I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again ; there is simply no place like Paris when it comes to delectable sweet temptations.
In fact, one of the main reasons why I don’t see myself living anywhere else (although I wouldn’t refuse some LA sunshine or New York buzz!) is simply because French Pastry does it for me : VISUALLY!!
No, I’m unfortunately not a sweet tooth kind of gal (and yes, we do exist!), but I have a visual soft spot for colorfully presented pastries & desserts.
So First stop; Ladurée, and the best Réligieuse* à la rose on earth!
But first; what exactly is a “religieuse”?
It’s actually supposed to resemble a nun (yes, I know, I thought the exact same thing!)
It’s comprised of a puff pastry shell, rose flavored cream, whipped icing cream and fresh raspberries. And the ingredients work perfectly well together exploding in your mouth like a sweet candy floss.
Not only is it the prettiest pastry in the Ladurée series, it’s unique rose flavor will have you on your knees praying for more.
