I’m going to Paris tomorrow (well, today actually). The main reason for the trip is to buy a flat-sided, 20cm diameter, 4cm deep flan ring. Such a thing appears to be impossible to find in London or online in the UK – crazy. I need it for the lemon tart recipe in Michel Roux’s Pastry. Of course, since I’ll be there anyway, I might as well stock up on a few other goodies. With the help of a fantastic little book and one incredibly useful website of recommendations, the day should be full of blog fodder.
