Onsite sketching part deux - Ta da!
BEAR choisie La Maison du Chocolat on 1018 Madison Ave. And BEAR choses the eclair caramel ($6.50). He is partial to caramel so what can I do..?
I LOVE the striations on this pastry - for me they are the sign of a classy eclair, though I have no proof of this.
Inside La Maison du Chocolat's eclair the creme caramel is...creamy and contrasts nicely with the caramel icing on top. Why don't I have the correct words to describe this to you? At least you can head here without traveling 3000 miles
BEAR studies the recipes in LMDC's chocolate book while I doodle - he has not given up on b--king like some people...ahem
I'm sitting in an alcove just above the chocolate shop so I can hear bits of conversation wafting by...
"Chocolate is the modern miracle cure for everything!
"There is a lot of giggling in response
\"You make people happy here don't you?"
He says, "Yes we do." smiling.
La Maison du Chocolat is a little piece of Paris just waiting to tempt you. They have awfully nice chocolate classes too
La Maison's windows are dependably witty and very Parisienne
Oh why didn't I get their terrific chocolate macaron? I'm kicking myself a bit (and BEAR too). Don't miss it! We will simply have to return for more sketching at La Maison - Life can be tough sometimes..non?
BONJOUR ONSITE SKETCHING at LMDC!
