Florentine cookies in Paris

Just got a request to bring back chocolate florentine cookies. Any suggestions on who does them very well? (I thought they were Italian. )

  1. Another French creation... named in honour of one or other of the Médicis that French kings were always marrying.

    My fave: Carl Marletti on the rue Censier in the 5th. But lots of boulangeries-p√Ętisseries have them. Just ask for "florentins" (nasal n and no e at end).

    1. yes, in the 7th, on St Dominique, patisserie Jean Millet, makes excellent miniature florentines, about the size of a US silver dollar coin, they are great.
