Unbelievably amazing patisserie

Here's a "macaronade" from a small patisserie in Versailles. Yes, that is gold leaf on the garnish. The golden shell is actually just cardboard, but the whole base of the pastry is chocolate dipped. Its a good thing the excesses of Versailles are a thing of the past.

Oh my gosh! This is just too tasty, my stomach is growling. One day.. I'll try Parisian Macarons. I love your blog! I'm an Aussie living in Vancouver, really enjoying the down to earth Aussie perspection on food and travel, gonna use that Anzac recipe tomorrow :)

Hi Mariya,
Go go go on the ANZACs, a very earthy recipe. Hope you can get golden syrup! I went to Vancouver once - lovely city, and feels a lot like Melbourne.
