If I had to pick a pastry, a favorite pastry, a pastry that I would forgo all other pastries for, that pastry would be Gérard Mulot’s cœur frivole. It is a masterpiece, a feat of epic proportions, a winner winner, chicken dinner, if you will. It is the best thing to ever happen to chocolate. Ever.
Milk chocolate mousse, dark chocolate mousse, a chocolate biscuit base all coated with the smoothest, most decadent dark chocolate ganache known to man. The way in which the layers combine to form the perfect balance of not-too-sweet with my-God-I-hope-this-never-ends is mind boggling.
If you like pastries, you will love this. If you don’t like pastries, you will love this. And if you head in for an individual serving and end up with the eight person cake in the window, no one will judge you. We’ve all been there.
Gérard Mulot. 3rd arrondissement.
