On our last morning in Paris we went to E. Dehillerin (the cookware shop where Julia Child bought equipment) and I found a 6-hole muffin tin and a 6-hole madeleine tin – I got rather excited not only about my purchases but also about the amazing copper pans to buy. It’s worth a trip just to gaze longingly at them. Afterwards we headed to Pierre Herme to purchase macarons. The theme this season is Les Jardins so there are some interesting flavours. My personal favourite is the passionfruit and dark chocolate. They survived my trip home and I shared them with friends.
