Angelina : The perfect Parisian tea break you should never miss.

It is time for a restaurant review and if you follow my blog, you will see that so far I have introduced you to some unique places where you can have some typically French gastronomical delights. But during a visit to Paris, one also needs some pit-stops, a short break in a tea room to recharge oneself before heading out to explore this wonderful city. If you are looking for a historic, typically Parisian, one of a kind tea-room, then Angelina is for you. Angelina is also a brand in itself. Whether you like it or not, you should visit it at least once during your visit to Paris. It is more than just a break, it is something that should also be in your “must see,, must taste” list.

So this time I thought of making something typically Italian, which is also quite popular outside Italy, the Pesto sauce.

But how about a bit of change, a refreshing fruity drink to kick off the summers, but a bit uncommon and purely going French with it. Speaking for myself, I prefer white wine to red in the summers, mainly when the wine is chilled. So here is a drink made with a typical French sparkling white wine called the Clairette de Die.
