Here are some other random photos from patisseries around Paris... if I won the lottery I would live here, and come to one of these places every morning for breakfast, but for the moment I will have to make do with salivating outside the window like a pauper!
Despite enormous temptation I managed to limit myself to buying just one pastry for myself. (Also we were running out of money and they aint cheap!) I plumped for this gorgeous Strawberry and Pistachio St Honore, while Chris went for the Praline Millefeuille, and we also bought a box of 6 macarons for later as I couldn't come to laduree without trying them. MAN ALIVE these were tasty treats!
(Macaron flavours are - fleur de sel, pistachio, raspberry, cassis, chocolate and coffee)
This week we were on holiday in Paris for my birthday and my first stop was the Laduree around the corner from our hotel near the Place de la Madeleine... Was a bit paranoid about taking pics as I know they are a bit fussy so only managed to get a few of the shop itself - also the queue was moving so fast we were hustled in and out within about 30seconds!

Feta and parsley cigars - I could eat these all day but managed to restrain myself and wait until serving them... also have lots of leftover filo pastry so can make them again this week! Hoorah!
Thank you Diana Henry - Georgian Aubergine salad - griddled aubergine with coriander, greek yoghurt, pomegranate seeds, walnuts and enough garlic to destroy your social life for a week!
And potato salad with dill, red onion and gherkins.
We finished with Lemon Posset, which I will also be eating all week as I made enough for about 20 people! Hooray again! Bang goes the diet for another week - some things are much more important than being slim, lemon posset being a fine example...
