Have you hear of “Nuit du Gâteau”? It’s tonight—La Maison du Chocolat’s first ever “Cake Night”. Sigh.
From 7-9 pm, you can sample chocolate tarts, chocolate pastries, chocolate macarons, chocolate mousse, chocolate truffles and even more chocolate, all free of charge.
And at the Madeleine store (open until midnight, for all you crazy kids), head pastry chef Gilles Marchal will dish extra special chocolate creations.
I don’t know if it will be as crazy as Pierre Hermé’s Macaron Day. But free chocolate and cake on a fine June evening in Paris sounds like the stuff dreams are made of.
