Visiting a Parisian bakery is always exciting. But Rose Bakery is a particular case. Commanded by a South-Africa born, British raised baker married to a French gentleman, Rose Carrarini had to hear the French pâtissier across the road assured her that her English bakery wouldn't last two minutes in Paris.This was more than ten years ago, and with branches in London and some Asian capitals, the French fellow couldn't be more wrong.

This Franco-British patisserie offers a great range of cakes and little meals made with high quality ingredientes, either organic or from small producers. And you can tell as soon as you taste their products. Prices aren't cheap but they are normal for Paris standards and even fair for the quality they offer.

She has even published a book -okay, everyone is publishing cooking books these days, but still- "Breakfast, Lunch and Tea: The Many Little Meals of Rose Bakery" edited by Phaidon and which offers us, poor mortals, an approach to her too-good-to-be-true creations.

Expect a bit of waiting if you are planning to sit down to enjoy these pieces of heaven. This is especially annoying when the person before you in the queue takes the last piece of the cake that was making you salivate while waiting.You could also order it to take away, equally delicious and queueing free.
