A Family run business

My grandparents Dora and Itzik Finkelsztajn came from Poland in the early 1930s.
In 1946, they purchased the bakery & pastry shop located at 27 rue des Rosiers, in the historic quarter of Le Marais: an area speckled with Central European and Russian food vendors.

Yet in 1895

My grand father's recipes, which are of the purest Ashkenazi tradition, and his continuous quest for quality quickly won the appreciation of connoisseurs . The Parisian clientele makes no mistake about it: throughout the years, his famous Russian Vatrushka filled with cottage cheese and his Viennese Apple Strudel became a must.

In the early 1970s, my parents Hono and Henri Finkelsztajn, took over the business to which they brought a new impetus. A new path has been opened up for greater creativity, more inventiveness, with a relentless dedication to keeping the tradition alive.
 
The result was the creation of a whole range of high quality gourmet products inspired by classic specialities, yet offering new takes on old classics.

Wonderfully made taramasalata, aubergine caviar, gehakte leber, Albanian cheese – to name a few-
have been praised by many gastronomic guides and food critics.

I took over the care of La Boutique Jaune over 1985.
It is always with great pride and emotion that I strive to convey the soul and know-how of my family's shop and has gained a reputation that extends well beyond our borders.

More than ever, the twenty-first century offers us more than ever the opportunity to combine tradition and modernity.
Hopefully, one day we can hand down the business to a fourth generation of Finkelsztajns.
