London and Paris bites

Rummaging through my pics, I thought to begin a catalog of my food pics. This section is under my Daily Bread menu.  I will try to remember what I thought of the bites I had throughout time until now.

My love food began after my recovery from CDiff, when I could eat spaghetti sauce once again.  My awareness to food was life.  I correlated much to living to being able to enjoy food. Not just to slam down your throat to eat, but to truly appreciate it. By the grace of God, I know my new outlook towards food was forever changed. 

For this post, I’ll begin with pics from my 40th birthday trip to London and Paris.  Hope you enjoy!

Laduree on the Champs Elysee. Nowhere like it.  A must see even if you just buy one macaron.  All the care they put into these cookies is out of this world. It’s too bad you can’t get them in the States.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our first Parisian meal.  I wish I wrote down the name of this cafe, but I didn’t.  Plainly, it was chicken and mashed potatoes. Steak and fries. BUT it wasn’t plain at all. Delicious and super savory!! There were multiple flavors going on in each bite.

This Patisserie was right near our hotel.  Filled with fresh baked pastries. Exactly what you would expect to find on your first day.  I not only get excited about the pastry itself, but also the way the shop keeper decorates their bakery.  Every detail counts.

This photo below is a little out of place because it’s the only one from this stop.   It was taken at Galleries Lafayette.  There’s a whole floor dedicated to beautiful food from all over the world.  I snapped this picture and then was told to stop taking pictures.  Not noticing there was a big sign that said “Please no pictures!”.   This was their spice section. 

This gelato is from the famous Amorino.

 

 

 

 

 

Latin District.  It’s right near Notre Dame.  We went twice while there.  My husband really enjoyed all their offerings.  We experienced fondue and delicious warm bread in one restaurant.  You can find almost every food in this section of Paris.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 London.

Unfortunately, I do not have many pics of the food we ate in London.   It wasn’t because the food wasn’t good, it’s just that it slipped my mind.

For sure, here is a pic of Fish and Chips.  I mean, how could I not get a pic of this??!!

Harrods.  In Harrods, I was surprised to find a floor of food.  Only because I thought it was mainly fashion.  But was it spectacular!  I apologize my pics at this time are a bit fuzzy.

 

 

 

 

 

My husband and I enjoyed some seafood at this one stand.  You sit on a stool right in front of the chef and he serves your meal right to you. It was fresh and tasty!!  They have a whole candy section as well.  Being a chocolate lover, you bet I bought some to go treats!!! Eating there was an experience.
