Fauchon en France

See the shiny floor? Bet your bathroom floor's not that shiny. Mine certainly isn't.

What you're looking at is the floor of Le Meurice in Paris, where the floors gleam so much that it makes perfect sense to put your fancy Fauchon jelly and marmalade stand directly on top of them and take a picture, fully confident that even if your stand fell over, and all the jellies spilled on to the floor, it would be so clean that you could just lick everything up!

Or at least that was my interpretation.

The point of the post, however, was to sing the virtues of confiture de lait. Despite having once lived in Paris, I had never come across it before. It's sorta like milk meets other words, a lot like dulce de leche, but I think the latter is a wee bit tastier. A bit too sweet for me for breakfast, but it'd be great on a croissant in the middle of the day.

I'll bet that floor is a blast when it's wet.
