A delicious tale of murder and sweetness. A young girl's life is transformed by a visit to the greatest Salon du The in Paris, but she discovers more than the sophisticated magnificence of a Mont Blanc. She finds a new world, one which lures her in, corrupts her, consumes her and ultimately destroys her. What 'Perfume' did for scent, 'The Patissier' does for taste.
Abandon yourself to the glorious world of the Parisian Salon du The, devour the deadly delights of chocolat, pastry, crème pâtissière ... and one final flourish - an exquisite, divine drop of deathly poison.
Fairytale for grownups
Loved this book - like a fairytale but for grownups with pastries to die for! Great author, well written.
