I’ve recently journeyed to France. C’est trés bon. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the different culture and way of life. It’s steeped in history and has much to see and experience.
I stayed in Lyon, a truly magnificent city. I was so impressed with the ambience and the real ease of accessibility around the city.
Most of all however, I adore the food!! I have sampled some amazing dishes and of course the patisseries and boulangeries. In particular my favourite patisserie is Pignol. I was so impressed with it’s authentic and traditional French feel, with a wide variety of cakes to eat! You are truly spoilt for choice.
It took me a while to decide I have to admit but in the end I decided on this;
A hot chocolate with chattily cream and for the cake;
Words can’t describe how amazing this was!!!!
You can’t come to France though and not sample Macarons. Delicious. Not only a delight to the eyes, an explosion to the taste buds. I wasn’t disappointed! I have to admit to trying to make these at home but due to impatience didn’t allow them to rest properly, hence they didn’t rise properly. I have learnt my lesson; next time I try them it will be very patient. Even if they are a fraction like the ones I had in France the would be a real treat.
As you can see; I was spoilt for choice. In the end I chose; Pistachio, Coffee, Chocolate Orange and Lemon. Yum yum!! Let’s just say…I was blown away.
Please visit France to experience the amazing patisserie.
I next sampled some amazing bread and pastries.
This was my first French breakfast. So tasty and perfect with a coffee.
You can’t come to France and not go to Paul world famous and well renowned. I had a gorgeous late night snack. Haha.
I tried guinea fowl for the first time and loves it. Great with a huge chunk of bread and wine!
Safe to say I’ve had an ace time in France and highly recommend the food!! Paris is known for being a romantic city but Lyon is known as the food capital of France…I know which one is chose!
