Editorial Reviews

Chicago Sun Times
The book, with a ... map highlighting the shops, attractions and Metro stations ... features recipes for a handful of favorite pastries.
The French Journal
For those of us who don't have Paris in our immediate futures, a few recipes of favorite treats are also included.
Yahoo News
It's hard to imagine anyone would need inspiration for finding sweets on a trip to Paris, but just in case, a new book called Paris by Pastry can help you find some of the city's best treats and bakeries.
Library Journal
Mitchell (Winning the Heart of the College Admissions Dean: An Expert's Advice for Getting into College) gives herself the nom de plume Georgette as she visits the bakeries of Paris with a friend. Mitchell refers to the pair by pseudonyms and in the third person, which immediately sets the tone for this travel/food book, whose unique approach to Paris is as light and airy as the pastries these two women seek. Most of the text is arranged by neighborhood or tourist attraction; entries describe the area, identify a nearby petisserie or boulangerie, and describe the shop's specialties. Recipes are included for several of the treats mentioned. While charming, this book has very limited value as a travel guide, and the sweet-shop listings and recipes can be found in more authoritative sources, such as Patricia Wells's Food Lover's Guide to Paris and Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. An optional purchase for public libraries.-Rita Simmons, Sterling Heights P.L., MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Read an Excerpt

Take the escalator sortie from the metro and you will be right at the door of Gosselim! It is only two blocks from the Musee d'Orsay, where it's best to eat your pastry on the steps watching the artsy street action. The pain aux raisins are a 10+ at 1.80 euro, the mille-feuilles creamy and oozing at 2.10 euro, and if you are planning a picnic lunch on the steps of the Orsay, then consider the sandwiches from this patisserie. The choices are few and the lines are long inside the museum. Unlike the Louvre, the food isn't as well organized at the d'Orsay, according to J et G, and who is more interested in your eating satisfaction while in Paris than Jeanette et Georgette?
