Some Important Things to Remember When Visiting Paris

Dear Friends,
When visiting Paris, there are some very important things to remember. One, the very most important phrase you must know in French is "à emporter". It means "to go" and that means that whatever wonderful, yummy thing you are about to order, you will be able to take with you and eat in whatever wonderful, yummy park or garden you may choose! And another important thing to remember is that the House of Dalloyau has invented a very cute, very sweet little "to go" box for carrying four of their delicious macarons anywhere you might want to eat them! This extra adorable box has been given the ULTRA elegant name "Eat Bag"(!), but nevermind that! As they describe it, this is the perfect packaging for when you want to "succumb to the desires of irresistible macarons ... " And when you hear about their two new flavors for spring, succumb you will!:

-abricot et riz-soufflé - filled with unctuous puree of apricot and topped with crispy puffed chocolate rice
-fraise - filled with fresh strawberry compote and topped with bright green shards of crunchy pistachios

Plus, as Grace Kelly said to Jimmy Stewart in "Rear Window" when she went to change into her beautiful nightgown: "A preview of coming attractions...", Dalloyau's special macaron flavors for summer will be melon and peach melba!


  1. Oh My~~
    I will be there! Love the box! I'm crazy... I will buy things sometimes just for the cute boxes! This on is filled with our favorite delights to have with our cup of tea~
    Thanks for sharing! Have a Beautiful Weekend!

  2. Janet,
    It is cute, isn't it? But after the purple poetry of "succumb to the desires of irresistible macarons ... ", I had to giggle at the decidedly un-poetic name "Eat Bag"!!! And I don't think it's crazy to buy things for the packaging at all! I still have all the boxes, bags and whatever of everything we bought last year in Paris!
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend too!
