Here at A Spoonful of Sugar we are passionate about baking and cooking. While in Paris we spent a day browsing through cooking stores and buying a few supplies for some French inspired baking. We were like two kids in a candy store – seriously, we had never before seen such an extensive range of cake tins, moulds, cookie cutters, and baking supplies – it was almost overwhelming! Many of the stores catered for baking professionals/pastry chefs – it was so much fun.
First up we explored the stores on rue Montmatre (Metro: Les Halles; RER: Châtelet/Les Halles). These stores primarily cater for professional chefs and had commercial grade supplies.
On our last day in Paris, we discovered a lovely cooking store next to our hotel, inside the Gare St Lazare train station in a big modern shopping mall.
Du Bruit Dans La Cuisine
Gare St Lazare (Inside the Train station)
rue St Lazare, Paris, 75008
Du Bruit Dans La Cuisine has a great range of cooking utensils, baking supplies, gourmet food, cook books, and home wares. There was a cooking demonstration in progress at the rear of the store.
Alice Delice is a chain of cooking/homewares stores in France and Belgium We visited the store in Amiens.
The Paris store is located at Bercy.
Cour saint émilion, Chai 7/9
75012 Paris (Bercy Village)
Alice Delice had a great range of baking supplies, cake tins, home wares and more.
We also explored the baking sections of Le Bon Marche, Galeries Lafayette (Maison Store), and BHV. These all had a good range of baking supplies, not as wide as the speciality stores, but still worthy of a look.
