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.
