Parisians know that a perfect "pain au chocolat" or wild strawberry tart is among life's greatest pleasures. But which "patisserie" has the most intensely flavored "macarons," the most sophisticated chocolates, or a croissant that is truly beyond compare? In the pages of "The Patisseries of Paris," you'll find the most enticing "s"weets in Pairs. You'll discover what time of day Parisians in the know get items as they come out of the oven, the museums with the most stylish cafes, and other charming spots for light meals. This is the essential guide for anyone who wants to experience French culture, bite by delicious bite.
