A Weekend with Pâtisserie All-Stars
A Parisian weekend with the crème de la crème of the dessert world.
Those who have a sweet tooth – and are lucky enough to be in the French capital this weekend – are in for a treat. In a delectable one-off, this 8th and 9th of June, the desserts of Cédric Grolet - from Alain Ducasse’s Michelin-starred gourmet restaurant Le Meurice - will be available for takeaway by the public via pop-up shop in the 1eme.
If you love pastry, you will have heard of Grolet - the young dessert fusion chef, head pâtissier at Le Meurice – and recently named ‘The World’s Best Pastry Chef’ at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Ceremony 2018.
This is your chance to taste some of his creations on the go.
This gastronomic event du jour will see a selection of sweet treats made available for takeaway from a former meeting room transformed into a store open onto the rue de Castiglione; with each delicacy made-to-order and from scratch by the team of Ducasse and Grolet as you watch the magic happen right in front of you from the open kitchen.
The five fantastical recipes which will be up for grabs on this occasion are the following:
Chocolate & cocoa from the Manufacture of Alain Ducasse
Coconut & pepper crowns
Roasted strawberries, oats & basil
Tangy lemon tangy & tequila sorbet with marjoram
Kopi Luwak coffee, crispy gavotte
It goes without saying – but it’s first in, first served – so get there at noon, before there’s a crowd, to make sure you don’t miss out!

They have often made this strange and penetrating dream .... An elegant, charming and cultured gentleman who knew how to make himself available every day and often very late at night… A gentleman who worked, exhibited, cooked, sang and sometimes even danced ...
To step into this iconic restaurant through the Gare de Lyon is to enter a place where time stops; where diners are taken on an incredible gastronomic journey of discovery through the most beautiful regions in France, and where the décor is just as magnificent as the food.
For two nights only — on June 28th and July 19th, 2019 — Cucina Mutualité, the Italian masterpiece of famous Parisian chef Alain Ducasse, will open up its rooftop for the exclusive culinary pop-up event of the season.
This hidden speakeasy – promoted simultaneously as a place for “Café, Cocktails and Pyjamas” – is hands-down one of the most poetic (and unique) bars in Paris, tucked away into a chic nook at the beautiful Place des Vosges — the oldest square in Paris.
