I miss the food the most.
Farewell my beloved gateau,
pain au chocolat et les macarons.
But, psssh, I'll let you in on a secret ...
Don't tell anyone!
I have found a shop near me that sells macarons!
Macarons outside France, you say?
I spotted this macaron ad:
100 grams of macarons (3.5 oz), only €3,50!
100 grams will buy you 8 mini macarons.
I'll take what I can get!
Vanilla, raspberry, lemon, chocolate, café and pistachio.
I'd rate them a 7 out of 10,
except for the pistachio, who scores an 8 out of 10!
They are, of course, no where near Pierre Hermé's
perfect macarons. And I do mean perfect!
Though they're much better than the
macaron I had in Brussels, Belgium.
Or my own home-made macaron,
for that matter ...
Yes, no macaron can top Paris' macarons!
