It occurs to me that I’m not very familiar regarding the history of Persia (Iran), nor Persian people. However, when I think and say the name, “Persia”, it evokes beautiful ideas, even some childhood fantasies. A story of Aladdin’s flying carpet, Persian cats, genie in a bottle and wishes coming true. As a young girl how I envied those beautiful Persian women, their flawless fair skin in contrast with their long flowing dark hair. I’m still waiting to have both plus a few wishes come true.
Persia, gives a mystical sense don’t you think?
Patisserie has in fact brought me back to mystical Persia. The best quality pistachios come from Iran, the former Persia. I find myself in the 15th arrondissement in Paris (earlier I Googled: Persian ingredients + epicerie + paris) in the Iranian epicerie district. What a discovery!
It is truly a trip to Iran. I felt like a major tourist. I’ve never seen so much choice for pistachios! I’m spoilt for choice. I’m seeing rare and precious ingredients such as dried rose petals and buds, sweet delicacies some of which I recognise but mostly I’m in foreign land. Now my mind is flowing with ideas. Change game plan.
MadCharlotte is in Persia, and is here to stay, for a while. Turning fantasy into reality is the first wish to make come true, that is, after installing a GPS on the flying carpet.
Persian eclairs: Iranian pistachios and rose petals decorate a pistachio cream filled eclair. Chocolate garniture is French couverture chocolate.
MadCharlotte Marshmallows or Guimauve en francaise have a delightful squishy-squidgginess which comes from making an Italian meringue and then swirling through coconut puree. Very mellow mallows! Coconut shavings enrobe these pillow delights.
Did I hear you say…. ‘Ouh Là Là!’
So exciting! MadCharlotte website is up and running. Here’s just a taste. For more, http://www.madcharlotte.fr
MadCharlotte marshmallow ” Guinguettes” collection! Inspired by les Guinguettes popping up all over Paris and Parisian suburbs over the summer, particularly my favourite called La Javel located by the River Seine.
Raspberry marshmallow Guinguettes are fabulously social. Let the cabaret begin! Let’s dance! Let’s drink!
Just bring yourself, and don’t forget friends, and let’s have a fantastic time!
WIKIPEDIA: “Guinguettes were popular drinking establishments located in the suburbs of Paris and other cities in France. Guinguettes would also serve as restaurants and, often, as dance venues. The origin of the term comes from guinguet, indicating a sour white light local wine. The 1750 Dictionnaire de la langue français, defined Guinguette as a “Small cabaret in the suburbs and the surrounds of Paris, where craftsmen drink in the summer and on Sundays and on Festival days. This term is new.”
