Hugues Pouget cut his teeth in the kitchens of some of the city's biggest restaurants and hotels – Le Bristol, Guy Savoy and the Il Palazzo (where he created an all chocolate buffet) – before opening his own boutique with his childhood friend, marketing specialist Sylvain Blanc. Against the shop’s muted décor, the lively colours of the seasonal patisseries stand out: the citrus tart in winter, all oranges and greens, almost looks better than it tastes. A solid range of classics (millefeuilles, éclairs – you name it), each with its matching wine, completes the picture.
