Everything they touch turns into baking ecstasy. The reconversion is good for Jean-François Bandet and Magali Szekula including zebra breads, babkas, flans and pastries. Virtuosos of chou dough, their last baby coming out this Saturday is Paris - New York: a Paris-Brest revisited with light pecan cream garnished with a praline heart.

They are very beautiful, very round. Popelini's Insta-friendly cabbages would be worthy of feature in Coppola's Marie-Antoinette . With a good consistency, they do not drip when you bite into them and are therefore eaten while keeping control over their dignity. However, we regret the whole a little too sweet and tastes less natural than its competitors. The classic flavors (salted butter caramel, vanilla, dark chocolate, praline, lemon, pistachio, coffee and rose-raspberry) are currently inviting Passion fruit, gianduja nougat, coconut-praline and galette des Kings.
