Paris is world-famous for its exquisite selection of patisseries, bakeries, cake shops and chocolatiers, all offering their own inventive take on traditional desserts.

The pudding is characterised by a dome of chestnut cream vermicelli, covering a base of meringue and whipped cream.

Here, we take a look at some of the best places to indulge in the Mont Blanc dessert in Paris.
