Photographed in Paris, France
Not much past 6 a.m., and before the sun has kissed Paris’ glorious rooftops, pastry chef Sébastien Gaudard and his charming Jack Russell, Hot Dog, are out the door, and making their way via scooter to Gaudard’s eponymous pâtisserie on the Rue des Martyrs.
A second generation pâtissier born 300km from Paris in the Lorraine region, Gaudard is as devoted to reinterpreting classic French pastries as he is to seeking out the best ingredients the world has to offer. With his name gracing his jewel-box-like shop in Montmartre and salon de thé near the Louvre, Gaudard is living his dream, as is Hot Dog, who is surely one of the best fed pups in the City of Light.
