Shop Dog: Patisserie des Martyrs

Bombe glacées sculpted with raspberry sorbet  into a frozen dome and dressed in crème Chantilly. Neapolitan mousse wrapped in layers of vanilla meringue and stippled with chocolate crumbs. Drooling yet? Then imagine how Hot Dog, pastry chef Sébastien Gaudard’s Jack Russell terrier, must feel accompanying his master to work at Paris’ cult Pâtisserie des Martyrs. Gaudard was born into  a family of pâtissiers and cut his teeth at Fauchon and Délicabar, where he was dubbed “The Little Prince of Pastry”, before opening up his own shop. His raisons d’être is revamping traditional French confections, which he has elevated to an art form. But where Martin Parr’s photographs of pillowy doughnuts look good enough to eat, Gaudard’s most certainly are.

We chat with Gaudard about travelling, bribe food and beignets aux pommes.

ISSUE SEVEN — OUT NOW

This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
