World renowned for its gastronomy, Paris is the birthplace of the best pastries in the world. Gourmets, gourmands and the simply peckish should not miss the opportunity to savour wonderful gâteaux and other sweet delicacies while staying in the capital. The Hotel des Arts Montmartre recommends some of the city’s best pâtisseries.
Pierre Hermé; the art of the macaron
This is a must! If you like macarons and their gorgeous almond taste, you must visit the pâtisserie of Pierre Hermé. The king of the macaron, he offers his masterful creations in a host of new flavours, bringing you desserts as beautiful to look at as they are to eat.
Cyril Lignac; contemporary and generous
The high-profile chef demonstrates his undeniable talent with his delicious pâtisserie. On the agenda are classics revisited, tradition jostling with panache, and other irresistible and exquisitely presented surprises.
L'Éclair de Génie; the obsession we love
Like the macarons mentioned above, the good old éclair is here revisited, revivified and brought up to date with decadently tempting and popular flavours. Adorable on the plate, succulent on the palate, these contemporary éclairs are essential!
Arnaud Larher; the flavours of childhood
Innovation in pâtisserie is certainly good and worthwhile ... But nostalgia is a powerful emotion and you never forget the traditional pâtisseries that rocked your childhood, do you? Arnaud Larher pays tribute to good gâteaux and perfect pâtisseries in the purest of traditions. Rum babas, Paris-Brest, fruit pies and other classics await you there. Relish fine pâtisseries that invoke the spirit of childhood. A very moving treat!
After this sweet trip to the best bakeries of the capital, you can take your delicious treats back for a session of succulent self-indulgence in the comfort of your room at the Hotel des Arts!
