  1. We used to live down the street from Paul's when we lived in Rabat. That was our neighbordhood joint and where we bought our bread daily. Now that we live in Marrakech we make our own bread but there is a new Paul's opening here. Yippee! Their sesame baguettes and almond filled croissants are the best!

    Good morning!
    Lovely to wake up to a nice breakfast of croissants and instructions how to kiss (right side first)...very helpful. What is the sweet little French name for two kisses? I've heard it...but can't remember.

    Thank you for a beautiful post.

  3. Of course, I have not had breakfast yet, so this post ..oh! It looks divine and makes my tummy grumble! I do love the sweet still lives you showed also! I recall being enchanted by the Pauls (was it in the 6th e?) and how they had it set up there so lovely! Poster Maryam...ooh..sesame baguetts and almond crossants..those do sound tres excellent!

    Excellent research this morning!
    A French lesson, French manners, and lovely accompanying croissants etc. I love studying the price list of the all the breads they have too - I'll be better prepared for next trip!
    Merci

    I'm looking down at my cereal box this morning and think I could have done better...
    So much better with PAUL croissants, pains au chocolate, briochettes, butter, PAUL jam, freshly squeezed orange juice and PAUL coffee...
    Whatever was I thinking?

  6. Hmmm, now have a strangely strong craving for buttery croissants and more french lessons...notes to self...run to Paul's now! Ask Carol, " If I am left- handed, do I still have to start on the right when I kiss someone in France???? And what is the penalty for starting on the left? Do it over and over until I get it right?.... addendum: go to France and test left handed kissing:)
    Great natures mortes!

    "Don't clean your teeth at the table!" too funny--gee, thanks for that reminder, Carol! I'll have to keep that in mind. ;))
    Lovely post--I always enjoy a good still life and you are a master of that magic triangle that makes for a good one. These are all great! Really liked your fork, by the way, in that watercolor!

  8. "Ce gâteau est sans calories, n’est-ce pas?"

    That's the line I need to know!

    I wonder if Paul has shops in Florida because of the francophone population? It is the most popular "snowbird" destination for Quèbecois.

  10. Another wonderful post this morning. A nice wake up post. ;)
    I love the first painting you did with that cool white tea pot. I love the shape of it. Of course all your paintings are great but I really like the first one. I love the PAUL paper place mat under the the tea set toward the last few pictures too.

  11. This is the first time I have ever really felt my mouth water as I looked at pictures. I could smell and taste that croissant. You are the pre-eminent site for French food porn! Beautiful post, as always.

  17. Ah, the still lifes! Somehow, the stolen shots seem sweeter...why do people object? And those croissants...I'm rushing out to find out just where in Florida I might find Paul's. Merci! Au revoir!

    Thanks for reviving a good memory--one that I think of every day when I look at the "Paul" watercolor you painted for me after my trip to Paris with my daughter earlier this year. She has the second watercolor in her kitchen and mentions it often. Melissa

  20. Gosh! Your post leaves me hankering for Paul! I visited my sister a few summers ago in London, where Paul also has a few boutiques. From what I know, they make the best pastries and coffee in London. I miss it so much!!!

    I visit sometimes PAUL to get some nice pastries here. As far as I know, we have at least 3 PAULs in the central Tokyo.
    I found another branch when I was at the airport in Holland! It must be really worldwide.
    It is nice to visit the link to learn French you mentioned. I have bookmarked it.
    Thanks a lot.
