Seriously, one should not have to chose one of these desserts. To even start a process of elimination is heart breaking. So, I opt for the easy way out and just take pictures.
Believe me for the first few years of living in France, I indulged myself greatly. French desserts are works of art. Beautifully made and wonderful to eat. I am now going to disappoint you, as I am incapable of describing the ingredients and the names of these wonders. I am not a cook in any form or fashion and will admit great ignorance in writing about anything to do with food forms. How can I put this? Seriously? I think we all needed a break from looking at fashion and personally, I find these glass pots of cream with wafers and chocolate sprinkles, or
those whipped up mounds of chocolate mousse, or even better yet, those fresh raspberries with french wafer fingers (I think that is what they are called), and last but not least the religieuse au chocolat with lavender icing to die for. Pretty and poetic. So, there you have it friends and family, my contribution to your knowledge of french cuisine!!! Please do not quote me on any of the above terminology..... just wanted to brighten your day in a sugary way.
Sending love to you all from Paris, Linda

Chocolate with Lavender icing sounds like heaven to me. I have never seen desserts look and taste so good as in Paris. The one thing I like best about them is the level of sweetness....... just perfect, so you can taste every ingredient. We know you don't indulge in these perfections. I love seeing the fashion, but I also love seeing the organic market, cheese shop, bread shop, wine shop. Okay I think we have a meal now. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Mais Linda, pas besoin de savoir comment ils s'appellent et comment ils sont faits.... On a juste envie de les MAAANNNGGGEEERRR et attention à la ligne... Difficile de rentrer un gros popotin dans un jodphur longiligne héhé et ben c'est pourtant ce que je fais en toute tranquillité...
J'espère que le dimanche se passe sans indigestion.
Je vous embrasse affectueusement

Hello M.B.

Nothing comes easy as we say!!! Just hop on a
TGV to Avignon. Then a taxi to St. Remy de Provence.
These wonderful pastries are to be found in the only
"tea salon" in St. Remy. Just ask and you will find....

Hugs to you, Linda
