|Shouldn't we taste one of everything, since we finally got here?|
Do they stand up to those in France?
|... getting a selection ready ...|
Those that come from our local Calgary pastry shops?
Or those of our own kitchens?
|... the first tray of goods ...|
Then check out the goods.
Next watch how other patrons order.
Maybe ask a few questions if you can find someone who can speak English.
Can you speak English?
Some people nod as though to say no, but out of their mouthes comes, "So-so".
Apparently all of the cream pastries cost the same amount of money.
|... the choice is beween "dry" or "cream" fillings ...|
Then the cost is done by weight.
Do you want a half kilo, a kilo, a kilo and a half?
A kilo and a half last seemed a bit excessive, as did a kilo.
|... politically incorrect ...|
Fourteen of them, and dividng each 3 ways at home gave us a taste of everything.
To up the ante, we served each other on the white glass plates that are in our kitchen.
This is the only time we have used them.
|... those sprinkles only look good, not taste good ...|
Then to go home, have a tasting party and to see if we wanted to order more.
By about the twelfth taste, my palette was getting jaded.
No matter what it was that I was tasting now, those first few bites had been the best.
|... my dream dish ...|
"I used to have one of those", said Wyona, but then Greg let a huge big board fall on it as he was moving it down from the loft. "So they aren't that useful," she said.
"At least mine isn't that useful anymore."
Greg said, "Yes, easy to break." He is the first one who mentioned it. Not her.
