Sébastien Gaudard

Pigalle’s sweet success

Within just a sprinkling of years, Sebastien Gaudard’s traditional creations have earned him a place at the top of the capital’s pâtissier A-list. “French cuisine’s got a long history of sweets and desserts, and I love dipping into that to create my own recipes,”explains Gaudard, whose store is located on Rue des Martyrs. “I took over a family business because I really like the idea of passing things on to the next generation. I also chose this neighbourhood because there are lots of food professionals here.”Gaudard will supply croissants to Le Pigalle, plus desserts of the day and sweet snacks for the mini bar such as chocolate bars and toffee. “I like the idea of going behind closed doors, being the delicacy that makes you feel good, that feeds an urge. I’m like a sugar dealer: I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that sugar gives you a sort of legal high.”
