what i want to eat: Parisian Desserts


  1. (double-decker) macaroons from Ladurée (easy-to-find location on the Champs-Élysées) - check out wikipedia's description and history if you've never had a macaroon before
  2. crêpe with nutella and banana - check out wikipedia's description and history if you've never had a crêpe before. I recommend you find a street vendor (maybe while window shopping) to make this fresh in front of you. 
  3. crème brûlée - check out wikipedia's description and history if you've never had crème brûlée before. I like to tap my spoon against the hard caramel shell to make it crack before I dive into the custard.
  4. chocolate mousse - check out wikipedia's description and history if you've never had chocolate mousse
    before. Very light (and mostly air) so a pretty guiltless dessert. 
  5. soufflé - check out wikipedia's description and history if you've never had a soufflé before. Note that these take a while to bake so they usually have to be ordered at the beginning of the meal.
