What an experience it is!
|From the first glimpse outside|
|It's totally elegant and beautiful|
|everything is displayed like fine works of art- which indeed they are|
|So much to try|
|The pate des fruits (fruit jellies) glisten like jewels|
and there are some rather unexpected flavours
|Not all that is red is berry!|
|The Mangue Passion of legend|
|All too soon it is time to leave|
And what of the caramels? I've only eaten a few of my stash, but they are indeed divine. The Mangue Passion (Mango/Passionfruit) and Caramel Beurre Sale (Salted Butter Caramel) are incredible. The joy of the pate des fruits still awaits.
Rather stupidly I didn't buy any of his chocolates on this visit. Thankfully they give you a tiny sachet with two chocolates to try. That milk caramel will stand up as one of the gustatory highlights of the trip I think. The dark chocolate mint has an incredibly intense mint flavour, and was a bit too much for me.
And now I think I need a caramel for breakfast....
27 Rue de Varenne
I am unable to type properly and wipe thr drool off my keyboard at the same time!
I love this store-and the location is so much better than the one in the Marais.
Brona- definitely one for your Paris to do list. JG is definitely my current favourite.
Esme- we went to the Marais Salon de The yesterday, and I am now in love with JG. Yes it's out of the way, but OMG, so amazing. The Rue de Bac location is super handy though.
Oh my! Could you please just move to Paris, Louise, and post from there every day? Lol
I'd be more than happy to Deb! Just trying to work out a way.....
This shop would be perfect for my mother, who loves jelly candy and caramels. Of course, I'd probably try a few things too. Great post with terrific pictures. Thanks for playing along with Dreaming of France. I'm still playing catch up.
