) in the courtyard.Inside the tent, there were demonstrations of bread making and freshly baked goodies on sale…
I went on two separate days and tried… baked apple tart?????
baguette with nutella!
breakfast with a view!
Another new find on this trip was the Pâtisserie Pain de Sucre in the Marais.Tentation (raspberry and pistachio tart)…… it was very pretty and tasted as good as it looks…
Because it was so good, I bought another cake to eat later by the banks of the river..Bollywood (pineapple mousse infused with cilantro, pistachio cake base, candied pineapple core)….the prettiest bridge in Paris, Pont Alexander III
One of my favourite places to go is the gourmet floor of department stores. I went to Galleries Lafayette again and even thought there’s so much variety to choose from, I only bought sweets.pistachio mousse tart…..
There’s also a counter that specializes in gourmet éclairs…Vanille noix de pécans….. I love the crunchy pecans on top as it gives the normally soft éclair a crunchy texture…
Passion chocolat lait…this éclair had a very strong passion fruit taste.. which gave this a bit of a kick!
pistachio macaron from Ladurée ….
Venezuela macaron from La Maison du chocolat…….
salted caramel macaron from Pain de Sucre
