Mélodie Asseraf is a modern-day pastry chef who dusts off the universe of sweets with her terrific girly boudoir in Paris.
Her pedigree? She started out with Pierre Hermé and is a native New-Yorker. So it’s not surprising that this talented gal excels in the art of pop cakes (brownie lollipops), mini-donuts and cookies.
a restaurant just like in NYC

The restaurant Beaucoup reminds me think of New-York, by its style and its spirit. It’s an ideal place to come have a drink with the gals or an after-work on Friday night.

my latest girly item
A pretty pink bag that matches my shop, picked up in a little boutique on avenue Victor Hugo by a girlfriend. It’s a super shopping spot.
