Premier jour dans Paris! Researche du tarte au citron meringuee or not..
Why do I live in a city where tarte citron does not lurk on every street corner? :(
C'est pas juste/it's not fair..pas de toute
Enough with leche-vitrine-time to stop the browsing and plunge in!
Oh Cafe Pouchkine - how often I've dreamt of you. I have gazed at you so many times, you temptress.
Quelle surprise! You are a little bit like a trifle. Your creme citron dedans is surrounded by a thin layer of sponge. And on top a decorative meringue, a little toasted, pleasently gooey like a baked Alaska. Who knew?
You are worth the dreams but I must leave room pour les autres tartes.
Dans le vitrine - une belle piece montee macaron citron...
Dans le rue - une tarte au citron car de poste bien sur.
Brasserie Tarte au Citron.
The proud owner doesn't mind a bit as he drinks his tarte au citron biere.
Even Parisien workers are decked out in tarte au citron!
The shop vitrines may be full of color including tarte citron.
Mais les Parisiens, comme habitude, are decked out in noir, gris, beige comme toujours.
I make it over to Gerard Mulot in the 6th. Raids-Patisserie says he has the best citron tarte au meringuee.
Le Figaro says Mulot has the best tarte fraise. I buy both and French Girl and I gobble them down almost forgeting to take a picture. Were they wonderful? BIEN SUR!
We're en retard - un petit de Jet Lag..ahem
but we are racing out as soon as we post and take a wretched shower with that horrid French shower thingie that gets water everywhere :(Vite! Vite! Vite!
