Fou de Pâtisserie: Sweet Treats from Éclair de Génie, Pierre Hermé & More

Fou de Patisserie: Paris' Top Concept Store for Pastries and Sweets

Next time your afternoon sugar craving hits, head straight to Fou de Pâtisserie in the center of Paris, where the city’s finest pâtissiers deliver their signature creations fresh daily.

It wasn’t long after Parisians Muriel Tallandier and Julie Mathieu launched the bi-monthly Fou de Pâtisserie magazine that they dreamed of opening a store in its image, to celebrate the people and art they work closely with and admire.

The tiny concept store is the first of its kind, carrying cakes and tarts by resident chefs Christophe Adam (Éclair de Génie), Philippe Conticini (Pâtisserie des Rêves), Cyril Lignac, and others, all in one place. Shelves are conveniently stocked with sachets of Jacques Genin’s renowned pâtes de fruits, Pierre Hermé macarons, and guimauves fraîches (marshmallows) by Gilles Marchal to grab on the go. Featured talent, pastries, and themes are set to change each month. May’s focus was fruits rouges, in celebration of spring.

As a resident of the 2ème, I am personally happy to welcome Fou de Pâtisserie to the neighborhood; one in a recent wave of creative, new businesses (Nose, Hôtel Bachaumont, Miss Banh Mi, AveK) that have settled in among the centuries-old butchers, grocers, and bistrots of the pedestrian rue Montorgueil, re-energizing the quartier.

As Fou de Pâtisserie magazine showcases the best of France’s pâtisserie scene – from news stories and profiles to recipes sourced directly from top chefs – the boutique, and its busy location steps from Châtelet, allows readers, locals, and visitors easy access to France’s legendary pastry leaders, trends, and treats.
