Feeling hungry? You soon will be after indulging in this delicious new book Sweet Paris by New Zealander, now London-based photographer, Michael Paul. Learning to waltz as a young teenager at his dance class to the whimsical strains of Cole Porter’s ‘I Love Paris’; this song became the soundtrack to Michael’s future love affairs, not only with his dance partners, but also with the notion of Paris. Later in life, he visited Paris for the first time and fell in love with the reality and was soon lured by the legendary tea salons, patisseries and boulangeries offering a wealth of sweet delights. In Sweet Paris, Michael describes the stories behind these mouth-watering creations, how they are made and his suggestions for where to find the best in Paris. He also includes a variety of recipes for both classic and modern indulgences such as mocha macarons, chocolate éclairs, madeleines and crème brulée. This book is a feast for both the eyes and the palate. Sweet Paris is published by Hardie Grant, £20, and available at all good bookstores and online here.
