I didn’t know about Sébastien Dégardin until I read the latest Fou de Patisserie magazine, where I found out that this ex-pastry chef from the legendary Troisgros now runs his own pastry boutique in Paris 5eme near the Pantheon. Where have I been?!

So I went straight away to sample a few pastry creations from the chef, starting with Mara (€5.50), composed of a dacquoise with almonds, light vanilla cream, and red fruit compote, all wrapped around by a soft biscuit, then topped with hazelnut streusel and fresh fig.

The pastries I had chosen from Sébastien Dégardin were fine. They made a good ending to my picnic dinner with friends, though we weren’t really blown away by what we tasted. That said, it does show that this pastry chef puts a lot of thoughts into what he does, as his pastries – while moderately priced – are more creative and intricate than what you can find in typical pastry shops. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, do drop by and take a look.
