Bohemian French toast chocolate sandwiches

I am sitting on the pavement outside the Café de la Paix in a pleasant tumult of people recounting to one another all sorts of important things.

Contentious chocolate chip cookies

When the devil’s craving for fresh cookies crawls up the tiny veins in your head, don’t ever listen to your inner advocate, who gives an inspiring speech on “self-control and the cookie jar.” Just give in and behave like all the great achievements of humankind have been fulfilled: go for it all the way... enjoy!

My one and only cocoa Crêpe Suzette

Through the tears that fill his eyes the flames are breaking into thousands of sparkling colors. Quietly he comforts himself and whispers: “You are not going to be mine, Rome, but you won’t belong to anyone else.”

Control freak chocolate spread

Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to present the precise structure of the chronicle of lust: in the middle of the night, returning from a party and swearing a thousand times that it’s just a touch, simply to feel, on the tip of the tongue, only once, and then giving in, full of longing, and disappointing yourself and deciding, without wavering or doubt, that now the technique for abstaining is absolutely clear—there will be no more next time, and I mean it for real.

Intimate Hungarian crêpes

Shortly after it grows dark, I enter our secret place and sit in the corner, the spot that moves only us.

Max and Moritz profiteroles

The scent of warm dough mixed with brown caramel. Metal trays overflowing with golden pastries on the wire shelving at the window are winking to you to come in. The bakery is eternal, the baker is ageless. But Max and Moritz are at the counter standing in the queue like everybody else and buying their favorite childhood sweet, exactly like we always wanted them to be.
