I tried to be haughty about desserts in jars and how it's such an obnoxious fad like taxidermy in bars and guys who ride bikes and grow beards. But then I had an amazing goat cheese and berry mousse in a jar and changed my mind. Put it all in a jar! All of it! I take it back! Jars are charming and it could probably be scientifically proven that they make food taste 25% better.
The one super ridiculous indulgence I allowed myself on my recent trip to Paris was a visit to Ladurée on the Champs-Élysées. It's spendy and extravagant and silly but how can I, in good conscience, run this site about cute foods and not eat at the mecca of cute food-dom? I only had a few macarons, and they were exquisite! I wish I could have packed my suitcase full of pink meringue goodies like this one but it wasn't to be.
