Paris is world-famous for its exquisite selection of patisseries, bakeries, cake shops and chocolatiers, all offering their own inventive take on traditional desserts. One of the most famous French desserts is the Mont Blanc, which takes its name from the highest mountain in Europe. The pudding is characterised by a dome of chestnut cream vermicelli, covering a base of meringue and whipped cream. It is thought that the sweet treat was first enjoyed in France in 1620, and it has been replicated and re-invented by some of the most famous patisseries in Paris ever since. Here, we take a look at some of the best places to indulge in the Mont Blanc dessert in Paris.
