La Pâtisserie de la Semaine and Summer

The pâtisserie of the week is the Bolero.  It's covered in a thin coat of raspberry sauce with two sugared almonds on top. The inside is an almond-vanilla mouse with a raspberry compote inside and it sits on a thin almond wafer. It's the same concept as the Zephyr à la violette but this had bold flavors whereas the zephry had a subtle and unexpected flavor combination.

Here is my bolero all wrapped up and hidden away in it's little to-go box. I've never mentioned the nice way pâtisseries bundle up little individual pastries to go. They nearly look gift wrapped.

Previously featured pastries:
Zephyr à la violette
Italian Chocolate-Meringue

Tarte aux pommes
Tarte Amandine aux Framboises

Summer is here at last....
Late afternoon sun on the pastel-colored buildings along the Saône river

People sitting and walking along the Rhône river - just down a bit further from this spot are all the floating bars and restaurants which have been packed full of people out enjoying the first real days of summer.

The raspberry thing looks like a space ship. The scenery is very pretty. Long live summer!
