No. 162: France, London-style
I’m traveling to London and environs again to lend support to Button as she auditions for more Musical Theatre programs and to spend time with the much missed Kitcat in Epsom.
I feel like I haven’t been in Paris forever and I have really been missing my life in France. Lucky for me, London seems to (secretly) love the French, as much as I do, as every time I turn around, I seem to run into a little bit of France—London-style, i.e. a bit on the larger (and sometimes slightly cheekier) side of the scale.
As I’ve mentioned before, London is the sixth largest French city in the world with more than 400,000 Frenchies making their home here—in fact, there are more French in London than in Bordeaux.
Here’s a glimpse of why I’m feeling right at home this weekend.
These pastries are all at least twice the size of their compatriots in France…but, bigger is not necessarily better…
Maison Ladurée looks just about the same, although with a much smaller selection at this one…
