The Food

Foie gras on a stick, dipped in poppy seeds, then spun in cotton candy - surprisingly good!
The wedding cake - a custard texture with strawberries covered in fondant.

More hors d'oeuvres - I think we tasted every single one before moving on to the fabulous dinner.
It was no coincidence that I gained 10 pounds the first month that I studied abroad in Paris. We ate some truly amazing food last week, especially at Alex and Arthur's wedding festivities. They took great care in choosing the menu, and Arthur put enormous thought into pairing each course to a different glass of wine. Discussion about French food is always enough to send us to the internet in search of cheap flights to France, but this vacation took it to a whole new level. Amazing.

Other than the foie gras, it all looks incredible! And the cheese shot is enough to make me swoon. Lovely.

Glad you are back safe and sound.
I think I just gained a few pounds just looking at the pictures.
