Marcel’s is described as a boulangerie , patisserie and bistro – inspired by Marcel La Roux’s continuing journey of gastronomic inspirations from around the world.
Marcel was born to a baker, in a family that prided itself on providing baked treats to the citizens of Paris. The family bakery, Boulangerie de Joie; was known in Paris for delicious breads, macarons and crepes. At the age of 18, fascinated by the stories of the patron, Monsieur Cavalier; Marcel embarked on a magnificent journey savoring pastas in Italy and churros in Spain. He caught Barracudas with fishermen in Morocco and learnt how to cook tangine in Tunisia.
With new ideas and recipes, he hitchhiked to China that eventually led him onto the old Silk Road and into Pakistan. He travelled down to the city of Karachi, which Monsieur Cavalier had spoken of with a faraway look in his eye as the Paris of the East. It was in Karachi that Marcel finally set down roots, concocting new treats to charm the locals with.
As many tales as the palates there maybe but only the finest will get The Taste of Two Cities.
