Where are the little protective caissettes plissées that go under each petit four bien sur?Mon dieu! I was mad. Growling like these not-to-be-missed animal sculptures of Ai Weiwei near The Plaza Hotel.
C'est la vie. I returned to Financier Pastries for a 2nd set of petits fours. A pastry artist must have something to paint.
As a consolation prize I got a passion fruit macaron = instant happiness. When life gives you lemons eat macarons.
With all this mad, crazy love for petits fours seeing L'Amour Fou/crazy love was a natural.
L'Amour Fou is a French documentary about the relationship of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge, their amazing art collection and Berge's decision to auction it off in 2009 in a 3-day extravaganza. Read more in Elaine Sciolino's story here.
The film offers a detailed inside look at their lives together and the relentless luxury of their lifestyle.
Yesterday Yellow Bird dragged me down for more pastry luxuries. Who does he think he is - YSL?
BONJOUR L'AMOUR FOU de PETITS FOURS!
