The delicious old-fashioned pastry shop on rue 8 Rue de l'École de Médecine, is called Pâtisserie Viennoise! Last year I brought a container and got three flan parisians to takeout since I was staying in the 14th w/a friend. I usually stay in a studio rental, steps from the shop. I like their apple pie too. Now I'll have to try the Landemaine flan this year. I have fond memories of eating an almond croissant from La Grande Epicerie that felt like it weighted a pound! Hope you had a safe flight back from LA. From the Oak/Berk area.
What a great show!
I was puzzled by the chocolate croissant aux amandes. Then I saw the picture: a pain au chocolat! Now that makes sense. Miam!
Can’t find way to access podcast.
I love Phil's blog site and was thrilled that he visited Portland. What a treat for David and Phil to get together. I appreciated the tips on pastry in Paris/France. When I spent some time in France at the end of summer, all I could find in the area I was in were canelés, which I am not fond of. I did sample one small one filled with ganache that was good. If you are ever in Bordeaux, do not pass up the kouign amann at the Maison Georges. It is the best pastry I have ever eaten. It doesn't look like much, but when you bite into those payers of buttery goodness with just the right amount of sweetness you will be transported to pastry paradise.
We are huge Phil Rosenthal fans Chez Maynard. Enjoyed this conversation so much.
Really Enjoyed - Thanks
Haven’t heard the podcast yet, but I recognize the chocolate almond croissant. We’ve been in Paris now for about 36 hours and have ready consumed one of those, nearly an entire loaf of pain aux céréales, 3/4 of a thing of butter and quite a lot Comte. I think it’s all good for jet lag?
My 2 favorite food people. Would love to eat and chat with you both❤️
Thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. Phil is always a delight & fun
I would like to have a transcription of the podcast. Is that possible?
So much fun! But isn't Phil on a book tour right now...?
Two of my most favorite guys in all the land!! 💜👏 👏
I had a gourmand houseguest last fall. He discovered the croissant amandes at my boulangerie and started setting his alarm for 07h30 every morning because they sell out by 08h00. I had to evict him after a three day stay turned into 3 weeks. I blame the croissants.
