The first time I fell in love with French pastries was in high school on a trip to see Cynthia in Paris. I fell hard for lemon tarts (tarte au citron) and wanted to stop in for one every time we passed a patisserie. My obsession didn’t end even upon my return to the U.S. Freshman year in college, I was notorious for going to Dean & Deluca daily for a mini lemon tart. Years later, while I still hold a fondness for tarte au citron, there are just too many French pastries to love only one.
And now there’s a guide to all of them. The Little Bookroom’s The Patisseries of Paris is the perfect guide for sweets lovers who want to know what to get where in Paris from intensely flavored macarons to the most sophisticated chocolates. You’ll also learn important tid-bits like what time in-the-know Parisians buy their favorite pastries fresh out of the oven. It’s a must-have for food lovers traveling in Paris!
