Cédric Grolet - La pâtisserie du Meurice
Gifted, prodigy, artist… There is no shortage of words to praise Cédric Grolet, born only in 1985 and already awarded many prizes, including that of World’s Best Pastry Chef at the 2018 Grand Tables du Monde!
A goldsmith of all things sweet, obsessed with the desire for visual perfection and the purity of aromas, the young chef has forged his reputation as a master pastry chef at Le Meurice with Alain Ducasse. In other words, at the pinnacle of French gastronomy…
His signature pastry? Pastries as optical illusions, spectacular likenesses of fruits and nuts including lime, apple and – a real classic – hazelnut, which conceals under its shell a dreamy concoction of ganache, caramel, praline, and almond and hazelnut cream.
These authentic masterpieces are now available in a special boutique, an immaculate minimalist setting where a curated selection of pastries are available every day, to better highlight their extraordinarily precious nature.
