When I first started this blog I mentioned the "pastry hunt" that my daughter Holly and I devised in which we would try at least 5 new pâtisseries on each trip. In April, chère amie Marie and I met that challenge, all in the name of scientific research, bien sûr!

At Dalloyau in the Marais, we sat down for un café, several macarons, and a l'Opera for which they are famous... Should I say that it was our 4th (yes, 4th) pâtisserie of the day and it was only 10:30am? Much more to come but I thought you would enjoy this sumptuous little item in the window. Miam-miam!
