Pâtisserie Sadaharu AOKI should be no stranger.
The Japanese brand is one of the biggest names in the French pastries scene, and though the brand is Japanese, it has left bigger footprints in the City of Love, Paris.
Everyone has their favourite brands for eclairs and macarons in Paris, and for us, Pâtisserie Sadaharu AOKI will always be at the top of our minds.
There are several Pâtisserie Sadaharu AOKI boutiques in Paris itself. This speaks volume of its quality for the French are so particular about their pastries.
The maestro himself—Sadaharu AOKI—lives in France and has a deep passion for pastry. He loves simple things and believes that simple things are the hardest to create for they cannot be manipulated. With that, he hones his skills of pastry-making and today, Pâtisserie Sadaharu AOKI is renown for incorporating traditional Japanese flavours into his French pastries, mainly in the form of eclairs and macarons.
Think Houjicha, Matcha, Yuzu, Goma flavoured pastries. There will always be seasonal flavours too, such as Sakura macarons and tea.
The brand’s aesthetic is also kept minimal, true to the modern Japanese style. If you ever find yourself in Paris, do drop by their boutiques for some life-changing Japanese-influenced French Pastries.
