    OMG the most mouth watering post to date. I want I want

  2. L-Izzle

    Thank you, you sweet and delightful and precious little thing 🙂

    This post makes me exceptionally hungry. Though, to be honest, EVERYTHINGGGGgg today makes me exceptionally hungry. I can feel every fibre of my body desperately trying to repair itself. And despite the fact that I have basically not left my bed/computer chair since I finished at 11:30 yesterday, my appetite is acting as though I am still mid-marathon. It’s quite nice to feel SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL AND SATISFIED by every morsel of food to pass my lips….but I also fear I may soon eat us out of house and home.

    Anyway, gorgeous, glorious pictures of gorgeous, glorious food by a gorgeous, glorious girl 🙂 xoxo

    ps. the tarts definitely worked wonders. Even though the chocolate and chestnut is probably my least favourite of their tarts (how can this be!? I do not know.. I just prefer their more custard-based ones which are….magical, transcendental, ethereal…..really friggin’ GOOD), it definitely did its job and I will be returning tomorrow morning for more baked goodiesssssss WOOOoooooo

    They are freakin’ gorgeous.

    Hannah I hope you know I’m going to have a hard time picking anything else when I lumber up to the PH counter. Hope the toe is starting to get better, and the codeine nausea.

  5. Agnes

    That is the most romantical macaron ever. I want to give that macaron flowers and take it on a date.

    It looks amazing … where was PH when we were last in Paris, oh 30 years ago! Clearly it’s time for another visit to Paris.

  7. Simply Life

    oh I love how colorful everything is!

  8. Laura @ Hungry and Frozen

    “Je suis tres contente!” – I love it! Those macarons looks so beautiful, I’d start to feel sorry for statues who can’t eat them too. Hope your post-surgery-ness clears up soon X

    Oh my goodness, that looks so perfect. And I am so unhappy that I’m about to head off to the dining hall, where food like this is -so- unavailable.

    And, this reminds me of the episode where Paula Deen went to France. Good tourist: Cute little Hannah walking away with a single perfect macaron. Bad tourists: Paula Deen and her husband leaving the patisserie with dozens of tarts each. Embarrassing to watch! The man at the cash register seemed to be chuckling, too.

    I just lost it.

    So delicious, delicate and gorgeous. I am so so jealous! Loved the pics too!

    Amy: See, you should have waited and done your Europe trip with me 😛

    L-Izzle: You definitely deserve all the delicious foods you can imagine/create/purchase/fit in! I have heard that Silo’s custard tarts are its forte… but my heart can’t let go of chestnuts!

    Fiona: The French definitely know how to make their food look amazing!

    Louise: All I can think is that is has to start getting better eventually! Surely, because you’ve got your family with you, you’ll be able to choose multiple treats and try them all? Please do!

    Agnes: Only if you get it home before 11pm – pastries have curfews too, you know!

    Whisperinggums: Maybe you could do a stopover before/after Spain and Germany?

    Simply Life: It definitely was colourful!

    Laura: Thank you! Luckily my high-school French was up to expressing pastry-induced emotions 🙂 (It didn’t do so well at the hospital, if I’m honest with you!)

    Lauren: But Lauren, you have unending supplies of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and raw cauliflower at your dining hall! What more could a girl ask for? And, um, I think I was more of the “bad tourist” most days in Paris, what with my leaving Monoprix with multiple boxes of amazing cookies and cheeses to be eaten in one day…

    Emily: But you have pumpkin pie! I think we’re even. 😀

  12. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    How utterly fabulous. And the two photo rule, now that is rather unusual, usually it’s either yes or no but glad to hear that you managed to charm them! 😀

  13. Vaala ◪

    Wow! Pink even has its own section! Everything is so beautiful too…how do they do it?

  14. Hannah

    Lorraine: Now if only I could work out how to *intentionally* charm men… 😛

    Vaala: They’re French, so I bet they’re just born knowing how! 😀

  15. Amy @ cookbookmaniac

    Those pretty little things deserve a lot more attention than 2 photos. Two photos my *ss. I would’ve snapped away and claimed that only two photos were taken. kikiki.

  16. Hannah

    Amy: I must admit that that thought did cross my mind, but it’s a very small boutique – there’s no way they wouldn’t have noticed!!

  18. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    it’s just.. so.. pretty

  19. Hannah

    Conor: I know! I almost couldn’t eat it…. oh, that is SUCH a lie, I never even considered not eating it.

    wow that is a princess macaron – I would join you on the bench with a macaron rather than jogging – no contest there! glad you took those photos of those amazing displays – though I get very self conscious about taking photos in shops too so am impressed you did so

    Johanna: It’s probably the one time I’m relieved I have a simple little camera and not a big fancy-schmancy one! Wish you could have joined me on the bench 🙂

  24. debbe

    That looks sooo delicious! Yum!!!

  25. Hannah

    Debbe: It really was! If only it, and Paris, weren’t halfway across the world again… Sigh.

  26. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Yummm. I love me some raspberries.

  27. Hannah

    Amber: Me too. Up there with my favourite fruits, for sure!
