So, this post is a photo montage of our favourite sweets. Trust me, this is not even half of what we ate. I've included the address and what's noteable about the places we visited. I now have my favourite patisseries and can add something to the debate about Ladurees or Pierre Hermes macarons..
|Rose and Raspberry Sainte Honore from Laduree|
Verdict: Perfect pastry, and presentation is by far the best we came across. However, I prefer the classic Sainte Honore because the rose creme is very floral, girly and in large amounts is overpowering.
|Mystere (meringue and chocolate ganache) from La Parisienne Patisserie on Rue Odessa, 75007.|
Verdict: I would highly recommend this patisserie. We tried many of their products throughout our stay and they were always delicious and fresh.
|Sainte Honore from Le Grand Epiciere 75007.|
Verdict: Best Sainte Honore in Paris! The creme patisserie inside was a lovely surprise and not too sweet. I prefer Sainte Honores that are custard filled like this one here.
|Caramel religieuse from Laduree|
Verdict: Beautiful presentation, which is typical of Laduree, and there was nothing we could fault with the taste!
|Les trois chocolats from La Parisienne on Rue Odessa|
Verdict: Beautiful presetation in this local bakery, and this dessert was one of my favourite mousse style desserts that I tried in Paris or even Lyon. 3 layers of light, yummy mousse!
|Citron tart from Le Grand Epicerie.|
Verdict: This was the best citron tart in all our sampling! The pastry was perfect in lightness and sweetness, and the lemon curd (although on the strong side) was balanced.
