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 !
