Seriously though, there’s something so satisfying about eating something that’s both incredibly beautiful and delicious.

Speaking of beautiful, check out these artistic Parisian window displays!

One of my favorite places we ate at was Toraya – a Japanese tea house/French patisserie.  The green tea hot chocolate was amazing (think of a chocolate green tea latte), and the macarons (soy, green tea, black sesame and red bean flavored) were so delicious.  French-Japanese is such an interesting fusion!  I really like the combination of comfort food and clean flavors.

I also loved looking around all of the specialty food stores.  They were all so beautiful (and expensive).  My favorite was probably Hediard.  They had amazing displays of chocolates, fruit pates and wines…but oddly enough I thought their produce display was the most interesting.  It was so colorful, and I couldn’t identify a bunch of the fruits/vegetables.  Definitely inspired me to be more adventurous in 2010!
