Paris in Pictures - Patisseries & Boulangeries


Paris is second to none in the patisserie/boulangerie departments.  I'm not over exaggerating when I say this, but that the croissant pictured here, is the world's best croissant.  It literally melts in your mouth.  I ate one every single morning when I woke up.  Since then, I have yet to eat a croissant that could possibly compare.  And let's not forget to mention, the macaroons.  Those little french cookies are.heaven.in.your.mouth. to die for.  
On this particular morning - our last morning in Paris - we were heading to the Notre Dame Cathedral. It was gloomy out, and the streets were being sprinkled with rain.  It's so easy to take a turn in Paris, and get lost somewhere new.  While we were walking, we stumbled upon this amazing outdoor market in the Latin Quarter, with fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, pastas, sweets, breads, and wines.  You name, it they had it.  I could only imagine living in Paris, walking out my front door, eating the world's best croissant, picking out colorful macaroons, and shopping for dinner.

If I was forced to have one meal for the rest of my life it would be croissants and macaroons. These pictures are beautiful.

How lovely! I love the convenience, the beauty, of just being able to run out the door and pick up fresh whole food for every meal. So simple, but the best food ever. Pierre Herme...ah, I can taste them now.

Just fyi, these are "macarons", not macaroons (totally different cookie, which is a coconut cookie). Americans are always (mistakenly) calling the French Macaron a macaroon.

I'm going to bet that you stumbled upon Rue Mouffetard!?...we stumbled upon it as well, and then went back every day. Love that place!

Luli said...

these pictures are amazing. I love Paris! It's my favorite place to travel to. Actually all of France is pretty amazing.

Rachael said...

All that food looks so good! Yum!!
I've never had a macaroon before, but it would be interesting to try it, especially since you says they're good.
I love that last picture of just the buildings on either side of the little street. A great capture of simple Paris life.
