paris in pictures

July 11, 2012

So, Paris was pretty cool.

Highlights included a macaroon making class at Lenôtre, a boat cruise that was surprisingly fun and informative despite being over-the-top tourist, a behind the scenes tour of the pâtisserie Sucrécacao, and a whole lot of walking from a café here to a lazy lunch there to then finally a dinner of delicious. It isn’t called a vacation for nothing.

This trip has most certainly got me inspired to bake it up but it has also been nice to be out of the kitchen for a bit and enjoy the offerings of summertime. I hope you are all doing the same.

That said – I have been doing a bit of baking and upon arrival in Prague I made this red currant meringue tart. The recipe will be up next!

Happy summer y’all!

I love Paris! I did a short internship there, and after that I love visiting – so you’re photos are a great reminder of how wonderful this city is :)

I’ve been dying to go to Paris ever since I saw Midnight In Paris! But I like your idea of a holiday better than the general-tourist-version. A macaron lesson and lots of cafes, now that’s my idea of a good time!

I want a framed version of the one of you in the chef’s hat! And I would like a dozen macarons please. I can’t wait to hear all about it. I’ll save some glorious Seattle summer for your arrival — hurry! xx
