Onsite sketching part deux - Ta da!
BEAR choisie La Maison du Chocolat on 1018 Madison Ave. And BEAR choses the eclair caramel ($6.50). He is partial to caramel so what can I do..?
I LOVE the striations on this pastry - for me they are the sign of a classy eclair, though I have no proof of this.
Inside La Maison du Chocolat's eclair the creme caramel is...creamy and contrasts nicely with the caramel icing on top. Why don't I have the correct words to describe this to you? At least you can head here without traveling 3000 miles
BEAR studies the recipes in LMDC's chocolate book while I doodle - he has not given up on b--king like some people...ahem
I'm sitting in an alcove just above the chocolate shop s0 I can hear bits of conversation wafting by...
"Chocolate is the modern miracle cure for everything!
"There is a lot of giggling in response
\"You make people happy here don't you?"
He says, "Yes we do." smiling.
La Maison du Chocolat is a little piece of Paris just waiting to tempt you. They have awfully nice chocolate classes too
La Maison's windows are dependably witty and very Parisienne
Oh why didn't I get their terrific chocolate macaron? I'm kicking myself a bit (and BEAR too). Especially after reading Louise of Raids Patisseries excellent survey of chocolate macarons in Paris. Don't miss it! We will simply have to return for more sketching at La Maison - Life can be tough sometimes..non?
BONJOUR ONSITE SKETCHING at LMDC!
