Spring in Pastries

Pâtisseries in France are always delightful on the eye and the palate, and it’s such fun to come across gorgeous window displays of delectable goodies that sometimes seem too beautiful to eat.

See an earlier article on maracons here:


Recently we were in Paris at Easter time, and stopped for coffee at a Paul’s at the train station. Couldn’t resist that Easter bunny brioche with chocolate, as well as a macaron each—one of the only times that I eat very sweet treats.


And on our wanderings we came across a Lenôtre shop with a pretty (as always) display. We’d just eaten lunch otherwise we may have been tempted to buy one of these!

lenotreThe spring-hinting-at-summer macarons were really amusing—their pâtisserie chef must have a great sense of humor!
