High Fauchon

08/20/2008

No this is not a Parisian shoe salon. It’s Fauchon, a luxury food shop on Paris’ Place de la Madeleine in the 8e arrondissement.

Founded in 1886 by Auguste Fauchon, the pâtisserie / boulangerie serves up delicacies that are as much a treat for the eye as for the palate. Yes, those are gold bakery walls. And yes, the bread is monogrammed.

Of course.

Also check out the magnificent Éclairs in perfect little rows below. This is pink gastronomic perfection. Their New York outpost closed a few years ago.

Of course.

Visit Fauchon HERE.
