Paris Food Porn – Sweet

And now, the sweets!

Okay, a regular ol’ croissant isn’t exactly a sweet, but I had to include it somewhere. I consumed so many of these for breakfast throughout the street. They were just from random bakeries within a block of our apartment, but they were the best croissants I’ve ever had.

Mmmm, chocolate croissant.

From the famous Berthillon ice cream shop. I had chocolate and salted caramel butter, Sean had chocolate and raspberry. All of the flavors were some of the best ice cream I’ve ever had.

Famous Ladurée macaroons. Salted caramel butter, chocolate, raspberry, and pistachio. A little expensive, but all were delicious.

Pistachio tart topped with raspberries that were glued on with honey. Soooo goooood.

Molten chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Okay, it’s not very french, but it was delicious.

Crepe with homemade caramel and vanilla ice cream. It was kind of a hot mess, but soooo good.

That’s all this time. I wish I could have tried more French desserts, but we just didn’t have the room. We were always stuffed from our main meals. I don’t know why people talk about portion sizes being so much bigger in the US…the French portions we got were just as big!

    Wow, those are good pictures. My food photography is always terrible—how’d you do it?

    I just have a point and shoot, but I think it’s around 10 megapixel. Tried to shoot from a nice angle with ample lighting, tweaked all of them in photoshop a bit to be more vibrant. That’s all, really.

    Yep, I’m drooling-especially over that last one. I’d eat dessert and not even bother with the main courses. I often do that here-perhaps a cup of soup OR appetizer and Dessert. Preferably all at the same time. I remember breakfasts with Eggs Benedict and warm Apple Crisp a la Mode alternating bites at Pepe’s Cafe on Caroline St in Key West (still there, still the best breakfast in town). Better than sex ?~! No doubt.

    Thanks for sharing, Jen, I really appreciate it, I won’t have to do the traveling myself…

    The wal-mart bakery around here used to have chocolate filled croissants, they were pretty darn good, I liked them better than any donuts or anything, but I may have been the only one buying them…and they havent had them in a while.
