paris: patisserie tour

while in paris i happened upon a journey of a different kind, a patisserie tour through st germain des pres.

jenny is a friend from home living in paris and has turned a favourite pastime into a great weekend outing for others to enjoy. 

st germain was charming to walk through in it's own right but the patisseries and boulangeries were one of a kind, state of the art wonders with treats and creations beyond belief - foie gras and truffle oil macaroons anyone?

if you're planning a trip to paris, jenny's tour 'left bank treats and eats' is a truly enlightening way to explore another side of paris
