Finally back in France for a few days after almost 2 years.
I had a great time as usual with great friends, family, food (of course) and shopping (who doubt that!!)
It will take several posts to detail everything so...
...First a little sample of my favorite food
From top left,
Grilled Toulouse sausages
Patisserie from Valantin (Bordeaux)
Everything was delicious, I enjoyed every bites
From top left
Tartare de saumon
Flank steak with French fries and caramelized onions
Magret de canard with mash potatoes and rosemary sauce
Little funny jars of salt, pepper, mustards
Fancy restaurant we went to celebrate my visit. That was just lunch, dinner was even better
Yummy treats from Paris
from top left
Waffle with passion fruit and banana ice cream at Amorino
(a must in Paris, best ice cream in the world)
French breakfast, with rillette sandwich (1 foot long 3 euros in real Parisian bakery), pain au lait, grapefruit juice
Mega sandwich from "la grande épicerie", spinach bread, cream cheese, magret, roquette, tomatoes,
so interesting the way French make sandwiches.
Strawberry short cake from "Le pain quotidien", very fancy and expensive but free wifi!!
One of my favorite but so rare in the US
Local typical desert called "Croustade aux pommes"
= layers of phyllo dough covering melting apples flambé with rhum
next a few pictures of the cities I visited
