Tout De Sweet in Bethesda

Nothing is more exciting than finding out about the opening of a new pastry shop, specially when said shop will be offering macarons made by a famed French Chef! Last Saturday I headed to Bethesda, MD and met up with French Twist DC and Bethesda Foodie to taste the offerings at Tout de Sweet.

Tout de Sweet is Chef Jerome Colin’s new pastry shop located at 7831 Woodmont Avenue. The shop offers macarons, cupcakes, cakes, croissants, and French desserts. Seating is limited, but this is the perfect place to stop by, grab a hot beverage and a few treats to take home with you. There will be outdoor seating in time for the summer.

The first thing you will notice as you walk by the shop are the gorgeous macaron towers on display. The macarons did not disappoint. They were large and delicious, not to sweet & not too chewy, just ethereal clouds with silky soft fillings. And $1.50 is not a bad price to pay for delicious macarons that are twice as big as the ones you can find in the DC area.

The display case is filled with all sorts of goodies including cupcakes and french desserts like charlottes and choux a la creme.

We had a chance to sample crumbly biscotti and an amazing chocolate & hazelnut crunch mousse cake (if you like chocolate, this is your dessert!).

The one item that blew me away was the croissants. Flaky and tender, and perfectly baked with that fresh out of the oven taste. These are the best croissants I’ve tasted in DC so far. So if you make the trek out to Bethesda for macarons, please I beg of you, get a croissant as well. You will not regret it.

I have loved cooking and baking since I was 5 years old. It was the one activity that I would share with all my extended family. Like most people, I love traveling. I love visiting the markets, exploring unknown ingredients, and bringing them back home with me for inspiration. I find that recipes with simple and pure ingredients yield the best results.

  1. I wonder if I can custom order a charlotte with a red fruit mousse filling for my birthday… I mean, it was delicious with vanilla, but I’ve been dreaming of charlottes since saturday!
