Posted on 04/05/21

Voted Best Pastry Chef in the World in 2018, Cédric Grolet, pastry chef at the hotel Le Meurice, continues to be talked about!

After seducing the Palace with his tea time, he opened his bakery and pastry shop on avenue de l'Opéra. The famous trompe-l'oeil fruits, the Rubik's Cube or even the bouquet-shaped pies, that's him! So many signature desserts that have made its reputation. He seduces his audience by staging his creations on Instagram, an account that brings together more than 1.4 million followers! Bold, creative and demanding, he is today a major star on the international scene.


For the record, he landed in Paris in 2006 and first worked at Fauchon as a baker and specialist in macaroons, two sectors which did not fascinate him much. He was quickly spotted by chefs Christophe Adam and Benoît Couvrand, who gave him the brand's research and development position in Beijing. Five years later, he was hired as sous-chef in Alain Ducasse's two-star restaurant in Le Meurice, then as pastry chef. Very quickly, his creations, as pretty as they are tasty, quickly go viral and are propelled at high speed on social networks.

To celebrate the three years of his shop in Le Meurice, Cédric Grolet has created an ephemeral collection bringing together his 32 creations of sculpted fruits. On May 21, 22 and 23, for a weekend, Cédric Grolet will be offering all of his cult creations for sale.



You can find its famous hazelnut, rice pudding (a novelty this season), ultra fresh lychee, peanuts stuffed with praline and caramel, mango, lime and yellow lemons and many more ...



Pre-orders are now open until May 14 for a Click & Collect pickup in Meurice to skip the line.



A pleasure for the eyes like taste buds guaranteed !

Today we're highlighting an exciting place full of history: La Villa Cavrois. We are looking forward to its reopening so that you can discover this unique place! History of a must-see modernist architecture of the 20th century: Designed between 1929 and 1932 by the architect Mallet-Stevens, the Villa Cavrois was created at the request of Paul Cavrois, a Roubaix textile industrialist who acquired land in Croix, on the outskirts of Roubaix. He wanted to build a villa to house his family. At first, he called on the architect Jacques Gréber, who specialised in urban design, who proposed a house in the "neo-regionalist" style. But this did not work out, as he preferred to entrust the project to the avant-garde architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, after having visited one of his creations, the rue Mallet-Stevens in the 16th arrondissement of Paris.Seduced by the prospect of the healthy, comfortable and modern living environment proposed by the architect, Paul and Lucie Cavrois gave him complete freedom to design their family home. The architect did not hesitate to make it an unusual home that would require three years of work. The Villa is remarkable with its 2400 m2 of living space, 6 m high ceilings, 1000 m2 of terraces on three floors. He selected noble materials such as marble or mahogany for a refined and modern decoration with furniture of optimal comfort. The Villa will be inaugurated on the occasion of the wedding of one of the couple's daughters, Geneviève. The history of the Villa Cavrois took a completely different turn during the Second World War, when the Cavrois family was forced to desert and the Germans turned it into a barracks on 28 May 1940. At the liberation, the French army requisitioned it. Despite the deterioration due to military use, the furniture was preserved. It was not until January 1947 that the Cavrois family returned to their home and decided to call on the architect Pierre Barbe for the interior design. The family stayed there until 1985, when Lucie Cavrois died. The furniture was dispersed and the villa was bought to build a housing estate. Despite being classified as a historical monument since 1990, the house is in a state of disrepair. In 1996, a support committee composed of thirty-three architects was created to raise public awareness. It was not until 2001 that the State bought the Villa Cavrois and the central part of the park, and seven years later renovation work began. It was decided to restore the villa identically to the 1932 plan. It was not until 2015 that the work was completed and the villa reopened to the public. We propose you a small video for an immersion in this historical place! Source photo :https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Villa_Cavrois Video source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qw6lnOjbUrM

"C'est un projet de rêve pour un créateur comme moi, qui cultive une fascination pour l'aviation et l'exploration spatiale, explique Philippe Starck. J'aimerais créer une sorte de nid confortable aux murs soyeux conçu en harmonie avec les mouvements du corps dans un espace sans gravité." Le designer propose une décoration luxueuse, modulaire et lumineuse pour les visiteurs qui auront chacun leur propre cabine. Les hublots, quant à eux, offriront une vue imprenable sur la Terre. De quoi admirer les continents et les océans confortablement depuis sa cabine ! En effet, la société Axiom a prévu dès 2020 de prendre possession de la Station Spatiale Internationale. Amener des touristes et des fans de science-fiction dans l’espace, en orbite, situé à 408 kilomètres de la Terre : un rêve qui devient réalité.
