Parisian pastries - Macarons!
Everytime I had been to Paris, I still never managed to have a macaron. Can't believe that. I've seen them here but they are also really expensive. So my first was from our local bakery and raspberry flavoured. They come in all sorts of flavours and are lovely pastel colours. But they are also so yummy. If you haven't had one, they are basically pure sugar and meringue so just one goes a long way but people tend to get a bag of them. Since I also got a fraise pastry at the same time, one was more than enough. I did sneak it in before dinner, though.
