300 km from where
you'd thought you'd be
the evening before
The morning sweetened
with rock candy
and brightened by sunshine
A pot of Earl Grey
and what is - for my taste -
the best croissant
in the whole wide world,
Zauner's Ischler Kipferl:
Golden buttery brioche layers
rolled with roasted ground hazelnuts.
Austrian pâtissiers are masters at
this kind of pastry,
is one of the best I have ever tasted
a repost, and I hope you won't mind, sitting down again,
in this beautiful place, and letting time slip by without looking at the clock.
I repost this particular post because lately I have been particularly nostalgic for a morning visit to Zauner's in Bad Ischl.
I even contemplated getting into the car.
After all, Bad Ischl is but a three hours drive away. ;-)
A wonderful day to all of you, and thank you for taking
this imaginary trip down memory lane with me.
