Hi Sher! Thanks so much for your kind comment, what a fun coincidence! It looks like you tried out way more at Sadaharu than I did, I am jealous! I am taking notes for next time :)

Thanks for your comment on our webzine! I LOVE macaroons, I had them as dessert at my wedding last year and my husband and I went to france for our honeymoon and ate them often.. So they’re not only delicious but they have a sentimental value too! :D

oh wow! that must have been so pretty, a tower of pastel macarons

It all looks so divine and of course delicious! I will have to check out Sadaharu Aoki the next time I’m in Paris.

Your pictures of the macarons are so good that they make me want to reach into the picture and take a macaron ;)

I love Pierre Hermé! I always wonder why so many people rave about La Durée when the real MVP is Pierre! I will definitely stop by Sadaharu Aoki next time I’m in Paris. Great pics, I love the quality :)

SherNovember 18, 2014 - 9:09 am

Steffy – ahh I feel exactly the same way! I go to Laduree because it’s all we have in NYC but oooh Pierre Herme is just a whole ‘nother level of amazing!

The Paris Pantheon and its Crypt

  Paris Pantheon   When I studied abroad in Paris, I lived in the 5th arrondissement, also known as the Latin or Student quarter. The area was perfect for me – lively, filled with students from nearby ENS and la Sorbonne, and full of bistros, cafes and shops on this one particularly long street behind […]

Annisa

Had a wonderful birthday dinner at annisa, the cozy West Village restaurant owned by Anita Lo. The menu is heavily seafood influenced, with some slight Asian flavors and French technique. We had the black sea bass sashimi with trout and barbecued squid with thai basil and fresh peanuts for appetizers. I’m usually not one for […]
