Want to know how to find award-winning bakeries in Paris? In France we have awards for the best baker, and it’s called “Meilleur Ouvrier de France” or “MOF” as an acronyme, so here is a list of MOF bakeries, in order to find award-winning bakeries in Paris, but also of not MOF bakeries that I really like.

Meilleurs Ouvriers de France

Laurent Duchêne:


 

Laurent Duchêne is a very good baker; he restyles the classics such as l’éclair, and offers innovative and very beautiful food. Example of price: 3€ caramel éclair.

La Maison du Chou:

The House of Chou (as it would be called in English) is the bakery of Manuel Martinez, a star awarded chef. He creates there the best choux of the capital; this is the specialty of his bakery. You will find dozens of different tastes!

7 Rue de Furstenberg, 75006 Paris

Arnaud Larher:

Arnaud Larher was awarded MOF in 2007; his creations are very graphic but still very classic. Take a look at his amazingly beautiful lemon pie!

Lenôtre:

You may have heard of this historic Parisian bakery that Gaston Lenotre opened in in 1957. The bakery is now a chain in eleven different countries. The new chef is two times awarded MOF. If you loved it in France maybe you can find a Lenôtre in your own country!

Best but not MOF:

Some bakeries are not MOF, but they are still amazing.

La patisserie des rêves:

The bakery of dreams, as it would be called in English, is not only gorgeous but also amazingly good.

12 Rue Linois, 75015 Paris

Carl Marletti:

His creations are beautiful and classic, it’s a must try in the capital.

51 Rue Censier, 75005 Paris

Pierre Hermé:

The best pastry I have ever eaten is a 2000 Feuilles from Pierre Hermé’s bakery (I admit that I haven’t tried the MOF bakeries…). Pierre Hermé is definitely a pastry genius.
