I had my first Madeleine in February 2003 in Paris. Having recently moved to London (2003), I have not really experienced the cold, being from sunny Pretoria, the only real memories I had of the cold was early winter mornings on the Netball field, brushing the frost of the grass, but by 12pm you would bask in the 22c sunshine.
Nothing could really prepare me for February in Europe. Brrr, anyway back to Paris, we were trying to get away from the cold by making lots of coffee stops. I remember one of these we received petit madeleines free with our cafe au lait. Bliss!
We have joined the AirBnB craze with a converted guest suite and cottage here in Cape Town. I am very excited at the prospect of feeding the guests and you can expect these little bundles of delight when you check in! Come and visit us here under the mountain!
