If you happen to lay your hands on the latest issue of the Japanese magazine TITLE and leaf through it (remember to do so from right to left or expose yourself to the unrecoverable loss of all coolness and credibility) until page 96, you will find an article about C&Z and yours truly, complete with a picture!
Of course, if you’re like me you will have no idea what it says, but a trusted Japanese friend is on the case to help translate it.
I had been contacted by the editorial team a couple of months ago, as they were in Paris covering the Salon du Chocolat and all things Paris and chocolate. We met at a tiny new pâtisserie that I wanted to try, called “La Petite Rose” on the boulevard de Courcelles. We talked (a translator was on the team), we tried the chocolates and pastries, they took pictures, we smiled a lot (as is usually the case between people who have just the words “chocolate” and “kawaii” in common) and I had a truly delightful time.
And for someone who loves Japan and yearns to visit as much as I do, being featured in such a classy magazine (oh you should see the rest of it, filled with glossy chocolate pics, if only I could read it!) is no small honor.
Read (or um, simply look at) the whole article here.
