Les Patisseries de Paris
In Paris, everything looks like dessert. Or perhaps this captivating little film only makes it seem so. How can you resist “It’s hard not to love a city where there is a patisserie on nearly every block, where pastries are sold all day long to people who never get fat.”
Here’s your chance to be a sweet-seeking boulevardier. Find your muse in butter, cream and sugar. Just sit back and savor those delectable little mouth watering macaroons, eclairs, cream puffs, meringues and every sugary confection your little sweet tooth fairy can come up with — to the accompaniment, no less, of Cole Porter. Bon Appetit!
