LA CHAMBRE AUX CONFITURES
I have strolled around the Marais countless times (remember the beautiful Place des Vosges?). In fact, it’s one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Paris – lively, relaxed and with way too many cute little shops and restaurants. Recently, I was browsing through Pinterest and the minute I came across La Chambre Aux Confitures I knew I had to go back and discover it! See, my mum always prepares this gorgeous homemade jams, so a good artisanal jam somehow reminds me of home.
When I entered La Chambre Aux Confitures, I was in overwhelmed with the selection of jams and fruit combinations. There were hundreds of little pots in display with the cutest packaging and the sweetest content. All jams are divided into categories according to the type of fruit, so you can choose among winter, autumn and spring fruits, summer red, yellow or black fruits and other fruits. And it doesn’t stop there: There are also chutneys and chocolate spreads (the chocolate and cherry one has rocked my world!). Picking your favourite flavour may not be an easy task, but being able to taste the products makes the process a very sweet experience (trust me, you will be tempted to buy way too many of those cute little jam pots!). Don’t be shy to try or ask any questions, the staff are very kind and helpful. My favourite flavours based on my tasting experience: the very exotic guava, the eclectic raspberry and champagne and last but not least, the classic pear and ginger.
So there you go, now you know how to bring a little bit of Paris home – is there anything sweeter for breakfast than a spread of homemade jam on your morning baguette?

I do believe I’ll need to seek this out on my next trip to Paris! What a delight! Love the Marais, too.

Oh definitely, the store is super cute! Plus, I really like the fact that they let you taste anything you want before you actually buy it. As I said, dangerously good!! 🙂
