While visiting Nimes I heard the story that during the 5 day Feria people were known to order a meter long of Pastis.
Well, besides coordinating Menu for Hope European leg, our American in Paris, David Lebovitz, tells us that All he wants for Christmas is 3 Feet of Chocolates couched in a long green box a la 'Tiffany'.
The person behind that extravaganza is a young Chocolatier named Patrick Roger who got the public' s eye with his Chocolate Sculptures.
I suggest you pay a visit to the Patrick Roger website. Amongst other things, he offers a Video on the importance of the land, Photos of his sculptures and even Wallpapers and Confectionery themed E-Cards of Frogs, Hypos and more that you can share with your friends.
All this really made my day.
Send me one please!
