Last fall when I was in Paris I was walking past a church as the guests were hovering outside waiting for the bride. It was a beautiful October day. I had much fun watching the women and observing what they were wearing. These little girls is what really captured my attention. I just loved their dresses, with a hint of violet and the matching headbands. They were having so much fun running around and playing.
Once again I am obsessed by the cakes they sell in Paris. A cake like this looks too beautiful to cut. I thought that the frosting looked like ribbons on the girls dresses. What flavour do you think this cake is?
Cooking is one of my passions in life. Enjoying good food, pastries, chocolate and everything the French have to savor is my other. This should come as a surprise given my father chose my name after reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
I am a voracious reader and collector of cookbooks. Little did I know that all my grade school French lessons would come in handy one day.
