If you are in the vicinity of the Musee D'Orsay you must pop by to this amazing artisan pastry store. Located in a beautiful angular  corner position  on the very grand Boulevard St. Germain in the 7th is Gosselin Phillipe.

Gosselin are  Patissier/Boulagere par excellence. They are also listed as a Traiteur which in the local parlance can mean a few things such as  eating house or restaurateur .     Their Pastries are simply works of art.

Take their eclairs as a benchmark for instance .Their chocolate offering is a light choux finger filled with  a firm creamy chocolate delight. When you savour one  it leaves you with that "just right" feeling ( not over indulged) It  rates with Patissier Stroher ( more on Stroher Later - the Queen is a VIP client of Stroher)  and Laduree eclairs. In one word, their Patisserie is fabulous.

And we haven't even talked about their ornate and mouth watering  Chocolate , fruit tartes etc ....etc . In fact the fruit tarts were just so beautiful.

Their skill is also carried over to other Parisian favourites such as meringues.

I really dont know where to stop with the photos from this amazing store - here is another one as you just need to see the excellence. Simply stunning I am still overwhelmed by the store as I write this blog.

One thing that really stuck with us was the amount of baked produce still available in the afternoon. Parisians seem to take the time to enjoy their pastry and have a wonderful selection available to them all day.

As a Patissier and bolulanger this is well worth a visit and a purchase!
