The Fauchon shop provides delicacies from all over France and the
world for that matter, and is divided into different sections with a section for items
such as preserves and exotic canned goods, another for breads, pastries and chocolates and
another for items such as cheese, pate and terrines.
Situated in the 8th Arrondissement of Paris behind
the Madeleine church just a few minutes walk to the West from the Opera, they also have a
restaurant and a tea salon where they are
able to showcase the incredible talents of the pastry chefs, but as you have probably
gathered by now, this is not a cheap place to pop in to.
However, with this restaurant in Paris only
seating 30 people at a time in a very chic and plush setting, there are always people
making reservations to experience the exquisite compositions of their finest pastries,
along with other delights such as pates, sausages, cakes and even cooked meals.
