In the midst of a wildly modern dessert culture, patisseries such as Thierry (@thierrychocolat) maintain true to tradition. On a good day, renowned Pastry Chef Thierry Busset can be seen working in his open atelier. The romanticism of Paris is captured from the rainbows of macarons to the fresh smell of cakes out of the oven in immaculate splendor. The café is representative of upper class higher living, where the suited, dressed, and proper gather for idle chat. There is an air of elegance that only a true chocolatier can bring in the quality of the fine details that line each piece.
As for the assortment of seasonal cakes, there’s always impact in the tarte of the berries and the lightness of the cream. From passionfruit to raspberry, each cake is handcrafted as a single piece of wonder. Some offer a fleeting moment of pleasantry while others reinforce the palette with the signature dark chocolates from the chocolatier’s kitchen. The thought that the menu changes with time gives the feeling of surprise because as your favourite cake returns to the recipe books, a new favourite cake appears to tell another story for another day. This secret is how this traditional French café prevails in being contemporary.
