Dessert me!

If anyone's in Zagreb area, from today on Good Food is launching a line of my desserts. Good Food is basically healthy fast food, something like Chopped in NYC. It's super cool, very well designed and I got an amazing opportunity to create a line of desserts in a jar called Good Sweets.
I must say it is the first time in Croatia that we have such a high quality product for a larger mass. I can tell you I am using Callebaut 70,4% chocolate ;)

So, if you're around, stop by!
You can view their web site (in Croatian) HERE

Above anything else, I am wishing you a happy and healthy New Year.
This one will rock it ;)

Paris, o la la!

I don't even know where to start. I was in Paris....17 years ago? Yes. I was 7 when my parents took me to Disneyland. Man was I excited, it was unforgettable. We only took a short trip to Paris and the only thing I remember was the view from the Eiffel tower, Louvre and Mona Lisa.
It was time to refresh my memory. I loved the city but I felt it was quite unsafe, and if you don't speak French, forget about getting a job.

Let me present to you my favorite snapshots of Paris, 17 years later.

If I could, I would've bought all of these little cups and kitchen gadgets. I ended up just getting my parents a ceramic knife.

Patrick Roger - THE chocolate man. Best chocolate I had so far.  Depending on the season he has a chocolate showpiece in his shops. Isn't it so super awesome?

His daughter :)

Mouin Rouge (Paris is hella expensive, will do Moulin next time)

Sadaharu Aoki - Fantastic Wasabi and Green tea macarons (loved the wasabi but not a fan of green tea)

Oh Pierre...Mr. Herme really didn't let me down, I was beyond impressed. 7euro a dessert? Totally worth it. 

My favorite Pierre's work. The absolute praline mille feuille. 

How could I leave Paris without having a crepe?! With Nutella of course (It had a funky shape too)

McDonald's in Paris...Yea...

In Louvre...

....I found my man :)

The one and only. Quite stunning. 

The ultimate croissant. They are practically good in most bakeries. I was in heaven. 

I was in love with Champs Elysee's Christmas market. 

Mmmmm prosciutto, cheese and baguette sandwiches!!

Everyone rides bicycles...

I loved the architecture. Loved. 


Montmartre - I honestly felt like on a movie set. 

Arnaud Larher

Choclate macarons? Yes. 

Patisserie des Reves - the most beautiful shop

Looka at that lamination!

Kouign Aman - the king of laminated pastries. 

The idyllic Paris 

Cheeeeeeeese (and what kind of cheese. You know when you have so much to choose from you don't know what to do with yourself?!)

From Paris with love
