Broken Biscuits – Paris

9 août 2015 § 6 Commentaires

Do you remember when I was talking about the exquisite pastries at Honor Café, rue Saint Honoré? They are from Broken Biscuits a tiny little coffee/cake shop in the dead end street Passage Rochebrune. Cakes and pastries are freshly baked here everyday by Christine O’Sullivan who was a contestant in the Irish MasterChef.

The muffin carrot cake and the lemon pavot are beyond what you usually expect from these pastries, they are completely addictive! I don’t like lemon but Christine’s version is rich and mega moist. You can also have breakfast with a bowl of granola or lunch with quiches and sandwiches. I will try them for sure on my next visits!

If it is too far for you, you can always enjoy the pastries at Honor Café, Loustic & Fondation coffee shops. As it is a really tiny inside, try to avoid rush times.

Tea time at The Peninsula – Paris

20 juillet 2015 § 2 Commentaires

The Peninsula Group opened last August their first European hotel in Paris after four years of careful restoration. It is located close by the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower and the Champs Elysees, a dream location for anyone visiting the City of Lights. My friend and I were talking about how impressive the palace looked like and we finally decided to book for the Afternoon Tea. peninsula paris afternoon tea interior gold architecture lobby sugarsheet

Mori Yoshida – Paris

19 juillet 2015 § 3 Commentaires

After visiting Tokyo last year, I discovered a city which was mastering fine pastries as well as do the French. Many chefs study in France and return to Japan for opening their own shops. Among them some decide to stay in France, as it is the case for Mori Yoshida, who was trained by Philippe Conticini, the chef behind the worldwide renowned « Patisserie des rêves ». The only reference to his japanese roots relies in the Strawberry chiffon cake, otherwise it is a classic « french » pastry shop with viennoiseries, cakes, macarons and fine chocolates.

Mori Yoshida has chosen a calm residential area – far from the usual tourists spots, with local customers who are aware of the quality of the ingredients. I am quite sure he will not stay unknown for a long time as his pastries are true pieces of art. The classic Gateau au chocolat is exactly what you are expecting from it: moist, with a strong chocolate flavor. I also tried the Chocolate Eclair, which has an incredible filling. You will not be disappointed by the viennoiserie as well: I had a crush on the Banana chausson and the Hazelnut financier.

For me he does the best macarons. No fuss, just classic flavors such as Caramel, Chocolate, Vanilla with a really dense and rich filling between the two meringue parts. mori yoshida paris best pastry banana chausson eiffel tower sugarsheet

It is located not far from Coutume Cafe, Musée Rodin and the Invalides.
