I’m trying to experience as many bakeries as possible in The Patisseries of Paris book. Definitely a guidebook to purchase if you are as sugar obsessed as I am. I might need another copy since I’ve drooled on every one of the ¬†photographs, and the pages are getting sticky from my sugary fingers. One of the places recommend is the bakery that produced the first marshmallows in Paris. Definitely a title I couldn’t resist. The marshmallows are sold in long pastel ribbons, making a whole one impossible to eat and irresistible to admire. The book recommend the unusual flavors of coffee and orange. I decided on coffee and regretted it halfway through when I realized I didn’t like to drink coffee, let alone eat six fluffy inches of it. However, many hours later after some 1 euro wine, I liked the marshmallow much better. But anything tastes good after drinking cheap homemade wine coolers.

Since we’ve been here we have been eating about two baguettes a day… when in Rome right? So we are on a constant search to find the best baguette. Yesterday morning we left our little island and walked across the bridge to the 4th arrondissement. We stopped at the first bakery we got to (although we are eating endless starch we also want to exercise as little as possible… obviously going for the study abroad weight gain). I would have to say that these baguettes are the best we have had yet. Crusty and crisp shell with a moist and fluffy inside. We also got almond and chocolate croissants because you can’t evaluate a bakery just based on the bread. And it’s pretty much impossible to leave that place without buying much more than you had planned. Both were delicious and since we were able to polish off these decadent treats within minutes, I’d definitely recommend it.
