Le Bac Sucré


Le Bac Sucré

Remember when I was living at rue de Varenne? Dangerously way too close to rue du Bac, the street where all temptations are situated almost side by side. La Grande Epicérie, Angelina, Chapon, La pâtisserie des rêves, Jacques Genin, Foucher, Pierre Marcolini to name a few…it was not easy resisting the deliciousness they were displaying in their vitrinas. Luckily I still live in the same area, and whenever I need my dose of sugar I know what street to run to!

With the initiative from the Godfather of pastries, Philippe Conticini La Pâtisserie des Rêves, the Bac Sucré has been invented, six days with tastings, demonstrations and other fun activities around the sweet theme. I was invited to the inauguration on Tuesday evening, where the mayor of the 7th arrondissement, Rachida Dati opened the event officially together with all the pastry chefs. It was a wonderful evening, got to taste pastries, chocolate and other sweets and champagne in the lovely company of Parisbreakfast and Jill who runs the blog Mad About Macarons.

Don’t miss this event, full program can be found by clicking on the link below, the event runs until Sunday 21st June.
