BONNE ANNÉE





WHY THIS IS THE PERFECT NEW YEAR'S SHOT
To me, it says

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

Smile a lot?
Try baby shampoo?
Remember to layer your cloths?
Always think sensible shoes?

Yes, all that, and
it SCREAMS

it's 2015

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!

THE BEST COOKIES IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!






LES MEILLEURS GATEAUX DE LA PLANÈTE


The BRIZELÉS are made entirely artisanally in Lebanon. (Soon they will also be produced in Dubai. Yes, Dubai.) 
They are beautiful, light and airy,  and so addictive!
Paper thin wafers with a melt in your mouth sweetness! The ones we were given are "Walnuts and Cinnamon". There are however 6 other kinds including cumin, olive and thyme.
They are the brain child of a man passionate about cooking, who started making these in his kitchen in Beirut, Lebanon a few years ago and is now selling them everywhere over there but also on line! (His charming son Omar kindly and very generously brings them back to Paris during his frequent trips to Beirut for his extremely grateful friends.)
You should not hesitate to order some for one single second

That's Papa Kamel Cabbabé, there, on the box.

Editor's note: I was not compensated for this post in any way…well, if you don't count the boxes of Brizelés which have delighted us so, I could not resist raving to you about them.




au revoir.
