Julian Merceron, Jean Cazals - Author

About the Author

Julien Merceron is the latest in a long line of dedicated pâtissiers, chocolatiers and confectioners to stamp his indelible mark on the À la Mère de Famille legacy.

Today, Julien Merceron brings his own know-how and innovation to the renowned sweet delights of À la Mère de Famille . Along with a master craftsman (a Meilleur Ouvrier de France, no less), Julien spends most of his time hidden away in ‘33’, a laboratory located next door to the 9th arrondissement store. Here he plays with the traditional confections of the store (candied fruits, syrups, marshmallows, chocolates) and uses them as inspiration for his own original creations: delicious cakes, extravagant ice-creams, ‘Exquimaux’ (popsicles) or the famous  ‘Amants’ of À la Mère de Famille. Now past its 250th anniversary, the little 18th-century grocery store has become a place of legend with its stunning décor from another time and its show-stopping confectionery. Chocolates, caramels, pâtes de fruits, ice-creams, boiled sweets, lollipops, marzipans, nougats and of course its marrons glacés, are all recognized as the best that can be found in Paris.

The ‘33’ laboratory was created so that young chef Julien Merceron could have free rein to express his creativity. This unique place, located next to the historic Faubourg-Montmarte store, opens onto the street so that passers-by can share in the delicious experiments that give birth to the delicacies sold next door.
