Pâtisserie Stohrer, Paris

If you are in and out of Paris and you have yet to discover the pastries of Pâtisserie Stohrer, then you are depriving your taste buds of some of France’s finest treats.

Founded in 1730 on rue Montorgueil, Pâtisserie Stohrer is Paris’s oldest pâtisserie. It was created by Nicolas Stohrer who was the pâtissier to King Stanislas of Poland. Mr. Stohrer is largely acknowledged for creating the Baba Rhuma.

As the story goes, King Stanislas, who was exiled from Poland and living in Alsace and Lorraine, brought back a dried baba from one of his trips. To solve the problem, Mr. Stohrer soaked the baba in Malaga wine and introduced saffron, dried and fresh raisin and crême pâtissière, et voila Baba Rhuma.

In 1725, Nicolas Stohrer moved to Versailles to serve as the pâtissier to King Stanislas’ daughter, Maria Leszczyńska, who married King Louis XV. Shortly after he opened his own shop in Paris, later catering to King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette.

The shop today is full of pleasant delights extending a culinary tradition of over 270 years.
