Many are grateful for the appearance of Franciacorta Maision de Patisserie. Established by the passionate and enthusiastic chef Eric, who went as far as Japan, France and Italy to learn from the best pastry chefs, brings us authentic Parisian pastries as well as some traditional pastries that not even the French know. This little shop sells Macaroons (NT$2/gram) that come in pink, pale yellow, pale green and many other colors. The fine crispy outer layer and the soft center might not look too impressive at first glance -- but wait till you taste one. Macaroons are difficult to make -- the high rate of failure makes it a common test for pastry chefs in Paris. Damoiselle (NT$200) is an extension of the strawberry macaroon; "damoiselle" is what people used to call "it-girls" in the old days. With natural vanilla cream, fresh raspberries, laichees or longans, this multi-layered pastry is a taste sensation. A time consuming pastry to make is the Millefeuille Framboise (NT$100), which is made with sweet and sour apricots or fragrant apples and will make you marvel. Eric presents different pastry specials according to season as well. Please check their website for more details.
