As you may know, I was in France last week on vacation.
To be precise, in the Loire Valley.
Everything was wonderful!
The people, the châteaux, and of course, the food.
Here are some of my photographs:
Montrichard has some of the sweetest pâtisseries.
(literally and figuratively)
Apple tartelette, mango mousse, Paris-Brest & religieuse au chocolat.
Our maid ate some of it. No really she did!
Apricot tartelette, gland & éclair au café.
Not pictured but still eaten: mini brioche & meringue.
L'Orangerie - Château de Chenonceau
We had the most wonderful lunch at this restaurant while visiting a castle.
The restaurant is called "L'Orangerie" and is situated in the gardens.
