Among the big family of the great addresses that made the fame of the gourmet side of Paris, Cédric Grolet at Le Meurice has recently been named world’ best pastry chef in a restaurant in October 2017 during the Grandes Tables du Monde gala.
If Le Dali tea salon is often complete at tea time, many visitors are moved to take away and enjoy pastries in the parks or share them at home, but it’s not yet possible.
No problem! Le Meurice saw the asset of having a star pastry chef and will transform a former meeting room into a store open onto rue de Castiglione, perfect to shop your favorite pastry between two errands.
All day long, Cédric Grolet's team will rule the pastry store: assembly and cooking desserts in the window, baking kugelhopf (served from 5 p.m. for teatime), mini-tasting sessions, Le Meurice really wanted to make this store the standard bearer of French love of good food.
Sculpted fruits, éclairs, Paris-Brest, we can already say that the counter will compete with Angelina, and you’re likely to find there fulfilling or sweet cravings! The opening is planned this Tuesday March 20 at lunchtime for the foodies you are, let's be patient, now!
And it's not all, you can also pick up family cake that made the fame of the chef: Saint-Honoré, Apple Pie, Rubik's Cube, finally! We can share all these delights on Sunday lunchs. The only flaw, cakes are to be reserved 48 hours prior and you can't go to the store to try and have one.
This opening, on Tuesday March 20 at lunchtime, the chef pleased foodies from all over the world, signing his book about sculpted fruits, taking pictures and thanking his fans from the very beginning (while we should be the ones thanking him!). And emotional moment, his team has been given pride of place, goint out on the street to mingle with the crowd, these people who are always working their magic in the shadow.
