Parisian Autumn Treats to Make and Enjoy

August 30, 2020
Ahh, autumn! Is there a season more relaxing? Hardly! While summer calls for outdoor fun and seaside merriment, autumn is best spent at home. Cuddled up with your loved ones or strolling the streets to catch the colorful leaves. There's something so dreamy about this season, whether it's the golden sunsets, the delicious seasonal fruits, or the cool breezes. Autumn calls for a handful of treats as well, better paired with a nice cup of coffee or some warm, freshly-brewed tea. Here in Paris, there are some treats worth enjoying at this time, but it's more rewarding if you make them yourself!

Imagine enjoying this treat in a cafe while people stroll around the leaves-ladened cobble-stone streets! Dreamy, right?

But here in Paris, it's best enjoyed once autumn is here. The type of after-meal treat that pairs well with a glass of wine. And when you add chocolate into the mix, it becomes even more heavenly! The lightness of its texture with the richness of the chocolate makes for the right antidote to a bad day. Kids can pair it with milk while adults would probably prefer to enjoy it with their finest dessert wine.

Dark Chocolate Truffles

Dark choclate truffles are the type of fancy treat that you'd expect from the finest pastry shops in Paris. Packed in an elegant box and tied up with a sparkling bow, you can just imagine them displayed on a Parisian window during the holidays. But in reality, dark chocolate truffles are best enjoyed during autumn, when the cold isn't as intense as winter. The richness in one bite is enough to warm you up, so much so you might not need a cup of coffee to gulp it down with.

Tarte Tatin

Apples are undeniably the fruits of the autumn season. Why do you think apple-picking is a popular Thanksgiving game in the US? These crimson-colored fruits are at their freshest and juiciest in this season. And so, for a nice Parisian treat, you can take some and make a Tarte Tatin, or an apple tart. Take an apple's sweet flavor and lip-smacking juiciness and include them in a nice crunchy crust. That'd be quite the delicious experience indeed. Though it' not exactly the same as apple pie, its tantalizing taste can rival it anytime. As for enjoying it in Paris, pairing it with warm tea will hit the spot perfectly!
