Dehillerin - My Toy Store in Paris!

The first time I came to Paris as an adult, I carried with me a small clipping from Bon Appétit Magazine extolling the wonderments to be found at E. Dehillerin.  My first purchases were some small copper sauté pans and a stock pot.  After almost 10 years they are still my favorites.  Almost every trip to Paris includes a pilgrimage to the motherland!  Just to wander into the belly of the store and look at the outrageously huge pots and pans and all of the little tools for every job conceivable in the kitchen. This last visit to Paris in January I indulged myself with a beautifully shiny copper egg white bowl.  I have been drooling over this little beauty for almost a year.  Each time I whipped egg whites, I thought to myself just how much better the task would be if I had that pinky copper bowl.  Et voilà...it is now mine!

Baden-Baden Germany

The night I arrived in Baden-Baden there was absolutely no snow on the ground.  Huge fluffy star-like flakes had just began to slowly float to the ground.  But since every weather report called for clear and sunny skies for the next week, I did not take it seriously. Upon awaking the next morning, the village had been magically transformed by the snow.  Not coming from a region known for its snow, I was entranced.  The entire day, I walked back and forth from the Abbey to the village through the park and next to the river enjoying the wintery scene.  I must say it was extremely cold and I was overjoyed to return to the sunny and warm south of France, but what a beautiful weekend in Baden-Baden.
