Aux Merveilles de Fred, Baba Pierre Herme

 Word out!
Whipped cream/Chantilly is very IN in Paris.
The chateau de Chantilly is another matter.
 According to Peter's Paris it is everywhere on top of everything. Peter is a 'Paris Greeter' and in the know.
We walzed through the 16th - rue de Passy et voila.
 Aux Merveilles de Fred (the center of the whipped cream universe)
 29, rue de l’Annonciation 75016
Toute est creme et meringue
 Peter bought a gateaux covered in chocolate flakes.
Whipped cream of course.
 I LOVED the adorable graphics + wall mural (not being a whipped cream fanatic).
 Pierre Herme has embraced whipped cream passionately on a classic baba.
 Mon Dieu!
 I looked and admired.
I resisted. But I have until 29 April to succumb.
Who could resist this splendor?
Try out Paris Greeters next visit too.

No resisting whatsoever... it's not good for you! xv

Jules said...

It's always been in as far as I am concerned!!!!!

Jojo said...

All of the pastries and baked goods are pure art...with or without chantilly!

Sabrine d'Aubergine said...

It was like being there, with you...


Kikka N said...

I think it might be a good idea to have a piece/taste of everything while you are there !

Sue said...

Being a whipped cream fanatic, myself, I'd be fine with all that fluffy good stuff. Mmmmmmm

Connie said...

I say,"Bring it on!" There is just not enough whipped cream in life!

Parisbreakfasts said...

I think you are correct.
Like it says in Bringing Up Bebe,
French kids must take at least one bite of their spinach etc.
Same goes for whipped creme concoctions.

Nikon said...

I'm not a big whipped cream fan, either, but those pastries sure look good.
I like the chocolate colored whipped cream..

Paris Rendez-vous and Beyond said...

French whipped cream is as light as air...and usually flavoured with some fab I wouldn't resist......

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

I love whip cream.. All these are pretty yummy looking. :)

Jeanette, Mistress of Longears said...

Is it too late to begin to behave like un bebe? As far as having to eat one bite of everything? :-)

Joyfulartist said...

But who can stop at one bite?

Frances said...

Carol, it's such fun following your explorations!

I first encountered the word chantilly ages ago on a visit to Brittany. It was part of a description of a dessert. I ordered that desset and quickly knew that I'd made a good choice.

xo to you and Bear.

Geri, NJ said...

Oh Yum! No doubt they would be absolutely horrified at our Cool Whip! When I was a kid I loved Charlotte Russe...very whipped creamy treat...never see that, at least.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Oh, Holly and I tried a sampling of three in January and I will be back this week with my nose pressed to the glass, waiting my turn in line. So, my pâtissière, have you tried making any of these?


Parisbreakfasts said...

I can paint them.
I can eat them.
I can NOT make them!! :)

Bill said...

Whipped cream is the nectar of the gods! Who are we to disagree?
