Reviews of interest

Camille Malmquist (2013) “The chocolate éclair turned out to be a near-perfect example of the typically shoddy work done by apprentices… The kid who filled this one didn’t do it carefully enough, and I got a bite with no filling in it! Although the prices were relatively low – around 3 euros apiece, or a little over half the price of an éclair from Fauchon or La Pâtisserie des Rêves – I probably won’t be back to Laurent Duchêne for the éclairs.”

Sugared n Spiced (2012) “The croissants at Laurent Duchêne are indeed delicious, but I wouldn’t trek across Paris just for them.”


Free Macarons on March 20

Here’s a sweet idea for those in Paris next Tuesday, March 20: grab a cookie and help to celebrate the Jour du Macaron. This annual fête for the quintessential French cookie will find Paris pastry chefs giving away free macarons and collecting donations for Autistes Sans Frontières. The shops that we’ve plotted on this map and listed below will all handing out complimentary macs. Two of them, Pierre Hermé and Jean-Paul Hévin, were just ranked among our all-time favorite Five Great for Macarons.
