Bakeries in Paris

I can’t talk about Paris and skip the food topic, of course. Though I have mixed feelings about it, things that I thought I would like the most turned out to be… not so impressive, but things that I thought I could not expect much from, suprised me quiet a lot.

Take éclairs, for example. Why would they make a chocolate filling for them? Even though it was unexpected, I liked the one that I had, it was really heavy, that much cream filling there was inside.

Or baguettes – I mean, I didn’t expect much from them, I don’t really like bread in general, but a very ordinary cheese and ham baguette suprised me to the core – that tasty it was. Or croissants – I didn’t like the sweet ones, but I so enjoyed the one with duck pâté, and I don’t care if it’s “omg how can you eat it like this” stuff – it was unbelievably tasty! ) I have some very good memories of our little trip to the farm shop and having a snack in the car… That was a great day )

    What the hell – your site deleted my comment again :( That’s the second time I’ve left a comment and it’s vanished somewhere :@

    I said something about the chouquettes in the first pic being what I made some time ago and I hope you got around to trying them… did you?

      I dont know how to tell you that, but submit button is there for a reason (
      I didnt try that ones to be honest, I focused more on eclairs -> croissants -> baguettes, in that order)) You remember I had a limited capacity for food, so I had to plan it carefully, and I had to leave as much as I could for that day with crepes!
