Sweet delights in Paris

La Maison du Chou – handmade cream puffs in St. Germain

24th May 2013 Paris is well-known for its beautiful patisseries and I have had some new experiences this week trying and viewing some particularly elegant examples at Rose Bakery, Carette and Les Deux Magots…but this new little pastry “maison” is worth a special detour. The freshly made chou puffs are filled in front of the customer with chocolate, coffee or natural cream. Owned by Emma Gilkeson, the little interior is so elegant that it has become a destination for fashionistas and pastry connoisseurs alike. 6 choux cost 10 euros; I brought mine home in their little box on the Eurostar but they disappeared on arrival!
