From Amy Thomas, author of Paris, My Sweet. A love affair with Paris, New York, sweets and, now, a little girl named Parker.
I know I'll be in the minority here, but I'll say it anyway: vanilla!
Ohhh... remember those little Dixie cups when you could get both? It depends on the treat. For example, I like a good vanilla macaron and vanilla milkshakes. But, oui, it's chocolate, toujours chocolate.
Vanilla is the most exotic flavor on earth! Pods plucked from orchids, for pete's sake!! Have you ever smelled an unroasted cacao bean? Stinky sweaty gym socks! God, throw these damn things into the fire! (But wait -- what IS that aroma..?)
