What an experience it is!
|From the first glimpse outside|
|It's totally elegant and beautiful|
|everything is displayed like fine works of art- which indeed they are|
|So much to try|
|The pate des fruits (fruit jellies) glisten like jewels|
and there are some rather unexpected flavours
|Not all that is red is berry!|
|The Mangue Passion of legend|
|All too soon it is time to leave|
And what of the caramels? I've only eaten a few of my stash, but they are indeed divine. The Mangue Passion (Mango/Passionfruit) and Caramel Beurre Sale (Salted Butter Caramel) are incredible. The joy of the pate des fruits still awaits.
Rather stupidly I didn't buy any of his chocolates on this visit. Thankfully they give you a tiny sachet with two chocolates to try. That milk caramel will stand up as one of the gustatory highlights of the trip I think. The dark chocolate mint has an incredibly intense mint flavour, and was a bit too much for me.
And now I think I need a caramel for breakfast....
