And that's how the cookie crumbles: Jean-Paul Hevin Paris

I have a friend, whose travel advice and culinary expertise I've learnt to trust over the years. Her name is Olimpia and she and her mother have the following amazing blog; Milly and Olly

Olly blogged about her favourite cookie (The Sable), here. Not just any cookie. Made by specialist chocolatier Jean-Paul Hévin. Only four are baked a day and only in Paris. Since reading her post a few months ago I've been perturbed. I just couldn't stop thinking about it. I tried to find comfort in the crumbly embrace of another; but no one else would do. 

So I finally tried it. Problem was, I also tried three other cakes along with it. Each one more sensational than the last. In fact we gobbled them up so fast that I didn't have time to take a photo.

Trust me when I tell you that the cheesecake (light and fluffy like marshmallow) and the chocolate tarte are exceptional. Fireworks.

Luckily I don't live in Paris or my rear end would resemble a caboose.

p.s Sable was also damn good.
