Christmas log 2013 is a fabulous way to experience French cuisine
France is famous for its food. Nothing is more French than the greatest bakeries, the pâtisseries that form such an important part of French culture. What better way to explore some of the finest baking in the world, than to find your Christmas log for this festive season from the best that Paris can offer?
Joséphine Vannier, who has her store in the third arrondissement, is an artisan chocolatier. Her creations are designed to surprise and challenge your expectations of what chocolate can do. Joséphine's pieces are as much works of art as they are sweets!
At a long-established store in the fourth arrondissement, now run by Francois Pralus, the Pralus family have been making their signature Praluline since the 1940s. This delectable pastry is for everyone with a sweet tooth, and you will leave with a package full of delights.
Try the Paris branch of Pierre Hermé, nearby, for a designer chocolate log that you can take home for the festive season. If, that is, you're not tempted to eat yours before you leave Paris. Take a trip to the eleventh arrondissement for the mouth-watering pastries created by Cyril Lignac and his team. This store has become a must-visit destination for foodies.
There's more, much more. Perhaps your choice will be Lenôtre, in Place de la Bastille, just down the road from Hotel Marais Bastille, where their creations count as haute cuisine.
