The Hot Chocolate L'Africain:
Mille Feuille -a dessert of a thousand layers and goodness:
HAPPY BIRTH TO MY BLOG! It has been one year this month. I have enjoyed posting and sharing my travels, ideas, work, outfits, and above all reading everyone's comments. I can't believe a year has passed by!
"Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", in English means "Let them eat cake". Despite what you've heard, Marie Antoinette never said it, but she may as well have, because if you are in France you have such choices and quality at your fingertips of the best pastries, that you won't be able to resist. Not only do they look good, it tastes amazing. My cousin Emilie took me to one of her favourite tea rooms in Paris. It was called Angelina (and no, not the Jolie-Pitt). We waited for an hour to get a table, I was at first annoyed by the wait, but once in, every minute waiting was worth it. "Angelina is a must-not-miss venue for the Parisian aristocracy. There Proust, Coco Chanel, YSL were to be found..." To my delight the place was beautifully decorated and the treats were unbelievably delicious. I had their famous old fashioned hot chocolate L'Africain, paired with Mille-Feuille , such richness & goodness.
