We’ve been back to Pierre Hermé, it’s hard to stay away…!
As the weather is so beautiful we decided to try the ice cream – I’ve been wanting to for a while, especially as it has such a fantastic name. Miss Gla Gla: ice cream in French is ‘glace’, and ‘gla gla’ is what tiny French children (or cartoon characters!) say when they are cold.
I chose Ispahan, which was originally the macaroon flavour which contributed to making him famous: rose, litchi and raspberry.
What can I say?
It’s sandwiched between 2 thin layers of macaroon and needless to say is amazingly delicious. Sitting on a shady bench on the square by St Sulpice Church on a Saturday afternoon and eating this was a real treat.
Miss Gla Gla is available all summer and there are several fantastic flavours to choose from, so don’t miss out!
