France: dessert bucket-list.


In France, you will never find yourself short of perfect desserts to end a good meal. The only thing you have to worry about is the calories.



1. Mille-feuille
Also known as a “Napoleon cake”, this elegant multi-layered crackly thin pastries sandwiched with delightful cream may just be the highlight of your dinner.

3. Opera cake
If you are a coffee-addict, you will absolutely love this coffee-soaked cake heavily layered with coffee buttercream and chocolate ganache.

4. Macarons.
I don't think I have to tell you what these are. These tiny colourful bite-size treats will make you smile ear to ear!
Where to eat: Pierre Hermé macarons or Maison Ladurée macarons, Paris

5. Tarte Tatin 
How do I put this... perhaps an upside down Fruit pie.

6. Creme Brulee
An all time favorite French dessert perfect to end a good french dinner. Thin hard caramelized surface at the top and creamy soft custard below, this is the boom.

9. Clafoutis
A baked French dessert filled with black cherries (occasionally some other fruits).

10. Crêpes
Crêpe is a streets food in France. You may think that you've tried Crepes a million times before... but if you never try one in Paris, you've never tried one. Classic: beurre et sucre (butter and sugar).

11. Far Breton
It is similar to a Clafoutis, commonly made with prunes or raisins.

12. Ispahan
This is definitely one of those most beautiful desserts in the world. This delicate dessert is a startling combination of rose, raspberries and lychees, topped with a rose petal.
