Top Paris pastry chef opens Nutella patissierie
September 14, 2009
I am of a certain age, which here means that I can remember a time that Nutella was sadly NOT available in US groceries.
I remember stashing jars of the chocolatey, nutty goodness in my suitcase to hold me until my next trip over the pond.
Thank goodness this indignity has been rectified, although I still think the European product far superior to what we mere Nutella newbies get stateside. And technically, US Nutella is manufactured in Canada.
For those of you fortunate enough to find yourselves in Paris, My Little Paris, the insider's guide to La Ville-Lumière or the City of Lights, suggests La pâtisserie des rêves (93 rue du Bac, 7th Metro Rue du Bac or Sèvres Babylone tel : 00 33 1 42 84 00 82) where pastry chef Phillippe Conticini creates the recipes in his cookbook,Sensations Nutella dedicated exclusively to the jar of chocolately, nutty deliciousness.
We can't think of anything more divine.
