La Vie En Rose

Ever since I picked up this book a couple weeks ago, I haven't been able to put it down. It's a recipe book from the Rose Bakery in Paris, called Breakfast, Lunch, Tea, and it is delightful! I haven't made anything from it yet, but I keep flipping through and admiring the beautiful photographs and type. Check out that cover!

My absolute favorite picture in the book is of the tea-time counter, filled with scones, breads and biscuits. It looks like they change the offerings on this counter all throughout the day, serving pizzas and salads at lunch, etc. Don't you just wish you could have tea there every day?


And check out this awesome video review of the café, which is all in French and oh-so-perfect.

I got HUNGRY watching the café video.

So much so, that I surely would have just picked up that veggie pizza wrap looking thing with my fingers to eat it rather than shuffling about the French way with knife and fork....

Nice post!
