Pascale le Glacier


 On Saturday Louise of Raids-Patisserie took us for a grand parcours/tasting of ice creams - 5 flavors!

 Have you heard of Pascale le Glacier?
I bet not.
17 rue Bois-le-Vent 75016
Metro: Passy

 Yet he provides the best ice creams to many, many restaurants and has won prizes for the special quality of his fruity, fresh seasonal sorbets.

 Over 60 parfums!

 Not cheap and you can't buy just a cone here

Intense fruitiness is guaranteed.
 Louise chooses our flavors to taste.

 Enfin we make a picnic on a banc/bench in jardins de Ranelagh. Chocolat has an almost mousse-like mouthfeel
Vanille is full of vanilla bean and exquisite - not too sweet either
Framboise could not taste more fresh or like real raspberries
Abricot is a bit 'farinee'/floury Louise declares..
Peche/peach is superbly peachy with a soft delicate mouthfeel

 Being in France is a constant challange

 To all the senses

 Visually...

 Hugo and Victor feeds the eyes and the tastebuds.

 Guerlain parfums are delicious for the nose...

 A feast for the eyes awaits in most vitrine/window

You feel constantly like a little kid.
Fresh and spontaneous.
Just open your eyes and enhale!

  6. Someone is having way too much fun in Paris ;-) These ice cream flavors sound wonderful. I spotted "la Fraise des Bois" on the menu list. It was always a favorite of mine chez Berthillon, on Ile St Louis. Bonne journee dans la capitale, wherever your Parisian adventures may take you, Carol. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  7. Bravo Carol, this looks like another good "tour" for the books! I have to agree with you about Paris being a feast for the senses! I don't usually do the food all that well, but the visual and the tactile are amazing! I wonder what you will find for us tomorrow? Have Fun! Kim

  8. Looks like your having a good time exploring - and Bear, too.
    I detect a touch of "Bringing Up Bebe." Be like a child & let your curiosity roam. (I like the dance show :)

      I need a good spanking

  9. A challenge to all the senses - too right!
    When it comes to ice cream I'm a slave to chocolate - your mousse-like tub has got me slavering.

  10. Oh yes. I want the Chocolate please. :)) Looks wonderful. So... are the tastings free or is there a fee? Look forward to more fun tomorrow. :)
