Bogato Pastries – ©Anaïs Costet

If you thought that a “second confinement” would discourage the teams at the Chez Bogato pastry shop newly established in the Marais, you were wrong!

For more than 10 years, Anaïs Olmer, its founder, has developed unique pastry techniques to create the craziest cakes straight out of our imagination.

What are the instructions for use?
This is where the new pastry shop in Le Marais comes into play. Every day and by appointment, this real cake creation lab offers a whole collection of its “starred” pastries and signature recipes to take away.

In individual portions or whole, in this appetizing setting, everything is designed to allow us to create the cake of our dreams. Even the prices, which range between 4 and 84 euros on average, are attractive.

In this space dedicated to the organization of personalized gourmet parties, you just have to let yourself be guided. Based on our desires, themes, stories, date and number of guests, a consultant will offer us prototypes, templates, colors, essential recipe cards, mood boards, confetti bar and disco balls.

Once the order has been placed, the teams of pastry and lace makers create our tailor-made cake by hand, to be delivered or collected on site.

Who can participate in the creation of a Bogato?
Young and old who want to create and enjoy a unique and deliciously spectacular birthday, wedding, baby shower, festive ceremony and even corporate cake.

And since Chez Bogato there are no limits to creativity, you can also order on their what you need to design your party decoration with your own hands.

All the accessories available at the boutique-lab, party favors, balloons, Polaroids, candies and DYI creation kit are also available on their site. (Price from approximately 2,50 to 60 euros)

Once confinement is behind us, it will be high time to participate in recreational workshops.

What do we do here ? 
With the pastry chefs in 1h30, children from 4 years old, parents, friends and colleagues up to 99 years old, will learn French pastry techniques and will be able to share, for around 36 euros, a moment of complicity while enjoying themselves of a “handmade cake, as good as it is beautiful”.

From Tuesday to Saturday 11AM - 20PM

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
