I’ve never been a pie nut, but things might change here in Paris.
A colleague who lives in Montmartre told me about Les Petits Mitrons. Since he had also told me about Coquelicot, and mentions Pierre Hermé on a weekly basis, I knew he knew what he was talking about.
There’s certainly no shortage of options at this cute little patisserie: chocolate-walnut, chocolate-pear, apple-pear, straight up chocolate, straight up apple, apricot, peach, rhubarb, fig, fruits-rouges (mixed berries), strawberry-cream, mixed fruit…
and that’s just at this one place. If I get hooked on pie now, there’s no telling what more I will discover.
I figured I had to start with the classic and got une piéce of the apple. God, was it delicious. Not only were the apples fresh and bright-tasting, but the crust was beautifully sweet and moist. Bravo, Francais!
