The Best Caramel I’ve Ever Tried
Yesterday I ventured across town to take a look at the covered food market Marches Des Enfant Rouges. On my way over I stumbled on to one of the places on my list, Jacque Genin. I went into what may have been the most beautifully groomed store. It felt like a top art gallery in Chelsea. The sales women were a bit intimidating but I asked to try one of each of the caramels. And David Lebovitz was right. Somehow they managed to put a lot of butter into each of these suckers. I want to learn to make these. I will learn to make these.
When I tasted one on the street, I had to stop walking for a minute and just let out a groan. Absolutely amazing. I didn’t try the chocolate but it looked pretty INSANE as well.
