The beautiful and magnificent Saint-Honoré

I’m no stranger to the Saint-Honoré. What pastry-chasing, sugar-addicted Sweet Freak in Paris could claim to be? But Louis has pulled one on me: I have never even heard of Des Gateaux et du Pain, one of the handful of patisseries in this new plug for the City Guide Paris.

Of course I’ve been to Ladurée and La Patisserie des Reves. Of course I’ve pawed at more than a few Lenotre vitrines. But Des Gateaux et du Pain? Sounds like a field trip to the 15eme is in my immediate future.

What a cool video! How on earth did you find this? I love the quality, everything seems pastel and vintage and magical which is perfect when presenting those amazing pastries. I agree that the Gateaux et du Pain looks amazing, but I really think the rectangle Paris Brest takes the cake (excuse my pun) :)

This is such a strange video! I never really considered Contici's creations "over the top", but I guess they are for Louis Vuitton! I was just about to stop by the Danette bar in the 1st but might have to swing by a pastry shop for a little something now, I'm hungry!

Very witty indeed, though he forgot all about the gateau l'opera inspired by the l'Opera Garnier.
I'm sure there are others he forgot as well...
Must do some sleuthing
Very fun animation.

that video was annoyingly too creative! but interesting you should mention the Saint-Honoré, as Pierre Hermé has (too) also released his (chocolate) version for up coming Autumn Winter 2010/11.

it's battle of the gâteaux...

I love the video, too. And it kills me as I work on LV that I had NOTHING to do with it! I mean, can you imagine? Creating fun videos about Parisian pastries? It's what I was born to do - that and eat them. At least I've got the eating part down...

Having the 'eating part' down is terribly important!
Don't put it down Sweetie :)
They made a BIG mistake not asking for your expert imput.
I would let them know if I was you..
Are you watching Mad Men for tips on women in the corporate world?
The gateaux l'opera was NOT included!
Quite an oversight IMHO
