Etoile, chocolats de Noël de Pierre Tachon pour la Manufacture Alain Ducasse

For foodies, the choice is fantastic: taste the house chocolate of Alain Ducasse, or the ‘Praluline’ – a delicious brioche with praline from master chocolatier Pralus, or let yourself be tempted by a cake at Foucade. 

Each year, everyone looks forward to the traditional Christmas log, which is always a new source of inspiration! Pastry chefs at Parisian palace hotels, including the Hôtel de Crillon, Le Meurice, or the Peninsula, big houses such as Lenôtre and Ladurée, as well as the Café de la Paix put their signature on scrumptious original creations. True works of art, inspired by nature, childhood memories and by traditions and customs from near and afar.

And for a gourmet break, comfortably seated facing the Arc de Triomphe, go to the restaurant LE Drugstore, avenue des Champs-Elysées! From 18 November 2022, a tasty Tea-Time is prepared by the great chefs Éric Frechon and Pierre Hermé with sweet and savoury treats, such as warm madeleines, refined finger sandwiches, or even "Signature" macaroon, "Ispahan" macaroon and slice of panettone, around a good hot chocolate, a fruit juice or even a glass of champagne, according to your whishes!

Many gastronomic and regional products can be tasted and bought at Christmas markets where a festive ambience is guaranteed. And then there are the weekly Parisian markets that offer seasonal produce and which are ideal places to shop for the basics for your Christmas and New Year meals.
