La foire!

One thing I like about summertime are the french fairs that pop up! I adore them. Mainly because of the cute sweet stands they have serving up any and all sugary concoctions one can imagine! Goodness I just wanted to eat everything.

Since Paris is a city full of beige immeubles (buildings), these colorful fairs are a sight for sore eyes. Sure you still your creepy carnies and the un-savory types who hang around, but it's all good fun none the less.

I'm looking forward to hitting up the summer fair in the Tuileries! I love going at night and watching the eiffel tower sparkle from the top of the ferris wheel!!

bisous!

Every time I stroll passed the shop Pierre Hermé with a frenchie they always tell me "It's the best macaron in Paris".  After putting it off for months, I've finally stopped by with my parents to see what all the buzz is about. We got there just as it opened and tried the Dark Chocolate, Passion fruit/ chocolate and olive oil/ vanilla. The passion fruit and dark chocolate ones were absolutely perfect. The olive oil one was just okay, I felt the olive oil flavor was a bit too subtle. I'll need to try that one again ;)

My favorite (and the favorite of many others) is the Passion Fruit + Chocolate macaron. Seriously made my taste buds sing and I'm pretty sure I did a happy dance as I ate it.

Hands down best macaron I've eaten... other than my Pierre's macarons of course ;) I will be returning to this shop the next time I'm in the Marais!!
