Something Irresistibly Sweet Has Arrived in Ridgewood

The Authentic French Bakery, Pierre & Michel opened in Ridgewood this month. The original bakery is in Elmwood Park.

Their chef graduated from the french pastry school Ecole de Boulangerie et Patisserie in Paris and has trained in creating all kinds of pastries, petit gateau, chocolates, artisanal breads, and other specialties. Now, after many years of working in France and continuing in his fathers footsteps as a pastry chef, he is bringing something new to America, “a taste of Paris for a new generation”. He enjoys combining old traditional tastes with modern works of art.

The bakery currently offers traditional pastries, cakes, macarons, breads (brioche, baguettes) and chocolates and seats about 40.

Pierre & Michel, 38 East Ridgewood Avenue, Ridgewood, NJ.
