The Hot Chocolate L'Africain:
Mille Feuille -a dessert of a thousand layers and goodness:
HAPPY BIRTH TO MY BLOG! It has been one year this month. I have enjoyed posting and sharing my travels, ideas, work, outfits, and above all reading everyone's comments. I can't believe a year has passed by! In honour of my Blog's birthday celebrations I need to give a shout out to Vanessa who literally sat me down and said "I am not leaving your place until you start a blog today". Thanks V for the push! Type A personalities are very persuasive.
" Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", in English means "Let them eat cake". Despite what you've heard, Marie Antoinette never said it, but she may as well have, because if you are in France you have such choices and quality at your fingertips of the best pastries, that you won't be able to resist. Not only do they look good, it tastes amazing. My cousin Emilie took me to one of her favourite tea rooms in Paris. It was called Angelina (and no, not the Jolie-Pitt). We waited for an hour to get a table, I was at first annoyed by the wait, but once in, every minute waiting was worth it. "Angelina is a must-not-miss venue for the Parisian aristocracy. There Proust, Coco Chanel, YSL were to be found..." To my delight the place was beautifully decorated and the treats were unbelievably delicious. I had their famous old fashioned hot chocolate L'Africain, paired with Mille-Feuille , such richness & goodness. Now I need to convince Jacqueline (the only cool girl I know that can make such beautiful treats) to have a day where she could bring me some of her own goodies while I would provide some wine and French music. Enjoy these delicious images I took.
