    If anyone knows parisian pastry it's Caroline Mignon, a French food writer for magazines Maison francaise, Prima, Regal, L'Hotellerie-Restauration, Le Monde plus her blog, Table a Decouvert . Her book is just as detailed and informing and advises the best possible choices at each shop. Example on Sebastien Degardin, Mignot says:'Another lovely cake is the Passiflore with it's extra-exotic notes: sitting on a thin coconut shortbread biscuit is a passion fruit cream topped with a very light, white chocolate mousse'. Perfect description.'He was head pastry chef initially at Michel Troisgros' restaurant moving on to Pierre Gagnaire's establishment before opening his own place in the 12th arrondissement. (The diagrammatic drawing above is from the walls of his former shop). At the end of 2013 he moved into and modernized this magnificent location where part of the decoration has been classified by the Monuments Historiques of France.And I won't leave the house in future without My Sweet Paris.150 pastry, ice cream, tea and chocolate shops are covered within.My blog review is here:
