November City Daily Photo Theme Day: Ephemeral

Biscuits de sucre en neige, La Varenne Versailles
So we're in November and the first of the month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo blogging community. Ephemeral is this month's theme. Some of you probably remember the fabulous biscuits and sweets shop La Varenne which VDP had shown you just after its opening in May. Well, these little meringues, which would have been served at the table of kings and queens at the palace (the recipe is the one of François Pierre de la Varenne's cookbook dated 1651), are the ancestors of macarons. They did not last long yesterday! So so ephemeral... Oh and the shots below are better views of the inside of the shop, because VDP had kind of messed up the moon in the May post! To view all takes on the theme, click here and happy November (and Allsaints today) everyone!

Nous voilà en novembre, miz du (le mois noir en breton). Le premier du mois est jour de thème dans la communauté des blogueurs City Daily Photo à laquelle appartient VDP, et le thème ce mois-ci, c'est "éphémère". Quoi de plus éphémère que ces biscuits de sucre en neige de chez La Varenne, l'inventeur de saveurs, que VDP vous présentait juste après son ouverture en mai dernier. Ces petites meringues sont les ancêtres des macarons, dont la recette a été puisée dans le livre "le cuisinier françois" de François Pierre de la Varenne, édité en 1651 et elles n'ont pas fait long feu chez VDP hier. Les photos ci-dessous sont de meilleures vue du fond de la boutique, dont VDP avait raté la prise de vue dans le billet de mai. Pour voir les interprétations du thème dans le monde entier, cliquez ici ! VDP vous souhaite un bon miz du et une bonne journée de Toussaint !

Ahhhh! I would happily settle for a macaron and can guarantee it wouldn't last long. Love your moon and window shots.

So tasty! I can understand well why they wouldn't last for long!

One sweet moment is all they would have survived with me Ciel :) delicious ephemeral moment!

Sharon Anck said...

Perfect choice for the theme. They would have only lasted a moment at my house. That display is stunning.

Gunn said...

The same here with us in Stavanger; they would not have lasted for long.... :-)

Lowell said...

I would have to take special precautions to stay away from this place! Yikes! I gained five pounds just looking at your photos. And my weight gain is not ephemeral!

SRQ said...

Clever interpretation. Looks yummy!

Rob Siemann said...

Genial!

Stuart hat mir die Worte von der Zunge genommen :)

Merisi said...

Oh yes, that is one example of ephemeral we all would like to be part of the disappearing act!

Halcyon said...

A very creative choice! Most sweets are ephemeral once they come into contact with me. ;-)

William Kendall said...

Very tempting, Ciel!

Loree said...

They look like they will melt in your mouth.

A childhood dream come true ! Willie Wonka eat your heart out. :-)

How could they last long? They look fantastic!

Yes, these little meringues don't last very long. Ephemeral.
