Pastries in the park, two of my favorite things in Paris put together. And there’s no waiting! Got to seize these last few days of lingering warmth before the winter cold envelops this city.

So why not go to your favorite park with a few pretty things from your favorite patisserie? For this particular afternoon, a friend and I settled somewhere near the Invalids with a box of Mori Yoshida.

Figs is now in season, and all pastry shops are out with their own interpretations of this autumn fruit. Here’s Mori Yoshida’s Solliès (€4.80), macarons sandwiching caramel mousseline cream, fig confiture, and fresh figs. A lovely thing to look at, but the combination of caramel with figs is a bit too sweet for my personal taste.

On another hand, I quite liked the baba au caramel poire (€5.20), which was quite surprising because I’m usually not a fan of baba at all (even Pierre Herme’s Fetish Baba didn’t win my heart). This particular baba is soaked in caramel syrup and paired with caramel pastry cream, chantilly cream, fresh pears, and a pipette of rum. Perhaps I enjoyed it because I could control the amount of alcohol, and I also really loved the pears, whose fresh fragrance does wonders at counterbalancing the caramel.

Beige, I shan’t talk about this any more after having praised it so in a previous post.

Here are two more things I tasted on an earlier occasion – duo saint-honoré aux marron et chocolat (€5.80) and tarte aux fruits rouges (€5.30), but I have to admit that I don’t remember too much about either one…it’s been over a month ago! Just thought I’d show you their pretty faces.

Et voilà, that’s it for now. Now do as I say – seize the day and go eat pastries in the park.
