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 NINE — BUY NOW

In our Spring issue, there’s much to be in high spirits about. We go behind the scenes of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, a movie fuelled by dopamine, alpha dogs, and a vast crew of artisans and animators. We hang with a pack of trippy-looking poodles created by artist Susumu Kamijo. We find five mutts who changed history by injecting their human counterparts with a good dose of serotonin. There is plenty of oxytocin going around, too. We celebrate Sulek’s photography of rescued Spanish galgos, Jo Longshurst’s abstract twist on pet portraiture, and Ho Hai Tran’s love of stripes and spots. We travel to Berlin, Toronto, London, and upstate New York to meet creative types whose bonds with their four-legged mates are as heartfelt as they are intoxicating. We ask five foodies to fess up about dog snacks and guilty pleasures that feed body and soul, and we embrace illustrator Apolline Muet’s bear hugs between humans and animals.
All this, and more, inside the covers.
