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!

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.

Semaine trois!

This week we made more tarts, puff pastry dough, went to Rungis and made more tarts. The first tarts of the week were Pierre Hermé’s vanilla tart and coffee tart. Half of the class made vanilla and the other half coffee. I did the vanilla. Both tarts consist of a sweet dough crust, vanilla/coffee ganache, biscuit à la cuillère soaked in vanilla/coffee syrup, vanilla/coffee cream and vanilla/coffee glaze.

Next up was making puff pastry! Regular and inverse puff pastry dough. We made it in advance (mise en place) and proceeded with a Linzer torte……Worst pastry I have eaten while in Paris.

What happened in week 2

Bonjour! Sadly, I’m still unable to speak French.. I’m trying a bit tho. Alors, comme ça! I’m basically only speaking English, which isn’t my mother language, while trying to learn French. Every now and then I only know the right word in the wrong language.

This week we made a lot more than the previous week! I’m really happy we did, because otherwise it would be way too slow for my liking. In the picture above you can see my Instagram pictures of this week. I see I am missing some pictures, but to sum it up we made:

  • Tarte aux poires
  • Tarte creme d’amande + framboise
  • Tarte aux pommes
  • Tarte au citron
  • Tarte au chocolat
  • Tarte Victoria
  • Daquoise tart

I also had boulangerie Tuesday, which was awesome! We made baguettes, whole wheat and rye bread. I ate so much bread that day, you can not even imagine.

Our meal

School started

Week one at school.. or week six as they like to call it.

The first two days were introduction, on the third day we made some dough and on day four we made a tarte aux pommes and a flan parisien. Saturday we also had a class, but only because it was open house day. Normally I don’t have school on Saturday.

If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen this picture. We get lunch at school everyday. To show you what it looks like (how much food we get), here is a picture. Its so much food… But as I’m just a student, I’m stuffing myself at school as it’s free. Then I’ll just eat something simple for dinner.

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.

Chocolate tartelettes

My cousin from Canada, who had a stop over in The Netherlands brought me back some macarons of Ladurée from Paris. She definitely reminded me of all the sweet goodness of Paris. Last time I was in Paris was about 2 years ago now, I ate lots and lots of tartelettes. They were like everywhere, so I tried many. Filled with chocolate ganache, lemon curd, strawberry with custard… So last Sunday was the day to make some chocolate ganache tartelettes.

Strawberry tarts

Last weekend some family was coming over for bbq dinner at my parents and nowadays they kind of expect me to make a nice dessert. This time me and my mom made strawberry tarts. They were very tasty and this recipe was not very difficult.
