It’s not been six months since we were last in Paris and I start to get really really hungry looking at pictures like those in this excellent roundup of Paris pastries and patisseries. Patisserie Sadaharu Aoki is literally three doors away from our apartment, so my wife goes there quite often. I find it a tad over-priced and as the article says, a little too “untraditional” for my tastes. Still, for amateurs du genre, it’s a good stop on any pastry tour. All of the patisseries listed in this article are a hop, skip, or a big jump from 39 Vaugirard.
From Patisserie Sadaharu Aoki, this is a chocolate caramel tart. Chef Aoki’s pastries use many Asian flavors, which sometimes are a little far out for me. I stay with his more traditional pastries.
