Michalak, his new shop in Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Since the beginning of October, a new shop has appeared in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Michalak, former pastry chef at the Plaza Athénée, opened his third shop in Paris. The Madison Hotel makes you discover its new address for aficionados of cakes.

It’s in this shop in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, that you will find all the specialties that make the reputation of Michalak such as the KLASSIK and its mille-feuille vanilla tonka caramel, the paris-brest, the lemon tart Yuzu-meringuée or the new Zuccoto made with creamy milk chocolate, mousse sabayon mascarpone coffee and caramel. A delight!

In solo, you can taste the pastries KOSMIKS. These pastries are sold individually, in verrines to facilitate tasting. You will find many different recipes every day like the Kosmik cookie, chocolate mousse praliné hazel or the pear tatin caramel.

Young and old alike will also be seduced by KALIN, a duo of marshmallows in the form of bears, covered with a thin layer of chocolate. Also in the shop of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, you will again be able to appreciate one of the signatures of the chef, the Miss K, a cream puff with salted caramel. A real treat !

Finally for the Christmas period, the pastry chef rock n 'roll has surpassed us and has prepared some stunning Christmas logs such as IconIk, the log of 2016, whose shape recalls a Volkswagen van and implies that the Santa can also go to Hawaii during Christmas! A small wonder made up of a chewy biscuit pecan nuts and a mousse of maple syrup and jam raspberry-blueberry.


And for those who do not know him, Michalak, is a creator of flavors who wins his spurs in big houses such as Fauchon, Pierre Hermé or even Ladurée. He, then, worked at the Plaza Athénée in Paris for 6 years from 2010 to 2016 where he developed his creative spirit. He won with the French team the world cup of pastry, in 2005.

Since then, he has been known by the public for his participation as a juror in television programs on the theme of pastry.

In 2013, he launched his first boutique in Paris and began the "success story" as Michalak opened his third shop in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
