(Probably) jealous of family just returning after a week in Paris (rainy, but still: Paris!), I ogled these lovely French-style pastries, displayed here in the ATL. Dreaming….
Now macarons (not macaroons)…the fanciest display of them I have ever noticed was in Florence (multicolored, tall tower with ribbons and gold leaf—or perhaps my memory embroiders). Italy, not South Carolina. [Is Florence, SC, still “the place” to go for false teeth? Apologies for the mental jump….]
