Weekend Tasting: Des gateaux et du Pain

Last time I tried the apple tarte tatin from des Gateaux et du Pain, this time we tried the damassé and the chausson au citron. The chausson I had tried before already actually and I think my taste preference changed a bit over these months.

The damessé is like a baby of the parisian flan and the Portugese pastel de nata. It had a mild flavor and was not very sweet. I might say the flavor was too mild maybe. Not bad though, just not as good as the Portugese Pastel de Belem.

Last time I found the chausson a bit too sour, this time I really appreciated the acidity.

Overall I really like Des Gateaux et du Pain, the pastries are made less sweet which I appreciate.

Weekend tastings: Pastry tour

I had a little “pastry tour” with a wonderful blogreader – Hey Samantha!! ^^ – and my new flatmate (+ sister later)! We started off with Mori Yoshida, proceeded to Rue du Bac where La Patisserie des Reves, des Gateaux et du Pain and Angelina are located. After that we went to Sadaharu Aoki near Jardin du Luxembourg and to Samantha’s place for the degustation.
