During the month of December, Moulin’s Newport Beach patisserie has transformed into a Parisian holiday market. Named One of The Best Holiday Markets in the US by Food & Wine, Moulin’s market will run through December 31.
The bustling market is curated by Moulin’s owner, Laurent Vrignaud, and is a recreation of his hometown of Montmartre, Paris in Orange County. Some highlights of this market a display case glistening with fine pastries including large-format St. Honoré and Sesame-Fig Tarts, artisan foie gras with Jurançon, and a Nebuchadnezzar of Bollinger’s Special Cuvée.
The walls boast fine epicurean items sourced directly from France including mustards by Amora and Savora, Sel de Guerande, and Cornichons de Maille; a variety of luxurious French chocolates from artisan chocolatiers Poulain and Banania; limited production Alain Milliat jams and fruit juices; as well as tableware from Marat d’Avignon and handmade knives from Laguiole.
From the moment guests enter Moulin’s patisserie, they’re transported to Paris with the smell of fresh baked pastries, the sound of French Christmas music playing, and the sight artisan tarts glimmering in the pastry case. From floor to ceiling, the patisserie is brimming with beautiful holiday baskets of all sizes filled with everything a true Francophile could ever dream of.
