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.

La Pâtisserie des Rêves by Philippe Conticini

So somehow La pâtisserie des rêves never really made it to the blog, although it is one of my favorite pastry shops! The chef is Philippe Coniticini. He is a well known pastry chef. His shops are one of the few shops I actually revisit more than once. I think I mentioned the Paris-Brest that I had tried once, but after that no more? Time for a change, so here is what I tried so far since coming to Paris!

Weekend tasting: Aoki again

I was checking out the new Gourmet section in the Galeries Lafayette. And because I liked Aoki quite a lot the other weekend, I decided to try something again! I chose the half sphere Citron Praliné this time.

Birthday sweets

My birthday was a while ago now (July 6th) but I haven’t posted the birthday cakes I made yet. If you are following me on Facebook or Instagram you might have seen them already, but for those who don’t: Here they are! I made all of the cakes, except the roll cake, myself. Started to prepare everything on Saturday and finished all on Sunday morning. Everyone enjoyed eating the sweets and I had a great birthday.

At the top of this post is a gallery with all the pics.

TARTE INFINIMENT MANDARINE

Pierre Hermé

Of course my parents did not only wanted to eat the viennoiseries from des Gâteau et du Pain while in Paris, so we got some stuff at Pierre Hermé as well.

From January 20 to 9 March there is this thing called Fetish infinement citron. During this period the Pierre Hermé shops have a large amount of lemon flavored pastries. We tried the cheesecake infiniment citron.
