It's Not Easy Being Green

One of the great things about travel is discovering new things. This is an absolutely amazing new thing!

Walking through Hediard at 21 Place de la Madeleine 75008 I found this life changing display. Actually Master Wicker alerted me to the presence of samples of Creme de Pistache. He knows me, what can I say?

Oh my! Unctuous wonderment.
I don't make macaroons, so I just need to use it like green Nutella
Naturally I bought a jar straight away

I didn't have any brioche, so toasted rye bread (pain de seigle) had to do.
Not pretty, especially as I was too impatient to let the butter warm up, but OMG so, so delicious.
So, while Creme de Pistache is Sicilian, I found it in Paris, and the French have taught me to love pistachio in all it's wondrous forms. If in doubt go the pistache.

Trying to get over the fact that you put this on bread rather than directly into your mouth. ;)

WANT WANT WANT but very happy for you, too :)
