Aux Merveilleux de Fred

I don’t know who Fred is…or how merveilleux (marvelous) he is…but his damn pastries are!

I don’t think this is Fred unfortunately…

Originally from Lille, the shop expanded to the right bank in the heart of Passy (16th district).
The shop is tiny and its successful among the neighbors. The shop creates a range of specially and freshly made products (their specialty is meringue) right before your eyes (the pastry is made at window display). 

Meringues are made in four different sizes – from small, individual ones to meringue “cakes” that feed eight.

Meringues are not very easy to make – you need to beat white eggs with sugar and cooked the correct temperature – perhaps the tricky part as it cannot be rushed – for a long enough period of time to create the perfect meringue. 

A must-try is Le Merveilleux – air beaten meringue with a chantilly middle rolled in chocolat and chocolate chips and powdered with icing sugar

Or even L’Incroyable – aie beaten meringue with speculos with a chantilly middle and rolled in white chocolate chips 

In the Viennoiserie section, they offer Le Cramique – A sugary Flemish brioche sparkled with pearled sugar with either chocolate chips and sugar with raisons – sold like a buttered toast

Others include Sugary tart, brioche, flan, pain au chocolat and croissant, chocolate ganache and Flemish waffles. 

The Meringues are usually crispy on the outside with a soft with a light and soft middle – but these are something else. I saw long lines during the Christmas holiday time and I can vouch for them, that they are worth standing in line for. 

If you don’t believe how good the pastries are, go check it out for yourself!
