Paris Pastries: Stohrer & Maison Collet

Bonjour mes amis!

Today I'm showing you two great pâtisseries that are near my apartment.

First, the legendary Stohrer, which has been around since 1725.
Nicolas Stohrer was the royal pâtissier of King Louis XV.
Louis XV's favorite recipes were puits d'amour and baba au rhum.

I bought myself (since I am an avid rum-lover) a baba au rhum, brioche soaked with rum.

The shop was closed till August 15th.

And on the 17th, people were drooling again over the window display.

Stohrer doesn't sell just sweets, they also have a variety of salades, salmon
and quiche, among others.

Then, my local favorite has got to be Boulangerie - Pâtisserie Maison Collet.
The prices are low, food is great and the staff is very friendly.

While Maison Collet's brioche au sucre is fantastic, their croissants are perfection!

I can't imagine how much I will miss having these great pâtisseries when my
holiday ends. But for now, I will enjoy and appreciate them for being so nearby
and having such delicious pastries!


Au Revoir,

Daniëlle
