Eating in Paris: Patisseries

Pastry-making is an art-form in Paris, and one that is celebrated --and indulged in -- everywhere. When I dream of Paris, I don't think of just the lovely buildings and monuments, but the trays and trays of beautiful, decadent pastries like these.

Featured here are two specialities of the holiday season: buches de noel, mousse-filled sponge cake, a popular Christmas dessert, and gallettes des rois. We call them "king cakes" in this part of the world.
