The Patisseries of Paris

Let me tell you Francophiles about a book I purchased recently:

‘The Patisseries of Paris’

by Jamie Cahill
photographs by Alison Harris

I have wanted this book for so long.
I first spotted it at a Barnes & Noble in Washington DC
on my Summer vacation last year.

I even wrote about it in my travel journal.
This is what I wrote:

“I came across this amazing little book at Barnes & Nobles today.
‘The Patisseries of Paris’ - $16. I really really wanted to buy it,
but I'm not sure if I'll get much use out of it.”

You can imagine my joy as I saw this little treasure
on sale last week. It's a very handy book.
The patisseries are listed per arrondissment.

Accompanied with beautiful photography and
insightful tips.

Now all I need to do is whisk myself off to Paris
and let the feast of patisseries begin!

Au Revoir,
