I remember watching this film on the flight back from Saudi Arabia to London. Really loved it! Couldn't help but to watch it again. It's such a magical film…unique and artistic in its own rights
The main character played by Own Wilson is rather clumsy, oblivious but adventures. He's focus was to find the hidden gems of Paris to get inspired for his novel that he is writing…but the hidden gems could only be found after midnight (hence the title Midnight in Paris). Marion Cotillard is in the film and my oh my how I love this French Rose!
The film is so delightful and portrays Paris beautifully, though I must admit, the portrayal of Paris in most films are mostly exaggerated and raise one's expectations of Paris…I visited Paris last year and it was not as magical as I expected it to be…to be honest the only magical city I know of is LONDON!
Anyways, I am going off the point now haha back to the film. I obviously paired it with a french delicacy; Macaroons. These little wonders taste amazing, are super sweet and best enjoyed with coffee. Before I even begin to write down the recipe, you must know that macaroons are highly priced for a reason; they are DIFFICULT to bake!
Yes that's right, it requires a lot of patient, gentleness and time. My oh my, this is perhaps the last time I am baking macaroons for the sake of 'leisure' reasons. Sorry if this may seem off-putting, but if you like have the patient and the passion to bake macaroons; thumbs up to you my friend.
Love and Peace
