Boulangerie-Pâtisserie Chapel à Paris

Chapel (Paris)

There’s monastic décor in this space where the two Carré brothers officiate, both of whom converted to the religion of bread. Since 2021, this new holy land for sourdough worshippers has been transformed into a haven for small kneaded rectangular loaves of bread, infused with wild Tunisian rosemary, miso (fermented in Tours) or even harissa. If you’re looking for something sweet, try the jam-filled shortbread sandwich, or the oatmeal raisin cookies. At the back of the boutique, there’s a coffee machine, a few jars of fermented vegetables, and even further back, incredible tarts, baked according to the mood of the day. Tested and approved the day we went: a tart with peanut, creamed corn, honey and blackberry jam. All around us were big bags of flour stamped “La Ferme de Forest” (located in the Seine-et-Marne department). Extremely carefully sourced, all of their raw materials come from new, enthusiastic farmers, with whom the young brothers are keen to work. Mass has begun! // Sofia Sétif

Hidden gem: Satisfy your hunger until you get home and grab a sourdough madeleine with a honeycomb texture and the perfect amount of moistness (€1).
