Christophe Roussel

During le Jour du Macaron this year we also visited Christophe Roussel, whom I had not had any macarons from before. They were delicious! And so is the shop! Full of colour!

Christophe Roussel

For a summary of Christophe’s career: he started a traditional apprenticeship and quite some interesting experiences such as in Uruguay in a Relais & Château, after that in Switserland in the Casino de Berne, and in Saint Barth with Jean-Marie Rivière (Alcazar, Paradis Latin) where he worked along Laurent Couegnas (Ducasse, Pré Catalan) for some years.

Christophe is also on Facebook!

2013 Jour du Macaron

Where best to celebrate the 8th Jour du Macaron but in Paris! So finally, after a lot of talking and no doing, the Thalys is booked, the Hotel is selected, the patissiers tour selected (participating and non participating), and the girls are ready to go!

Jill Colonna discovered a new address for us in Paris: Christophe Roussel at Montmartre. What a pity that I didn’t know about Christophe a couple of weeks ago.

Oh well…. reason enough for another visit to Paris soon! For now I will just  start with a visit to his webshop!
