Jean-Paul Hevin Cadeaux (gifts), original watercolor, 9" x 11"
Paris chocolatier, Jean-Paul Hevin's favorite color is an intense cobalt blue. It's mine too, in case you hadn't noticed. I can't get enough blue paint in my watercolors.
It's a natural that I'd flip for his goodies! Not to forget that he is 1 of Paris' top 3 musketeers of chocolat and won the competition for best chocolate macaron in 2005.
I bought the blue tin on the right full of macarons last trip just for painting purposes of course. This display is from Jean-Paul Hevin's shop on 231, rue Saint-Honore.
Last May, I stayed in a studio just a few doors down from his 3, rue Vavin shop, so I went in or at least looked in daily = heaven. I could buy a quiche + dessert + a very small piece of chocolate for lunch = heaven/Hevin.
I fell victim to this dessert in a glass (Verrine Mascarpone) just because it looked so pretty - painting purposes again.
I haven't made it yet to Hevin's de la Motte Picquet shop -> next trip. And next trip, I WILL GO UPSTAIRS TO the SALON DE THE on rue Honore!
