The Ritz Chalet de Noël - Chef Francois Perret

Wednesday I took Bear to THE HOTEL RITZ' new Chalet de Noël at Place Vendôme. You have until 5 January.
We got the'So Ritzy' formule - a hot chocolate + pastry (an apfelstrudel 15€) which Bear gobbled up instantly.
Meet the genius behind this Ritzy creation, FRANÇOIS PERRET just awarded Meilleur Patissier du Monde in October. Plus he has published his first pastry book, Instants Sucres,

I first introduced you to Chef Perret in 2014 making pastry magic  at HOTEL SHANGRI-LA 
And next in 2016 when Perret moved to The Ritz and opened the divine Salon Proust.  
If lines are long at the Chalet
Casually waltz inside the hotel, whilst humming, 'Putting on the Ritz'. You can order the same fare at the bar by the way. 
FYI The Ritz staff takes kindly to interlopers and browsers unlike some other 5-star Palace hotels.
Head back to the concept gift shop.
Enroute step outside into the beautifully-lit courtyard.
If you need some holiday fancy dress there's plenty in the shop.
You may be lucky and catch François signing his new book. Check François' instagram for shop signings and his latest creations. His book will be out in the US in April 2020. Stay tuned - next up Paris Christmas windows.Thanks for reading PB. 🎁 Gift yourself and others Parisbreakfast letters 💌, maps and watercolors🎨 in my Etsy shop. Xxx❤️Bear 🐻 is eating cabbage soup for a bit instead of pastries...

Noelle said...

Thanks for sharing! This is terrific. How’s it going with the strike.
Do you think it will end or dial down by mid-January.
It looks like moving to Paris was the right choice for you.

Parisbreakfasts said...

Thanks Noelle
Moving to Paris was the best thing I've ever done...that I can think of.
The strike? One manages. If only the bikers/scooters would not try so hard to murder us pedestrians. C'est la vie ❤️

Your blog shows what a brilliant job Paris does at presenting itself for Christmas. Or anyway, you have picked out some great stuff,with your inimitable linking text.

I am enjoying your Ritz Christmas pictures! While Tasmania is a fabulous place, I do miss the lights and Christmas decorations. It is hard to believe it is even Christmas!
