  • Very nice to see, store especially if looking for special products or in bulk for the kitchen (powder almond, various chocolate, hazelnuts, etc...). Brands available: worth a visit, but if the shelves (and the aisles) are very busy!

  • Funny thing: if you approach this shop from the west, you might fail to realize it's 2 shops, end up in the smaller one, and be unimpressed for a store that David Liebovitz says "has everything." Surp...  more »
  • Two improbable shops in the heart of Paris. A grocery products, salmon, liver, sardines, jams, chocolate etc... and next to the ingredients imaginable for pastry, chocolate and sweets in general etc... An atmosphere of before the war of 14-18 with a cashier in his "glass box". A very good value for money. Parisians have the luck to have such stores.

  • So far, I haven’t found baking supply store in Paris that sells their merchandise at better price than G. Detou. This is where I go to buy bags of pistachios, pecans, almonds, walnuts, shredded coconuts, vanilla beans, dried fruits etc. They are generally rather expensive at supermarkets and they are, I wouldn’t say cheap, but are way more affordable at G. Detou. Also, they have so many types of Valrhona baking chocolates that I have to constantly refrain myself from buying excessively. In fact, every time I go there, I have to exercise self-control so as to not to buy things I don’t need. The store itself is quite small, but they sure know how to maximize every square meter that they have. Their shelves are always full of assorted products that are both intriguing and enticing.
  • super compact shop for bulk quantity luxury baking items like 1 kilo almond paste or canned duck pâte. One side for sweet and the other for salty.
  • A must-stop when in Paris for the best selection (and best priced) gourmet goods. I seek out salts, chocolate, spices, and specialized baking, ice cream and dessert products. Don’t miss the more savory store just a few doors down the block either (best! Sundried tomatoes and peppers, dried in the Provençal sun) plus a good price on Mediterranean pine nuts.
  • Exquisite hard-to-find professional cuisine and pastry products at fair prices!
  • Very small but great place to get various patisserie ingredients in Paris
