Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Dreaming of Paris.....


When I can't be in beautiful Paris
I head over to my favourite coffee & cake shop
to console myself with something really spekky!
like the delectable
~ vanilla bean gateau~
I would love to be able to make those
beautiful big white chocolate swirls



my daughter chooses the
~viennese apricot cheesecake~



all served by our handsome waiter~bien sur~


and then for my petite-filles
a little treat.

umm!... if I close my eyes
I could almost be in Paris.

Ps, the rose Belle du Seigneur, does it flower much and where is it from? Im planning another rose section of my garden and want beautiful,pink roses.Fiona

Hi Fiona:- "Belle du Seigneur" is from the French company ~Delbard Roses~ who originally commenced selling roses in Paris in the 1930's.
It's a pretty coppery rose colour with a rose vanilla fragrance. Good luck with your new garden.

I could have easily been fooled and thought I was in Paris. What a handsome waiter. He could be a model.

Until we get to Paris again, we have to take advantage of all these other sensory experiences, and tasting these goodies is the best way to go!

Delicious post!

You are making me dream of Paris as well. I have made a point of having a stopeover for a few days every summer on my way to Morocco with the kids and they are coming to appreciate "All things french" :)
I can taste the pastries as I type. I do have a perfect Apple Tarte that will go wonderfully with your delices.
