Le Gateau Francais~ Missing Paris Day


This was 'The Chef's' father's favorite French cake while visiting us in Paris a few years ago. I can't even tell you the name. Any readers out there who can fill me in on the exact title of this beauty?!

It wasn't long until he was buying one every day and occasionally deciding it might be ok to just skip lunch or dinner and simply have the cake. He was famously blessed with a sweet tooth and nowhere was that more true than in Paris.

Across from our apartment once stood a charming little boulangerie selling all varieties of bread, pastries, cakes and chocolates. Many of our guests, including 'The Chef's' parents, would often sit in front of the window and watch, entertained by the comings and goings of our favorite little bakery on the corner. Alas, it is now gone. Another bank sits in its place. Maybe I'll do a post with a few photos of the bakery that once was.

It says right on top of the cake, it's a fraisier.
