Patrick Roger by Barbra Austin

Patrick Roger

The clean lines of Roger’s shop show off his bold style and playful displays. Chocolate is just one medium used by this talented sculptor. Contemporary flavors like lemongrass and Sichuan peppercorn mix with classic pralines, dark ganaches, and caramels. A Meilleur Ouvrier de France.

Time Out (2012) “Roger is shaking up the art of chocolate-making. Whereas otherchocolatiers aim for gloss, Roger may create a brushed effect on hens so realistic you almost expect them to lay (chocolate) eggs.”

David Lebovitz (2011) “…extraordinary confections and impressive chocolate sculptures…”

Figaroscope (2010) “L’enfant terrible de la ganache…”

Barbra Austin (2009) “You can always count on a seeing something astounding in the windows of this master chocolatier…”

Dorie Greenspan (2009) “Buy…something with praline at Patrick Roger, two of the city’s best chocolatiers. “

Time Out (2012) “Robert Linxe opened his first Paris shop in 1977, and has been inventing new chocolates ever since, using Asian spices, fresh fruits and herbal infusions. The apricot-infused truffles, salted caramel macarons and hazelnut pralines are all worth courting a cavity for.”

Figaroscope (2010) “Une institution qui mérite toujours sa réputation.”

David Lebovitz (2007) “…one of the most successful stories in chocolate history….I don’t stop in as often as I should. From now on, that’s going to change.”

L’Express (2011) “La ganache noire épate les yeux, le nez, les papilles; belle, odorante et longue en bouche. Le reste est honorable, mais moins spectaculaire, on cherche un fruit de la passion trop discret dans la ganache lait, une texture mieux travaillée dans le praliné ou plus d’arôme dans une spécialité au café pourtant bien façonnée…”

Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “Seul le classique sûr a ici sa place…On vient quérir là des rochers pralinés à fondre, de jolies bouchées pralinées, de savantes tablettes, de belles ganaches, avec des parfums superbes…”

David Lebovitz (2007) “In case you think candymaking is a lost art, it isn’t, and lots of homemade candies are whipped up daily at REGIS including enormous copper pans of pralined nuts…”

Painrisien (2013) Dominique Anract et son équipe développent malgré l’ »importance » de leur activité une gamme de produits issus de la panification tout à fait sérieuse. La baguette de tradition aurait pu prendre le nom de cette dame que l’on disait d’une grande intelligence, mais non, elle a conservé sa dénomination habituelle… mais n’a pas manqué d’adopter ces fameuses qualités. Elégante – façonnage appliqué et grignes bien ouvertes -, dorée et craquante, elle sait se parer des meilleurs pour nous séduire.

David Lebovitz (2014) “Slathered between two crunchy meringues is a rich cream filling, precisely thick enough to hold the meringues together. The individual cakes are spread with a whisper-thin layer of cream and encrusted with a blizzard of shaved chocolate. The first time I tasted one, I bought a box to share with a friend. But I made the mistake of tasting one before he arrived (or he made the mistake of being late) and by the time he got there, all that was left were a few crumbs of meringue.”

Lindsey Tramuta (2014) “Unlike most on-trend patisseries that perpetually roll out limited-edition flavors, Mr. Vaucamp keeps his meringues focused, offering a compact but beautifully executed selection of six flavors, from the classic, rolled in dark chocolate, to the more original, like cherry and speculoos (spiced Belgian biscuits).”

David Lebovitz (2011) “Each merveilleux is layers of croquant meringue and lightly sweetened whipped cream, and comes in just three flavors: chocolate, coffee, and speculoos (spiced). I think if Aux Merveilleux de Fred decided to open anywhere else, be it the Marais or Dubuque, Iowa, they would have lines around the block.”

Caroline Mignot (2011) “Certes, c’est sucré, c’est riche, mais finalement assez léger, sorte de nuage de meringue et de crème qui se laisse déguster sans l’ombre d’un remord (surtout le spéculoos).”

Best Baguette (Grand Prix de la Baguette de Tradition Française de la Ville de Paris) 6th place in 2010.

Painrisien (2013) “Les propositions sucrées sont très simples et traditionnelles. Pas de fantaisie côté viennoiseries, parmi lesquelles le croissant manque un peu de vigueur, toutefois rattrapé par la bonne tenue des chaussons aux pommes et pains au chocolat. On se tournera plus volontiers vers les moelleuses brioches et viennoises de la maison. Les pâtisseries présentent quelques reliefs, mais rien de surprenant : un éclair au spéculoos parmi quelques tartes aux fruits, diverses pâtes à choux (religieuses, éclairs)…”

Painrisien (2013) “Pain? Rien de bien intéressant. Les différentes sortes de baguette pourraient offrir un certain choix, mais en réalité, tout cela n’est que très virtuel car la pâte reste la même. Dès lors, les tarifs se justifient difficilement, d’autant plus au vu du caractère aléatoire des cuissons. On retrouve de nombreux petits pains aux graines ou aux fruits secs, quelques pains spéciaux (noix, ciabatta, céréales…) dont les prix s’envolent rapidement et pour lesquels la réalisation reste somme toute très passable.”

Gilles Pudlowski (2010) “Pourtant, la viennoiserie est sèche, et si la baguette de tradition reste craquante et joliment farinée, avec sa mie crémeuse, celle au levain est trop cuite et carrément duraille, Quand à celle aux céréales, blanche et non aérée, elle est fade et inodore.”

Le Figaro (2014) # 7 madeleine in Paris

Travel + Leisure (2012) “Its éclair au chocolat was voted best in the city in 2007, and although Paris is rife with more well known purveyors of macaroons, to bite into a délice des framboises is to understand why this place remains a favorite among famously low-key habitués such as Philippe Starck.”

François Simon (2009) “102 € pour une salade, un millefeuille et deux cappuccinos, avant l’euro, on se serait étranglé de rire en appelant le patron. Bien sûr, beaucoup trop cher, vu la qualité.”
