Gifts from Paris

Stephane, my friend from work, went to Paris and other parts of Europe during the Christmas holiday. He was nice enough to bring me back some gifts (food gifts, my favorite!):


Stroopwafels are waffles with a light caramel in the center:


They’re crispy and sweet but not too sweet. Good to pair with a light green tea.

The poilane biscuits had beautiful origami-like packaging:


The box was filled with shortbread-like cookies:


Also great with green tea:


Stephane is a very generous friend and was very nice to bring back chocolates and biscuits for me and Ken. He said we should share the stroopwafel and the poilane biscuits but we should keep the chocolates to ourselves! There are only two of each flavor so you have one to sample and one to really enjoy:


The passion fruit was my favorite – they are all filled with a little extra sweetness or crunch and were all delicious. I shared with my mom when she came to visit, but no one else!

Thank you, Stephane, for being a wonderful friend!

My Dutch friend introduced me to stroopwafels 2 summers ago – they’re so delicious!
