PATISSERIE DES MARTYRS, The Tempting Taste Of Tradition
Tradition is good. Especially in matters of taste. The flavours of the past continuing into the present and given new life for the future. Sébastien Gaudard has delved into the beautiful pages of pastry heritage to find authentic and generous flavours. To the rhythm of the seasons, with whims and memories, this master pastry chef and author reinvents the brightness of yesteryear and revives classic pastries in search of original tastes and contrasting textures. Behind the walls of one of the oldest houses in the 9th district of Paris, the enfant terrible of pastry chefs, who succeeded Pierre Hermé at Fauchon and created, along with designer Claudio Colluci, the Délicabar at Bon Marché, creates his magic. He has conjured the finest desserts and delicacies (a special mention here for Mussipontain, a family recipe) and offers them to his adoring customers. Fairy fingers, nonettes, divine chocolate candy using only the finest cocoa and sugar, French candy balls, marshmallows, calissons, macarons, Tarte au Citron, and bergamot Nancy, from his native region. If you're lucky enough to have the chance to attend one of his workshops, book your place because alongside Sébastien Gaudard, a man truly driven by the desire to share his know-how, both traditional and innovative, you may attain your own pastry supremacy. Or simply treat yourself to the delicious creations of the man who was named Best Pastry Chef by the Pudlo Paris guidebook. JR.
