Pâtisserie

Pâtisseries from a boulangerie in France
Pâtisserie from a bakery in Montreal, Quebec.

A pâtisserie (pronounced: ) is the type of French or Belgian bakery that specializes in pastries and sweets. In both countries it is a legally controlled title that may only be used by bakeries that employ a licensed maître pâtissier (master pastry chef).

In France and Belgium the pâtissier is a pastry chef who has completed a lengthy training process, typically an apprenticeship, and passed a written examination.[1] Often found in partnership with a boulangerie, pâtisseries are a common sight in towns and villages in France and Belgium.
