MAISON VOLLETVisit our Bakery and Caterers for Bread, Cakes, Confectionery and Ice-cream.
100% Home-made Run by Pascal VOLLET, pastrycook for over thirty years, and his wife Caroline. He has a degree in catering and has worked in high-class establishments in Paris, Menton, Grasse and Monaco. They set up in Parthenay in 2003 and his experiences in Michelin starred restaurants has enabled him to respond positively and creatively to the demands of every client no matter how far-fetched! Pascal makes every stage of his cakes and pastries himself from beginning to end, finishing with the almond paste! He loves his food to taste special and so uses only fresh fruits and quality ingredients like Pamplie butter and local flour. He is also one of the few pastrycooks who makes a true rum baba.
Pastries Symbolising Parthenay You will find the shop window colourful and packed with mouth-watering delicacies, which change with the seasons. He takes traditional pastry recipes and changes them to make his own specialities, some of which have a local connection, like the 'Saint-Jacques' a dessert made with chocolate, caramel, orange and walnuts decorated with a picture of the Saint Jacques tower sifted onto almond paste. And the 'Broyé de Poitou' cake, which comes in various shapes, has the head of a Parthenay bull moulded into it.
