What the Real Basquese were wearing was more correct.
As someone wwho Loves RED with a capitol R, you would think I would have more of it in my wardrobe than I do. I'm in the 'add a touch of red' school both in watercolor and dress.
The king of top Basque chefs was onboard.
Here caught passing the baton/whip to an underling.
Unfortunately I arrived late afternoon and all the lunch specialties were gone to be served again at 8 o'clock same evening. Hmmm...most Parisfetes never stop serving throughout the day. I should have arrived earlier.
There were ample sweets available like Maison Pariès out of this world caramel Kanougas. They now have a shop in Paris. 9 bis, rue Saint Placide.
Cherry gateaux Basque also from Pariès.
The all-boy Basque band was terrific. The Russkies in Metro Concorde have been replacd in my heart.
Brilliantly colored sud-ouest awning stripes from Bayadera.
Pariès has excellent glacé.
And they had Two chariots de glacé!!
On the way to Paris Basque I caught thiswitty chariot de crepes near Notre Dame.
I 'collect' chariots btw. At Le Petit Duc, new/old traditional biscuit shop under le canopée at Les Halles you can get Berthillon ice cream.
