Hugo&Victor : high patisserie in Paris !

You know I’m a sweet teeth and I’ve discovered recently in my district  a new fantastic patisserie called “Hugo&Victor”(7 rue Gomboust 75001). It looks like a jewellery boutique but you can eat all the creations ! The chef, Hugues Pouget, had worked formely  for famous french chef Guy Savoy-so you can figure out the high level you find there.With Sylvain Blanc, his friend,  they decided to open a new kind of shop : the idea was to propose patisserie you have in a gastronomic restaurant as take away. And that’s a success : they opened one year ago the first shop in 7th district  and last december they open the one I’m talking about in the first district. They have  also now a corner in big department store Printemps.

The chef is working with traditional tastes like chocolate, vanilla and caramel on one hand-revisiting traditional “eclairs” , “choux” and chocolate tarts for example-  and more innovative or excentric tastes on the other hand, such as combawa (in green below)slightly tangy with a delicate lemongrass perfume,  or lychee (the best dessert I’ve ever eaten, definitly my favorite !)…

I do recommend also the little “financiers” (especially the one with cherries) elected the best in Paris by ‘Le Figaro”-a famous french newspaper-and I do confirm !

And if you want an original gift : their chocolate boxes look like a book …very ParisDeluxe&Arty indeed !
