My Paris trip is coming up in May, so what better way to get ready than by practicing eating and drinking like a Parisian? I couldn’t think of a better way either. 


My favourite discovery so far comes from Diane, A Broad’s blog. It’s this unbelievably thick, decadent Parisian Hot Chocolate. I seriously have been making this once a week this winter. More if I have homemade bread for dunking.
