As I’m leaving Paris the pastry wonderland soon (direction Shanghai), I’ve been hopping around eating even more pastries than I already do…and for the first time during my three years in Paris, I tried pâtisseries from Cyril Lignac. The celebrity chef has two pastry boutiques in Paris, with production headed by chef Benoit Couvrand. Let’s see what they’ve got for us.

Equinoxe (€5.50), composed of light bourbon vanilla cream, salted butter caramel and crispy praline with speculoos. I’m not a fan of the grey look and the bourbon vanilla cream is quite a bit too heavy for me, but I can see this being a popular one for those who enjoy rich flavors and textures.

Tarte Citron (€5.50): nut-flavored shortbread with lemon cream, white chocolate decoration. This tart is beautifully designed,  with a surprise of lemon compote hidden inside the lemon cream. Like.

Happy to finally have tried La Pâtisserie Cyril Lignac. Not my favorite pastry shop in town, though if I were living in these neighborhoods I could see myself getting sweet things from here from time to time.
