Food Porn

Went to Duchess last night with a good friend to check it out and to see the space we'll be renting for our craft show.

And...

I may have fallen in love with the place.

The food is amazing. Just amazing. We both had a sandwich (Marissa's was prosciutto and Gruyere cheese and mine was boiled egg, greens and pork pate) and a bowl of the French onion soup. And a dessert. The sandwiches were delicious, no question about that but the star? Definitely was the French onion soup (and the desserts, but we'll get to that in a minute). It was thick with onions and the broth was hearty and flavourful. It quite possibly is the best French onion soup in the city but I'm willing to test that theory if anyone has any other contenders.

The dessert. I had macaroons. Two of them. And then I had to buy some for later because... Wow. Like, just, wow. I finally see the hype. I finally get why macaroons are so popular because...Wow. They were light, creamy, and packed with flavour. If you go there, I totally recommend the macaroons.

Food Porn. Lemon, rose, and orange poppyseed macaroons.

The space is amazing, by the way. I'm super excited for our show. If you haven't already checked out our show, out Facebook even is here. So excited to see you there!
