Patisseries in Paris

Okay, I'm going to be honest here. When I found out I'm going to Paris for a few days the first thing I thought of was the food. I was already making lists of all the patisserie places I wanted to go and visit. Mind you I did go to see the all the landmarks in Paris too - the architecture is incredible!

I'll just leave a few pictures from my trip here

Day 1 

Galleries LaFayette

Strawberry, Blackcurrant, Lemon, Pistachio and Black Sesame macarons (I did try an Olive and Vanilla one from Pierre Herme!)

Pierre Herme counter 

Beautiful looking Éclairs - I should add how expensive they were - around £5 for one!

Lots of different spices
A chocoholics dream - stacks of Lindt and the best part was you can taste anything you like!
Eiffel Tower at night - The sheer scale of it and the architecture once you're stood next to it is breathtaking

Day 2

Palace of Versailles  - The palace of King Louis XIV

Mango Sorbet with Whipped Cream 
Les Enfants Terribles

Honeyed Duck Breast with Pumpkin Purée - This was the first time eating Duck and I'd definitely have it again!  

Steak and Chips

Espresso, Blackcurrant sorbet, crème brulee and a mini chocolate Lava fondant 

Raspberry and Lychee Macaron

Day 3 

The view from the second floor of the Eiffel - It was absolutely freezing! 

Aquarium which had a touch pool where you could touch the fish!

Arc de triomphe - Built to commemorate Napoleons victories

The view from the top of the Arc de triomphe - There were nearly 300 winding steps to the top which ended up making you exhausted and dizzy but the view is totally worth it!

Opera cake - Mega chocolatey and moreish
