Craftsman boulanger Eric Kayser’s flagship store in Paris opened its doors in 1996. Inside, walls of freshly baked artisan breads and colorful tarts provide edible artwork to the masses. One might say baking is in Eric Kayser’s blood: his family instilled in him an affinity for the craft, which he equates to an art form. The shop's specialties range from the monge baguette and viennoissieries (Viennese-style pastries) to gourmet sandwiches and salads. New recipes are invented monthly and are based on the freshest of produce.
