On our last day in Paris, we wet back to Montmartre, had lunch at Gontran Cherrier, and went for dessert at Pâtisserie Arnaud Larher. Once I was inside this shop, I was completely enthralled with the myriad of choices. Verrines, eclairs, chocolates, spheres, candies, and macarons. Just to name a few. We made our selections and scurried off to find a quiet place to sit and savor.
Here’s a salted caramel St. Honore. I haven’t had one of these in a very long time. One bite of the thin, crisp caramel, rich puff pastry and caramel cream and I couldn’t believe I’ve missed out on this for so long.
The Regale was a praline sphere of hazelnut speckled chocolate shell, praline inside, and hazelnut buttercream atop a dacquiose square. This was definitely my favorite of the three items we came away with. I just love praline and this was all that hope it would be.
Of course I had to get a few macarons. I was feeling adventurous this day, so from left to right, here they are: absinthe, hazelnut, and mango/orange.
It was now time for a walk to work up an appetite for more desserts. We came across this bronze sculpture the a small courtyard. Not sure who he is, but he sure looks cool.
