La Varenne, inventeur de saveurs à Versailles

Biscuiterie la Varenne Versailles
There's a brand new biscuits and sweets shop in town which opened this weekend and oh my goodness they are so good! Directly inspired from the table of kings with either recipes from back in the day or slightly modernised ones... Oh those ginger-lemon ones...  François Pierre La Varenne, incidentally, was the writer of the most influential cookbooks in the XVIIth century!

Hmmmm... Qu'ils sont bons les biscuits La Varenne ! Directement inspirés de recettes de l'époque ou carrément fabriqués comme à la table des rois ! Un vrai délice ! La boutique, ouverte ce weekend, se situe rue des deux portes et le site web est par ici. Pour en savoir plus sur François Pierre de La Varenne, c'est par là !

A ginger lemon biscuit sounds wonderful to me!
No winter coats anymore - it was 25˚C here today and very humid! All the trees are popping their leaves finally. ;-)

It all looks so wonderful!

I can see that I would certainly over-indulge in this place. Ginger-Lemon sounds wonderful.

Randy said...

Looks like my kind of place. The orange slices look wonderful.

Almost impossible to find something like this in the US. Maybe in the biggest cities. By comparison, there is a hot dog shop in Chicago where people queue up for a block.

This place looks very, very dangerous!

I'll have a ginger-lemon one, please!

This kind of shops should be outlawed!

Didn't you recently suggest my brownie post was cruel? I learned from the master ;-)

Loree said...

Oh my, I want some of those cookies. The store looks really intriguing.

Amy Franks said...

oh...oooh yum!

Kay said...

Oh, I'm so glad I can't reach through my computer screen and grab these. I think I'd embarrass myself with excess. These goodies look fabulous and your photos have more than done them justice.

Dina said...

The place is a treat for the eyes as well.

Lois said...

Oh my! Everything looks so delicious. I would not be able to stay away from that place!
