Valentine’s Day is another ordinary day in the city of love. There are candle light dinners every night, wine, couples cuddling and flowers in every nook and cranny every day of the year. As per usual, I stopped by Rue de Lévis – a small bustling street selling fruits, vegetables, meats, baked goods and my favorite tulips. My valentine got me a bouquet of pink roses and we got ourselves a baguette and cheeses for a nice brunch. Everyday has the possibility for sweetness. Spread l’amour tous les jours.
Oh eclairs. That vanilla cream filling gushing out of a choux-doughed pastry, topped with pecan crunch? Oui! Of course, I had to have three.
I stopped by Bourse metro station at the Fabrique Eclair de Genie and picked out strawberry, lemon tart and pecan flavors. Not a big fan of eclairs, but these always surprise me with their subtle and decadent taste. They’re as good as they look. Plus, this gave me an idea. I had no clue what to get my friends for Valentine’s Day, but maybe personalized eclairs would be a good present no?
