Today, I'm taking you to the oldest pastry shop in Paris: the Stohrer pastry shop, rue Montorgueil, in the 2nd arrondissement. A place that is part of history, therefore, but also a true ode to gluttony that begins in the window ...
Have you ever eaten a croissant at Cedric Grolet? Well, it's a unique culinary experience to try out urgently if you like French pastries. Just seeing this super-thin multi-layered puff pastry makes you want to bite into it at the sight of it. The same is true for all other pastries, and for good reason: Cedric Grolet was voted best pastry chef in the world !
