Serious Eats: 10 Must-Try Sweets in Paris

Friday, September 2, 2011 6comments No tags Permalink 0

Over at Serious Eats the other day I did a post on 10 Must-Try Sweets in Paris, caramel mille-feuilles, blueberry madelines, black sesame + matcha zen cakes, cherry financiers, and glacés collected and devoured from our most recent visits to Paris.

‘Must-Try’ is the key word – it’s not a list of the ten best sweets. And certainly not a list of the only sweets I’d recommended. So forgive me if I left out your favorites! And if I did, please tell me what those favorites are! We would need to create a list of at least a hundred sweets in order to make it a complete compilation, no? ;)

Bon Appétit! See the breakdown below:

Puits d’amours from Stohrer

Tarte aux Pommes from Poilâne

Tea Time Cake from Pain de Sucre



Ice cream from Berthillon

Montebello from Pierre Hermé

Zen from Sadaharu Aoki

Dark Chocolate and Cherry Financiers from Au Panetier

Salted Caramel Ice Cream from Ladurée

Madeleines from Fauchon

Mille-Feuille from Jacques Genin
