Gerard Mulot is a celebrated pâtissier, chocolatier, and artisan authentique.
Traitor, pâtisserie, boulangerie.
Sweet, savory, and everything inbetween.
A one-stop shop for those who can appreciate a master at his craft.
My hotel in Saint Germain left much to be desired, but it’s location just two blocks from Mulot’s rue de Seine patisserie was raison d’être enough to stay put and deal with the paper-thin walls. There is a reason why Gérard Mulot has become one of the most critically acclaimed pastry chefs in all of Paris; in fact, there seem to be infinite reasons: artful fruit tarts, architecturally stunning cakes and decadent chocolates, and beyond rich fondants. His ready-made gourmet food options (saveurs salées) are not to be overlooked. Mulot gives the otherwise mundane idea of ‘to-go’ and ‘take-out’ a whole new meaning. In fact, one of my favorite meals during my stay was at the petit bar in the rue de Seine shop, watching couples, families, singletons, and children of all ages line up for their baguettes, savory tarts, or simply for their favorite nosh. I couldn’t possibly sample as much as my heart desired, but I highly recommend the oceane salad, made with saumon fume, tomates, pomme de terre, avocat, and aneth (smoked salmon with potatoes, avocado, and herbs), as well as the pistachio creme tart layered with figs (major oh la la), and a raisin roll. Scroll through the photos below… you will imagine my struggles when forced to choose between Mulot’s splendors.
